Prior to being imported into the UK from the highly regarded Classic Car Studio dealership, St Louis, in 2007, we understand that the car was subject to a frame-off restoration, with work being carried out to a concours- winning standard.
In stunning Torch Red, this car has been a high-spec example from new, with many factory optional- extra boxes being ticked. These include both tops- the white concealable soft-top, and a Colonial White hardtop with aforementioned 1957-only porthole. In addition, it has full chrome wire wheels, the matching-numbers 312cu in “Thunderbird Special V8” pushing out 245 bhp, pleated 'flame' vinyl interior and 3 speed Ford-o-matic gearbox. This car is a real beauty and it's wonderful to see that she is finished as per her original build specification.
With a real attention to detail and having only cover 7800miles since the rebuild, the car remains in spectacular condition and this is evident in the collection of trophies it has from the American Auto Club UK (Best in Show), US Summer Nationals (Car of the Show), Americana (Best Thunderbird), Classic Americana (Best in Show), plus numerous other trophies and rosettes.
The 312 cubic inch Y-block engine starts on the button and with a custom built 'Custom Chrome Racing' exhaust system, the car has a wonderfully intoxicating V8 rumble.
The 3 speed Ford-o-matic gearbox shifts smoothly and with the rumble of the exhausts you know there is sufficient power under your right foot.
The interior is in mint condition, as is the boot and hard top too.
This outstanding example is undoubtedly one of the best in the UK.
