This 1957 Ford Thunderbird has great colors, two tops, and proper V8 power. It's all part of a total package that was carefully crafted and invested to make sure you have a triple-red head-turning iconic cruiser.

The trim tag tells us it was born a Flame Red convertible, which is always a desirable color. Today there's a deeper luster than the factory ever gave it thanks to a modern professional respray. The paint is part of the investment during a restoration that occurred around .....
2010. Since then, it looks like this has only left the garage to go on the occasional Sunday drive. That's why the finish continues to have the kind of gloss that loves the sunshine. And you can really tell there's an overall level of care in the details, like the clean glass, good rubber, and clear lights. Plus, all the chrome and trim make sure to set this apart with a solid shine. The contoured bumpers, hood scoop trim, windshield surround, fender vent trim, and real wire wheels all have an impressive glow. Add in the rear fender skirts, whitewalls, and dual exhaust routed through the rear bumper, and you have a detail-oriented classic that you can drive with pride.

The black folding roof looks good against the red car, but we really like the look of the color-matched hardtop with iconic porthole windows. And if you decide to go with no top at all, there's a terrific-looking red interior. So we call this a triple-red car because the paint, hardtop, and interior give you plenty of options to make sure this T-Bird represents a true red-blooded American classic. The door panels, carpeting, dash, and upholstery look clean and inviting thanks to a proper investment during the restoration. But the features you may just like the most are what keep this classic comfortable in modern times. You have rare and desirable options like power windows and a power seat. These are joined by well-integrated modern upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM radio and provisions for air conditioning (it's running modern R134a but will need servicing to blow cold again.) You'll love slipping behind the artful steering wheel, and this cruiser feels sporty thanks to the machine-turned dash panel, floor shifter, and full gauge package with tach.

This is a D-code car, and so under the hood is the optional ""Thunderbird Special"" 312 cubic-inch V8. It has an attractive and correct look with the bold red block, a polished pie dish air grabber, and finned valve covers with the T-Bird logo. While the style is vintage, the overall feeling is a well-maintained car, and it even has an Optima red top battery. It fires up readily, runs strong, and makes a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. And features like an automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes make it easy to hit the road at any time.

The sale comes with plenty of paperwork, including the original bill of sale, dealer invoice, owner's manual, maintenance records, and build receipts. This also comes with a trunk full of plenty of handy spare components. There has been the right care and investment that has gone into this Thunderbird. It makes for a standout all-red classic that represents the icon in all the best ways. Call today!!!
