Test Driving 1957 Ford Thunderbird 312 V8 Tri-power Hot Rod

We thought it was time to take the 1957 Ford Thunderbird for a little drive through the country. This amazing automobile was restored and modified by Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. It’s a bit of a hot rod, with the 312 Y-block V8 equipped with John Mummert’s aluminum heads, an Edelbrock tri-power setup, and a set of headers. For a car of this vintage, this thing will really scoot. That beautiful paint was sprayed by Manns’ very own Jeremy Pruneau, then sanded and buffed to perfection by Craig Wimmer. Jarrod Vidacak, of Manns in-house upholstery shop, provided the amazing two-tone interior. This truly is one of the most beautiful Thunderbirds we have ever come across. We hope you find it interesting…thanks for taking a look!
