1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code Thunderbird Bronze

Description

The 1957 T-Bird advanced from sporty boulevardier to record-setting performer with the introduction of a new dual 4-barrel carburetor induction system on the optional 312 CI Y-Block V-8 engine. Offered under the E-Code designation, the new engine package used twin Holley 4-barrels on a cast aluminum intake manifold, a high-performance camshaft and 9.7:1 compression to produce a factory rating of 271 HP at 5,100 RPM and 336 lb-ft of torque at 3,400. The E-Code V-8 was at its most effective with the robust (and now quite rare) BorgWarner T85 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive found in this concours-winning example.
Finished in stunning Thunderbird Bronze with a Crème interior with proper embossments, this 1957 E-Code is offered with both a porthole hard top and soft top. The engine compartment is outstanding in every aspect, showcasing such details as the correct Holley ECJ9510 4-barrel carburetors and linkage, correct “garbage-can” fuel filter and original-style battery.
