This 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible was bought new in 1957 by the editor of Road and Track Magazine!! On August 1. 1957. Dean Bachelor. then editor of Road and Track magazine. walked in the front door of Fortner Motor Co. in Los Angeles. Cal. to drive his new T-bird home. This bird. Dean stated he bought this car twice. Dean had the means to personalize in a well engineered first class way. Dean objected to the "eyebrow" look over the headlights and had a custom shop rework them to 1953 headlight rims. He later stated that no more than six people ever noticed it. which was. in his opinion. successful customizing. The original 14 inch rims were replaced with 15 inchers to improve ride and extend tire and brake life. The original grille was reworked to six horizontal tubes furthering the different-from-the-rest look. Dean featured the bird in several magazines showing detailed pics of the transformation process. (Rod and Custom. Feb. 1959 and Road and Track May 1960) The latter article compared it to the Sunbeam Alpine. Fast forward to the 21st century to discover the opportunity to purchase a piece of automobile history. Piles of documentation and paperwork. many photos from back in the day including original bill of sale. receipts. magazines and so much more. American auto makers were on top of the world in 1957. Styling. performance and jet-set cool. Many consider the '57 Thunderbird and the '57 Bel-Air to be the two most iconic cars of all time. But the end was in sight as Ford clipped the wings on the georgous two-seater Bird and introduced the '58 Square-bird. Even though the '57 Bird outsold the '57 Corvette by over 15. 00 cars. So. what makes this bird stand apart from the rest?The original 312 c. u. 4V V-8 engine was overhauled aprox. two thousand miles ago. Truly a great investment. Drives great. looks great! What more can you want? How about ice cold air conditioning. Yes. it's included too! We are currently taking offers at our showroom and may end the listing at any.
