loudbang, that's a beautiful, red 55. I think it's a timeless look.
I once pulled up to a coffee shop in my 55, when a kid walked out the door and said, "Is that a Corvette?" Although he didn't know what it was, it certainly caught his attention.
Love that Bird....would love to see more of it!
That is TOUGH. What's it got going on under the hood?
Sorry I don't know there was just the photo with no caption.
Very cool looking ! I would love to see how your created and routed your exhaust with the side cutoffs !!
I found one of the expired advertisements for that black '57 with the cutouts. It has Stewart-Warner gauges, but is apparently "just" a D-code 245-hp, 312 with an overdrive. I'd drive it!
LOL it's not mine I just found a photo of it.
@loudbang , that for your ongoing photo additions to this thread.
I miss seeing this one around!
My kid when he was little showing off with our 55 Jr. I restored.
I don't know how any gear head couldn't like the 55-57 Thunderbird.. The platform to this car is very strong. It comes with nice long lower front control arms, flat upper front control arms. This should make dialing in a decent amount of positive caster fairly easy...
Maybe I’m stupid and very naive, but, at 70 years young, I’m not giving up on truly good times with friends and family, especially family. When I’m gasping for my last breath, I want to be sure that the kids and Mom are Ok. Other than that I’m living every day to the full. 56 Birds was always were on my list. And this one is just plain old fun.

Dad’s ‘57 D. Owned since ‘82.
Bringing this one back just because. I would like to know more about it, where it is etc. Love everything about. Great FI adaptation for this.
Just search the name and maybe + thunderbird to avoid thousands of bird results.
For wheels I like a nice set of Cragar Sparklers 15x7 with 235/60r15 up front.
