Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is pleased to digitally present this attractive first generation 1957 Ford Thunderbird. These small, two-seat roadsters that were first on sale in 1955 as a response to GM's Corvette have always been highly collectible and recognizable classic cars. Though it's clear that sportiness was a part of Ford's vision for the car, Thunderbirds were marketed as "Personal Luxury Cars" and had an emphasis on comfort, convenience and technology as a result. The '57 was particularly well received with 21,380 examples sold that year (around 25% more than in 1955 and '56). Painted in a classy blue with a matching White Hardtop, this T-Bird for sale features steel wheels with hubcaps surrounded by white-wall Firestone bias ply tires and desirable fender skirts at the rear. Check out those tailfins too! Under the hood is a clean, 312 CID V8 tied to a 3-speed automatic transmission. This Thunderbird's Black and White vinyl interior will bring you right back to the glory days of 1950's America. The original AM radio is still in the car as well as the original gauges. Easily remove the Hardtop and you can take this T-Bird out "topless", completely changing the appearance of this 2-door classic. It's time for you to invest in some style and fun with this 1957 Ford Thunderbird for sale.
