Or, for any true car fanatic who wants to experience America’s first “personal luxury car”, there is no better place to rent a 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible than in Los Angeles – where you can take the top down and cruise through the beach towns and the Sunset Strip in style!
Before you take your historical drive, you might want to know some interesting facts about the history of the 1957 Ford Thunderbird. 1957 was the last and best year of the first generation Thunderbird models because Ford had replaced the cumbersome Continental kiton earlier models with a more shapely, longer tail with room for both a spare tire and luggage storage. During this time, Ford was also competing against Corvette’s similar model and sought to outdo its rival giving the 1957 Thunderbird its most powerful base engine of 212 horsepower – which was considered to be a ferocious beast at the time. 1957 proved to be the 2-seat T-Bird’s best year.
While the first generation Thunderbirds were engineered to drive like a sports roadster, special attention was given to its luxury appeal. The perfect blend of Ford’s classic circular lights and modest fins, but boasting a sleeker and more elegant shape. Also defining its new “personal luxury car” status, Ford put a much greater focus on the Thunderbird’s comfort and convenience features. As a result, the two-door convertible Thunderbird remains one of the most savored classic cars of all time.
