You don't need to be a Thunderbird expert to know that this isn't your average T-Bird. This beast of a convertible is called the Thunderbird F-Bird and it packs a 312-cubic inch V8 and a Paxton-McCulloch VR57 supercharger that helps it put out 300 hp making it capable of a sub-six second 0-60 time and a top speed of 130 mph. 

Produced in the summer of 1957, this F-Bird is factory supercharged and had one single owner in California who had maintained the car until his passing. The odometer has a mileage of just 50,174 miles and features an impressive list of original parts including the carburetor, intake manifold, and tachometer drive dual-point distributor.
