For sale in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom is a creampuff 1957 Ford Thunderbird. When discussing this car, two things stand out immediately. First is the name Bob Pittman. Hailing from Nashville, TN, Mr. Pittman is renowned for his restorations of the Baby Birds, and this Porsche Red is an outstanding example of his handy work. Piggybacking on that name is every car fan’s favorite two words: rotisserie restoration. Add the two together, and you find yourself at this marvelous machine you see before you.
Before this build was begun, a car with very specific options was selected from California. This car was factory equipped with the 312 CID V8 making 245hp, the 3 speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, power windows, power seat, power steering, power brakes, and the AM/FM radio. But of course, finding the right car is only half the battle. Reading this build list, there is one word that makes a very frequent appearance: new. Nearly every part you can think of is new or rebuilt as such. Yes, even that part. If requested, a list of these parts can be provided.
As mentioned earlier, this is not an original Ford color. Instead, the decision was made to paint this car in a shade of red used by Porsche. Additionally, a custom taupe leather interior was chosen to set this T-Bird apart from the crowd. This is a decision some may question, until they see the car in person and realize what a massive difference this little change can make in the car’s presence. With the top off this Thunderbird will take your breath away.
As said before, there is simply too much to list on a car this well built. A comprehensive list of the restoration, as well as progress pictures can be made available upon request.
