Danbury Mint / 1957 Ford Thunderbird / 50th Anniversary Ltd. Ed. 5,000 / DM Discontinued / 1:24th Scale
This model marks, for 2007, the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the 1957 Thunderbird. The exterior data plate color code for this offering is X; Dusk Rose. The interior data plate color code is XA for Black & White vinyl. Engine code on this specific bird was the D 312 cube, 245 horse V8. The top is black. Suspension is operational, skirts are removable, wind wings and sun visors work and the doors are internally hinged. NO CONTINENTAL KIT! The removable spare and tire jacking tools are another DM hallmark. The interior gauges and instrumentation are truly realistic. The window cranks and door handles are perfectly scaled too. The last production 1957 T-Bird was produced on 12/13/1957 after extending build time by three months. A total of 21,350 57s were made, accounting for more units sold than either the 55 or 56. The car lost its two-place sports car role in Fords fifties history when the 58 became a four-seat tourer and gone were the baby birds.
