It has a patent leather top! Sounds pretty deluxe. I love the song "Something Stupid" that she sang with her father. Very neat that her car ended up in Green Valley.

Looks like it came to AZ in 2013 via Barrett-Jackson.

Nice ride. I'm partial to the opera window top models. Did they only do that in '57 do you know?

Got the following info from: Classic T-Bird Differences

Note on Portholes:
~All hardtops on the 55 thru 57 models are removeable hard tops.
~No '55 came stock from the factory with the portholes in the hardtops.
~Portholes were added to the hardtops with the production of the 1956 models. Many hardtops for '55s were converted to porthole tops.
~The stock '55 hardtop had a Ford Crest emblem on both sides.
~A non-porthole '56 top had no emblems placed on the hardtop.
~The 1957 T-bird hardtop was also available with or without portholes. The '57 non-porthole hardtop had the new Thunderbird emblem in a small disk; the same style emblem that is on the steering wheel of the '57.

Very cool! My uncle restored a 1956 T Bird that I got to drive once in a while.
