1957 Thunderbird for sale
This is an Amos Minter vehicle purchased on June 30, 1999 in Dallas. Minter certified that I was the third owner of the car Minter had purchased in California.
The car is white with a black hard top and comes with a black soft top stored behind the bench seat.
The car is equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering and power brakes. The car was determined by Minter to be in good condition and was in the process of being completely restored when purchased by me.
In 2005 I decided to have the car completely restored by Performance Auto Crafters located in Locust Grove. While they were performing the inside and outside restoration including sanding down to bare metal, the engine and transmission were rebuilt at Dominion Auto, also in Locust Grove. The total cost of the project exceeded $16,000 and took two years to complete.
The car has been garage kept and driven to and from Virginia Classic Thunderbird Club events. Five years ago we decided to install an air conditioning unit used in Ford Mustangs and was a Godsend driving the car in hot and humid weather.
My wife and I are at the age where it has become exceeding difficult driving to and from club events which means driving 200 to 250 miles. We would like the car to preferably remain with a VCTC member and as much as we hate to part with car, it has become necessary. Peg and I intend to keep our membership in the club but without the 57 Bird. I am open to all offers in this matter.
