'57T-Bird wh 78

Description

The '57 T-Bird first debuted in 1978 in a red, white, and blue patriotic paint scheme.  It was released later in that same year in yellow.

It was originally introduced with a porthole window, just like on the real car, but when manufacturing was moved to Malaysia, the porthole was omitted to save cost. Finding the yellow '57 T-Bird with no porthole window is extremely rare, only 3 are known to exist.

This car was also featured in the T-Bird Tossup track set. One set with the white 1978 '57 T-Bird on the box and also a box with the car pictured in Yellow (BW).
