AutoHunter Spotlight: 1957 Ford Thunderbird resto-mod

Restored and modified T-Bird finished in Deep Teal Metallic is up for auction


Today’s AutoHunter Spotlight is on a 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible resto-mod that’s been driven only 500 miles since the rebuild of its Windsor 351cid V8.

“The iconic shape is accentuated by a hood scoop, fender gates, modest tailfins, and dual rounded taillamps,” the seller notes in the car’s auction listing on AutoHunter.

The Deep Teal Metallic body rides on an all-new front clip and is equipped with a color-matched removable hardtop with porthole windows.

Inside, the interior has been reupholstered in a two-tone black and gray vinyl and given a matching black center console with cup holders and storage bin.

Under the hood, the Windsor 351cid V8 was given custom performance headers, a chrome-finished air cleaner and Ford Racing valve covers. Power is sent to the rear via a C4 3-speed automatic transmission.

This Thunderbird’s auction ends June 1 at 12:20 p.m. PDT.
