1957 Thunderbird Among classic car restorers, the “good ol’ days” of the 1950s provide some of the best classic cars to work on. One such vehicle is the 1957 Ford Thunderbird. The concept for the Ford Thunderbird began in 1953 as a response to the ever-popular Chevrolet Corvette, and while both are popular, there are certainly things about the Thunderbird that will always set it apart from the Corvette. The Thunderbird itself was on the production line from 1955-1997, and then again from 2002-2005 as a personal luxury vehicle, even though the idea had come about years before Ford began production on the Thunderbird.

1940 Ford Deluxe

Since its early days, Ford has long been an automobile company with the ability to somehow withstand difficult tests from difficult economies to wavering public opinion and even two world wars. Just before the United States entered into World War II following the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor, Ford produced a model which had a cool, sleek look. The 1940 Ford Deluxe was a vehicle whose appearance made it seem as though things were not as dire as was reality: the world had plunged into economic turmoil and many countries were in chaos. Below, we examine this classic car; take a look.
