1957 Ford Thunderbird
- 312 V8
- AS-IS No Warranty
Great driving Thunderbird! Red exterior with black/white interior. Older red paint still shows well with few flaws. Interior is clean with slight age wear. Custom stereo with bluetooth. Smaller 15" stock style steering wheel allows for more legroom. Softtop frame was powdercoated and a new cloth softtop was installed. Hardtop was resealed, etc. as well.
In 2016 the 312 engine was rebuilt using ARP bolts and upgraded billet rear main seal holder. Sealed Power .060 over pistons. Flex-a-lite fan. Pertronix electronic ignition. New distributor. New radiator. Holley carb. The 3 speed manual transmission was gone through and a new clutch was installed. Working overdrive as well. Very cold air conditioning.
The suspension was rebuilt and a power rack and pinion steering system was installed. Power 4 wheel disc brakes. Chrome Torq-thrust rims with custom Thunderbird spinner center caps.
The car runs and drives excellent and has a very modern feel with the suspension and steering upgrades. There have been approx. 5,000 miles put on the car since all of the mechanical work was done. Clean California title in-hand.
