Description
Lot #52 - Offered for your driving pleasure is this 1957 Ford Thunderbird that has only 200 miles since the completion of a total ground-up restoration. This car is not an original restoration. Instead the car has had modifications to make it into a true pleasure to drive and show. The original 292cid Ford engine has been replaced with a Ford 302 Mustang engine. The 302 engine has been modified with the addition of a high performance cam and lifters, Edelbrock 600 cfm carb, Edelbrock performance manifold, chrome valve covers, Jet-Hot silver coated exhaust manifold, electronic ignition, chrome serpentine belt system, high capacity water pump, chrome coil and wire loom brackets, chrome, high capacity alternator and chrome air filter. The Ford C4 transmission and torque converter were rebuilt 400 miles ago and a shifter kit was installed, and an original radiator was re-cored to heavy duty specification. Overflow cooling was added, Flex-a-lite Black Magic electric fan installed, rotary type air conditioning installed with chrome accumulator, power steering pump was replaced with GM high capacity pump with Chrome PS reservoir, B-Quiet (Aircraft grade) sound and heat insulation was installed throughout interior, AM/FM Cassette radio in 1957 T-Bird dash form, 200 Watt Sound amplifier and dual custom stereo speakers installed in seat backs. Also features a new red interior with new padded dash, new red carpet, custom hand paint job in Antique White, 14.4" Leather banjo type Grant Steering wheel and electric wipers. The convertible top is in fair condition and has no hard top. Also has front disc brakes with proportional master cylinder, and 225 x 15 Radial tires on chrome Hot Rod-type wheels. This T-Bird rides safely and very quickly and drives like a modern car. The original radio, rims and hubcaps go with car.
