Trim Code on my '57 Tag doesn't match my car

  2. My thought is that some one replaced the Black & White with red. I did not know what the data plate was before I purchased my 57. I look at cars for sale now and always want to see the data plate. You can purchase the original factory invoice for $50 from the American Road Thunderbird Club. CTCI has the details. Hope this helps.

  3. If the vin number matches the stamping on the right front frame member your tag is most likely correct. Remember that these cars are 60 years old and may have gone through numerous restorations. Changing interior/exterior is not a crime and is done routinely on these cars. Enjoy it as it is, or change to what your like. Just enjoy the car. Join CTCI and you will find a world of information and people that can help you along the process. Good value for $37.50 a year!

  15. a PO of my car had a hard on for BLUE and did a full blown change over to blue over blue. Changed color of car, painted it corrected, no "old" colors evident, nothing. Changed seat material, door panels, all of it. Looks like it was done in the 80's and still looks good but not new anymore.
