This 1957 Ford Thunderbird, sporting its original Flame Red paint, is a museum-quality masterpiece just a few years out of a full Amos Minter frame-off restoration. The vibrant Flame Red hue dances in the light, a modern interpretation that pays homage to the T-Bird's classic lines. And we would never say anything is ""perfect"", but the paint quality remains pretty spectacular, even today. It's evident that it was laid down very skillfully and then meticulously maintained .....
ever since. LED headlights add a touch of contemporary flair to the timeless design and Kelsey-Hayes style 14"" wire wheels wrapped in 205/75R14 Coker Classic whitewalls complete the look, a perfect blend of vintage elegance and modern reliability. The hardtop is in excellent shape, and a tonneau cover is included if you opt for open-air adventures.

The red vinyl interior is a stunning complement to the exterior, presenting like new. The bench seat features fresh upholstery and seatbelts for added safety. The dash, cluster, aluminum trim, steering wheel, and knobs are all in impeccable condition, as are the door panels and white vinyl headliner overhead. Modern conveniences abound, including a 4-way power seat, power windows, and even air conditioning (although the A/C's blower motor does seem to need some attention). Every gauge lights up, a testament to the thoroughness of the restoration.

Under the hood lies a rebuilt 312 c.i. - 245HP Thunderbird Special V8 - D Series engine. Topped with a Holley 4-barrel carb, it provides plenty of power, delivered smoothly through a 2-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission. Power steering and power front disc brakes make for effortless driving and the undercarriage is as impressive as the engine bay, with fully rebuilt suspension components. In addition, an Optima red top battery is tucked away in the trunk for a clean look and optimal weight distribution.
