Lot #716.1 - This surely ranks among the finest driving '57 T-Birds anywhere. In the frame-off Frank Stubbs restoration, it was fitted with some subtle yet important upgrades to make it better out on the highway. The carburetor has been upgraded to a Holley 4-barrel with electric choke. A Vintage Air system was added along with cruise control, electric wipers and a custom center console. Other touches include a padded dash, full trunk carpeting and a retro style AM/FM cassette player that fits into the stock Town & Country space and has controls for a CD changer should you choose to add one. Furthermore, this car has upgraded bushings, springs, rear sway bar and a tuned suspension making it drive superb with very tight handling. The previous owner drove the length of Route 66 with his wife when the restoration was completed in 2003 and they didn't encounter a single issue. The car has been fastidiously cared for since and shows in absolutely immaculate condition throughout. It represents the best of both worlds by having the proper look, yet with modern upgrades and reliability that make it drive great.
