  1. Beautiful car! Looks expensive but not gaudy like some of the cars from the late 1950's.
  2. QT sells ethanol free gasoline in my area, but it is only 87 octane. I use their 93 octane premium and add to it "Carb Defender" by Driven Racing Oil to protect against the corrosive properties of ethanol. In addition, I use "NO-Rosion Fuel System Octane Booster" to increase the octane and protect the non-hardened valve seats in my '56 Thunderbird. It is a great substitute for the lead that was once in gas. I have been using both products for several years with no problems.
  3. Do as Paul suggests---just remember you are driving 50's technology. My '56 Thunderbird does not handle anything like a modern car. Driving a vintage car makes you realize how far automotive technology has advanced in 63 years. Enjoy your '57 Thunderbird!
  4. To answer your original question--I used CALYX Manifold Dressing on the manifolds of my 1956 Thunderbird. I purchased a container from NPD, in preparation for an AACA Meet. It works as advertised, if the application instructions are followed. I have had it on my manifolds since 2015, and they still look great.
