Auction Block: 1957 Ford Thunderbird F-Bird

Antique automobiles are rare. We all know that. However, it’s not every day you come across an extreme rarity in the world of automobile collections. That’s right, we’re talking about this 1957 Ford Thunderbird F-Bird, only one of 17 known to exist today. And it’s primed for auction.

What’s incredible about this car isn’t just its supercharged 312-cubic inch V8 that takes you from 0-60 in under 6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 130mph, or that this very same engine puts out a formidable 300hp. Instead, what’s great about this F-Bird is the fact that it’s had only one owner ever since it was first purchased, allowing for the highly coveted F-code engine to be brilliantly intact and only accumulating a modest 50,174 miles since it first rolled off the lot more than a half century ago. The carburetor, intake manifold, tachometer, and blower belts are all original while the supercharger system was professionally restored. Want proof of its authenticity? The original factory invoice comes with the car as well, making it a legitimate and sinister addition to any muscle car enthusiast willing to drop between $250,000 – $275,000 for this beauty.
