To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 22 January 2021.
Estimate:
$40,000 - $50,000

  • Period-correct 245 hp, 312 cu. in. V-8 engine featuring chrome dress-up kit
  • Three-speed ‘Ford-o-Matic’ automatic transmission
  • Torch Red over red interior; Torch Red ‘porthole’ hardtop
  • Delivered new to Los Angeles, California
  • Benefits from a well-maintained older frame-off restoration



The Torch Red over red vinyl Thunderbird offered here was completed on 9 January 1957 and was designated as the year’s 1,394th unit delivered for distribution to the Los Angeles sales district. Originally clad in Colonial White with a Colonial White and Raven Black interior of pleated vinyl, this Thunderbird received its present livery and mechanical improvements as a result of a frame-off restoration commissioned by a previous owner and executed by H&A Automotive Specialists of Tyler, Texas. The handsome set of chrome wire wheels—shod in wide whitewall tires of the correct style—house hydraulic drum brakes at each corner. A color-matched “porthole” top, chrome driver’s side mirror, and rear fender skirts complete the exterior appeal of this Thunderbird.

This Thunderbird is powered by a nicely detailed and chrome-dressed 312 cubic inch “Thunderbird” V-8 engine equipped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. Power is routed to the rear wheels via a three-speed “Ford-o-Matic” automatic transmission. Inside the cabin a modern push-button radio and heater/defroster unit compliment the notable presence of power steering and manually operated windows.

This attractive Thunderbird has resided within the collection of the consignor since 2012. While in the current owner’s care, the car is said to have been kept on a maintenance and driving schedule to ensure proper operation and ready enjoyment. It is now offered for sale accompanied by a handbook, service records, and restoration photo album.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az21.
