Vehicle description

Rare 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code, frame off restored, painted in Raven Black with matching black and white interior, and a black hard top. One of only 1,443 built, and one of only 280 with over drive and a rare T-85 three-speed manual transmission. This rare E-Code Thunderbird received a frame-off restoration 8 years ago and has been driven less than 400 miles since then. The original 312/270hp E-Code engine was rebuilt by a Ronnie Groff, a professional Thunderbird engine builder in San Antonio, Texas. This is topped off with correct dual quad Holley carburetors and "Sure Swift" power brakes. Even the factory Town amp; Country radio was rebuilt and upgraded with blue tooth technology and the clock was rebuilt as well. The car comes with a rare port hole delete hard top and a full tonneau cover. Sorry, no cumbersome soft top to drag out behind the seats and scratch the car. This beautiful E Bird is rolling on correct Kelsey Hayes wire wheels and Firestone wide whites for that factory correct look.
