We are presenting this very nice 57 Thunderbird. It is an older restoration that was an award winner when it was presented at the Concourse De Elegance of Dallas in 1996.   The baby bird is still in very nice condition. It is a driver quality car that will still hold it's own at local car shows.    The passenger window is not working.    The small dash light over the radio is not working, and the front face of the A/C unit is hanging down a bit because it appears to be broken. The air conditioner is working properly.   Considering the car was restored back in the 1990s, it is still in very good condition. The interior is very nice. The carpet has faded a bit and there is a small flaw on the dash. Other than that, the upholstery is very nice.

There is this small imperfection on the dash. The rest of the dash is very nice.   The 57 Thunderbird is an iconic classic and still very collectible.    The engine compartment is detailed and includes a brand new correct battery. This is said to be the original 312 engine.    The blue canvas soft top is in excellent condition.    The undercarriage is solid. There doesn't appear to be any rust.    The wire wheels are all in very good condition. These wheels are a great option on these great old Baby Birds.    The data tag shows that the car is it's original colors, Colonial White and Dresden Blue and Starmist Blue interior.   

The hard top is not restored, but doesn't need much to bring it back. New seals and latches and paint will have it looking like new. THe headliner is good as well as the back window.    There are some chips and imperfections in the paint, but it is still very presentable.    We have an entire folder of receipts and photos of the restoration.    This is your chance to own a very nice collectable 57 Thunderbird for a great price. With just a few upgrades it can be a great show car again as well.
