1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD RAFFLE FOR A CAUSE
It's a personal luxury car. It's an automobile legend. The T-Bird's sleek steel body features sculptured fins, a long hood and rear portals that resemble the eyes of an eagle.
Powered by a 312 CID V8, the Little Bird boasts twin Holley 4-barrel carbs. Power steering, brakes, windows and seat are some of the reasons Ford labeled the Thunderbird a “personal luxury car.” Restored to its original creamy Wimbledon white color, the Thunderbird hard top has a removable roof that reveals a factory-correct new interior. The legendary two-seater was made popular by Suzanne Somers who drove a Little Bird in the movie, American Graffiti.
The nature of V8s for Vocations raffles is to fund the education of future priests of the Diocese of Gallup, which is otherwise underfunded. The Diocese is the poorest in the United States, serving predominantly Native American and Hispanic peoples from across Arizona and New Mexico.
