Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this beautiful, numbers matching, blue 1957 Ford Thunderbird! After 60 years this car has only covered 80,414 miles. A number better suited to a 5 year old car. The 1957 Thunderbird is part of the first generation of the car which was produced between 1955 and 1957. It was Ford’s direct response to the Corvette and underwent a rapid development process so it could ultimately be unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show in February of 1954. Production began in September of 1954 for 1955 model years to be sold in October. The Thunderbird was revised for 1957 with a reshaped front bumper, a larger grille and tailfins, and larger tail lamps. The instrument panel was heavily re-styled with round gauges in a single pod, and the rear of the car was lengthened, allowing the spare tire to be positioned back in the trunk. The 312 cu in V8 became the Thunderbird's standard engine, and now produced 245 horsepower. The shape of this car is undeniably 50’s and probably one of the most beautiful cars of it’s time. This was a time when Elvis Presley was releasing incredible and timeless classics on the radio and movies like 12 Angry Men were making their first appearance in the box office. Ford made this car to be well equipped and it certainly was. This one has air conditioning for those hot summer days, AM radio to keep you entertained and a manual convertible top to get you that little bit closer to the elements. You will find the drive incredibly easy with the cars power brakes and steering, seat belts, tilt wheel and beautiful blue interior. This is a stunning example of an iconic American classic car and it’s something that shouldn’t be missed. Call the Houston showroom at (832) 243-6220 for more information on this vehicle.
