1957 Ford Thunderbird, One of Less than 1,400 E-Code Cars, Documented History With a Believed 72,437 Original Miles, Multiple Show Winning Restoration An already special show car. But unlike many cars from this era, there is comprehensive original documented provenance leading back to the purchase of the car which helps verify mileage and proves that all of the options were in fact factory originally fitted. Included original documentation shows it was delivered and sold through Ford of Canada into British Columbia. The car stayed in Canada between 1958 and 1978 when it was imported into the US with a documented odometer reading of 68,500 miles. In 1982, this car was purchased out of Newcastle, WA by its previous owner who embarked on a painstaking 13 year restoration. During this time, he set out on a full body off frame end-to-end restoration with all matching numbered pieces and exclusively new old-stock FoMoCo (Ford Motor Co.) parts – this is all well documented with photos included in the sale. Upon completion in 1995, this car went on to win documented national CTCI (Classic Thunderbird Club International) concours awards and documented recognition. Anytime an incorrect item was identified, it was fixed or replaced with the original pieces to make it that much closer to perfect. After achieving the pinnacle of success and recognition, in 1997 this awesome car was safely wrapped and put into protective storage, until it was recommissioned by a new collector owner in 2020. Since 2020 this car has been fully refreshed, tuned and serviced — including new Coker Classic radial wide white wall tires, new factory correct 12 volt battery, new old stock FoMoCo gas tank, service and replaced brakes, Stayfast canvas soft top, plus draining and replacing all fluids and filters. As recently as 2022, this spectacular car continued to win numerous awards, including a 1st Place for Thunderbirds 1955-2005 at the All Ford Car Show in Kent, WA and Best in Show — Griot’s Garage Shinefest Car Show, Tacoma, WA. The list of original documentation and awards this car has earned is extensive and deserves taking a look – if you are in the market for a “Baby Bird” era Thunderbird or a showcase attention grabbing collectible car – its hard to imagine a better looking more collectible one than this!
