Vehicle Story

This 1957 Ford Thunderbird is finished in Raven Black over black and white vinyl interior and is powered by a D-code 312ci Y-block V8 with four-barrel carburetor mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. Delivered new through Kenz & Leslie of Denver, Colorado, the car was acquired by the seller 3 years ago who has since added 1.3K of the 27K miles shown. Seller believes this to be an original paint car. Power steering built specifically for the 1957 model year was added by the seller in 2017. This first-generation T-Bird is now offered with a rear spare and jack, hardtop holder, custom car cover, records and receipts dating back to 2017 and a clear Texas title in the seller's name.

Refreshed for the 1957 model year, the Thunderbird received a reshaped grille and larger tail fins and taillights. The Raven Black (A) paint shown in the photo gallery below is believed to be original per the seller and the seller notes no history of paint or bodywork nor evidence of rust. Small nicks and scratches in the paint are pictured.

Factory Kelsey Hayes 14” wheels are fitted to Bedford bias-ply whitewall tires on all four corners. Photos of the removable porthole hardtop are included in the gallery, though a soft top is not equipped on this example.

The interior shows black and white vinyl upholstery along with matching two-tone door panels, a black dashboard top, and metal trim. A 15” replica steering wheel was installed by the seller with the original 18” steering wheel included in the sale. The dash features a Town and Country radio, along with climate-control switchgear for the aftermarket air conditioning.
 

Instrumentation includes a center-fixed 140-mph speedometer surrounded by gauges for fuel, amperage, temperature, a 5K-rpm tachometer and an analogue clock. The odometer shows 26,993 miles.

The D-code 312ci Y-block v8 features a four-barrel carburetor good for 245 horsepower when new. Mated to a 3-speed manual transmission, power is sent through the rear wheels via a convention 3.56:1 rear axle. A recent oil change was performed in preparation for the sale. 
 

Additional photos showing the underside are shown in the gallery.

Included in the sale is the original 18" wheel, a shop manual and custom cover
