FORD THUNDERBIRD PHASE I/II (1957) CAR HISTORY

Car review on FORD THUNDERBIRD PHASE I/II

Most desirable of all Thunderbirds was the rare 300 bhp (223 kW) supercharged 1957 F-Bird, of which just 208 were made. The car came about through Ford wanting to compete in a flying-mile competition at Daytona Beach, Florida. NASCAR ran the event and stipulated that in order to compete, the car must be homologated, so Ford made the necessary amount of 200 and fitted each one with a Paxton-McCulloch centrifugal supercharger which gave an extra 75 bhp (56 kW) and 40 lb ft (54 Nm) torque, enough to propel the car to a flying mile of 93.312mph (150.13 km/h), beating the record held by a Duntov Corvette. The car went through very few changes other then the addition of a blower, but because of its rarity, an unrestored clean model can now command a price upwards of $60,000. Few are left, but Ford fans who grew up at the time of the two-seater Thunderbirds pay for good examples.
