When a black 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Bird was chosen as Deal of the Day in the Cars-On-Line newsletter this week, they wondered, “Where in the world does Bayou Classic Cars find all these great buys on classic Ford Thunderbirds?” They have three of them in their inventory at various price ranges.
This black 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Bird is being offered for sale at the lowest price we’ve ever seen on an E Code first generation Thunderbird. We should point out that they consider this a perfect candidate for a thorough restoration, so it is more of a project car than a show car. Yet they also say it runs and drives well. The paint and interior need work as described in the ad. (Follow this link to see more photos and read their ad description.) But they say it is a real E Code 312 ci with matching numbers and actual dual quad carbs. The 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Bird could be worth close to six figures if restored correctly. The asking price is $27,500. That is not a lot to pay for a car that could go six figures with a top quality restoration.
The Deal of the Day preview gives you first shot at all the cars that will be featured on the Cars On Line home page. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page. So here is a preview of all of this week’s Deals of the Day as published in the fresh edition of the COL newsletter.
