'57T-Bird wh 78

Description

The '57 T-Bird first debuted in 1978 as part of the Flying Colors series in a red, white, and blue patriotic paint scheme. It was originally introduced with a porthole window in the hardtop, to replicate the option on the real car, but it was soon omitted to save cost. The porthole was re-introduced many years later.

This car was also featured in the T-Bird Tossup track set. The set came with either the white or yellow car.
