History of the 1957 Ford Thunderbird

The Thunderbirds that arrived in showrooms for 1957 carried a number of significant changes, the most obvious being to the styling. A larger grille was fitted to aid cooling, along with revamped bumpers front and rear; subtle tailfins marked the rear fenders, and a lengthened trunk now incorporated the spare tire again but left room for luggage. A strengthened frame handled the car's extended trunk, and smaller 14-inch wheels replaced the previous 15s. New upholstery patterns and a round-dial instrument cluster derived from that in 1956 Fords also appeared.

 

Still, more power could be had for 1957, not only inside with the complex Dial-A-Matic memory power seat, but under the hood; five engines were available, and they included the carryover 202hp, Ford 2-bbl.-carbureted 292-cu.in. V-8 and the single 4-bbl-carbureted D-code 312-cu.in. Thunderbird Special V-8, which made 245hp at 4,500 rpm and 332-lbs.ft. of torque at 3,200 rpm with 9.7 compressions. Stepping up to the E-code Special 8V brought dual Holley four-barrels, 270hp at 4,800 rpm and 332-lbs.ft. of torque at 2,300 rpm, or with 10.0 compression, 285hp at 5,000 rpm. The rarest and most powerful original Thunderbirds, the F-series, were equipped with the Corvette-stomping Special Supercharged V-8, a 312-cu.in. unit with 8.5-compression, a 4-bbl. Holley and a McCullough-Paxton model VR-57 centrifugal supercharger that made an underrated 300hp at 4,800 and 345-lbs.ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm.

 

The last two-seat Thunderbird was built on December 13, 1957, and it was replaced by the far better-selling (but to many, less collectible) four-seat "square bird;" 53,166 units were built in the car's first three years. Although nearly all of the "luxury/personal cars" have disappeared from new car dealerships today, enthusiasts can thank Ford's Thunderbird for inspiring that genre, whose ranks included the Buick Riviera, Oldsmobile Toronado, Cadillac Eldorado, Lincoln Continental Mark IV, and the Pontiac Grand Prix and Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
