Description* :
When ford introduced its two seat thunderbird in 1955, it became an instant success. It was a real crowd pleaser and attracted people to ford’s showrooms across the country. It was the first personal car, a forerunner of todays thunderbirds, cougars, grand prix’s and others. It started the unofficial category of pony car’s , as compared to less sports car like muscle cars. (I know because i drove a new 55 t-bird myself).Thunderbirds are technical marvels, the magic still belongs to the original two-seat thunderbird. The last two seat thunderbird was the ‘57 model and by many accounts is the prettiest. With its gently flaring fins and slightly refined grill, the ‘57 thunderbirds that still turns heads today. The standard engine was a 212 hp v-8 with 292 cubic inches and a two barrel carburetor. The biggest engine available in 1957 was an awesome v-8 of 312 cubic inches with supercharger. This predates the ‘89 thunderbird by 32 years. The “bird” had a choice of 3 transmissions. A conventional 3-speed, a three speed with overdrive, and a fordomatic torque converter and three speed planetary. The removable hard-top was made of fiberglass, there was also a soft canvas top in either black, blue, tan, or white. This particular kit played a part in the history of the 1957 thunderbird, ford had ordered promotional models of the two seat car from the original amt corporation for all the dealers across the nation. The mold that made these 1/25 promos was later converted into a model kit tool, the same tool that made this kit you are about to build. Enjoy working with your little bit of original thunderbird history. The kit is molded in grey, chrome and clear. It is an official licensed product of ford.
