57 t bird skirts

Recommended Posts

Those are 1955/56 Thunderbird fender skirts (factory called them fender shields). The way you can tell is that the attaching levers are longer on the 1957 skirts, they have a bend in them to clear the wider 7.50-14" wheels, and there is also a notched area on the skirt inner lip to also clear the tire. The 55-56 T-Birds came standard with 15" wheel, so not compensations were required on the skirt.

It is possible to use these skirts on a 57 but the tire clearance is reduced and will likely result in the tire rubbing the skirts.
