1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Description

You are viewing an original 1957 Ford Thunderbird Roadster. The car was an original "Thunderbird Bronze" which was a Thunderbird only promotional color. Only 1957 Thunderbirds were offered in this color. This is a QQ color code meaning the top was also bronze. This old car was found in Santa Ana, California having been purchased from the second owner from new. The car always remained in the southern California area. The floors are perfect without even the slightest rust. Under the trunk mats and passenger carpets is the original factory primer. The car underwent a cosmetic restoration in the 90's including paint, seat coverings and chroming the bumpers. The integrity of the bumpers are fine as there is no sign of rust. The cheap chrome is lifting. These bumpers will restore nicely. The stainless windshield surrounds are perfect along with the vent window frames. All of the glass is very good. See the images. The door panels are original. The trunk floor and spare tire wheel well is perfect. There is most of the jack although the bracket that connects to the bumper is missing. The tires are new and correct to factory specs. The engine starts with ease. There is no smoke and the car does not leak oil or transmission fluid. The car will need general maintenance before driving due to the 20 years of storage. I have not driven the car at highway speeds although the transmission seems to operate as it should. The car stops but will need inspection and maintenance.This is a D code car having the correct carburetor. There is no folding top assembly. The hardtop will restore nicely.The headliner and latches are fine. The stainless surround at the body is perfect.
This car has a clear California title in my name.
