Description
This 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code is a beautifully restored high-performance stocker that is loaded with options. 1957 was a banner year for the American car manufacturers, including Ford, who continued pushing horsepower output on their passenger car engine offerings. For Ford's Thunderbird line, buyers could order their Thunderbirds with 2 barrel carburetors with the smaller engines (223, 272, and 292). However, those looking for a bit more performance could order a 312 with a 4 barrel and .....
those looking for even more performance could order an E-Bird with a 312 and dual 4 barrel carburetors or an F-Bird with a supercharged 312 V8. As many Thunderbird collectors know, only 1,499 of the E-Code Thunderbirds were produced in '57. 1957 also was the first major redesign for the Thunderbird and was the last year of the ""Baby Birds."" The new 57 T-Bird trunks were elongated to house a spare tire and the rear quarters now featured sleek new tail fins. This E-Bird comes to us from Florida where it spent the last 10+ years. This particular Thunderbird is an E-Code. meaning that it features a 312 Cubic Inch V8 with dual 4 barrel carburetors. An automatic transmission is mated up to the powerful 312, ensuring that anybody can drive this Baby Bird. This '57 T-Bird is a well-optioned car as well. Power brakes makes bringing this E-Bird to a stop much easier and at the time were touted by Ford as ""so sensitive, you could put a light bulb between your foot and the brake pedal an bring the car to a full stop without breaking the glass."" With Power Steering, getting in and out of tight spaces was also made much easier; so much so that in 1957 Ford said that it ""cut effort by 75 percent."" The exterior has been beautifully re-painted in basecoat/clearcoat in its original color, Gunmetal Grey. This E-Bird also comes with a white Porthole Hard Top that is in wonderful condition. The Colonial White bench seat interior on this 57 Thunderbird provides a nice contrast to the Gunmetal exterior and is correct for the car. The bench seat is also a 4 way adjustable power seat which was a rare option in 1957. The door panels, steering wheel, carpet and dash all have an excellent look and appear stock. The dash is equipped with a 140 MPH speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and clock, as well as a Town and Country Radio. Whether you're looking for your very first baby bird or you're looking to add a rare E-Bird to your collection, this 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code would be an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
