Seldom in the history of the automobile industry has a company achieved the success Ford reached in creating the Thunderbird. The car stunned the automotive world and the effect was a lasting one. It gave to America and the world a handsome car that was entirely in the American idiom — a practical and enjoyable car for daily transportation and long trips, and a stylish, yet unique sporting machine with excellent performance and intriguing pedigree. The 1957 two-seat Ford Thunderbird is among the most recognized iconic American cars. It's been put in television shows, movies and print advertisements, not to mention being pictured on a U.S. postage stamp. Absolute evidence of the two-seat Thunderbird's impact on the motoring world came just four years after the last one was built when Today Show host Dave Garroway referred to it as "an American classic." Generally, it takes decades for a car to receive such recognition. Constructed of die-cast metal and high-impact plastic, these machines are not meant for kids. The 1:18 scale 1957 Ford Thunderbird comes with doors that open, fully functioning steering, four wheel suspension, detailed chassis and separate exhaust system. Today, the remaining'57 two-seaters are in the hands collectors and restorers and on the pages of automotive history. The 1957 Ford Thunderbird would go for more millions at auction. But Stauer can put you behind these wheels for a fraction of a fraction of that price. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
