What a nice '57 Ford Fairlane 500! Nicely restored, and in exceptional condition, this Fairlane has been very well cared for, and it shows.
Repainted in it's original, very unique color combo, and nicely contrasting original color scheme interior, this is a car you just can't miss going down the road. Very clean, nice original dash with properly functioning gauges, and even the original tube radio works!
The paint shows very nicely in smooth base/clear, and with the sedan post is factory finished in bright work on purpose to give the illusion of a hardtop.
The original Thunderbird 312 starts easily every time, and was completely rebuilt, so you have excellent reliability, the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears, and the Fairlane has a nice comfortable, smooth ride.
The undercarriage, although not detailed, but original, is solid, and clean with no rust issues.
The trunk compartment is solid with original paint on the floor, and the jack and spare are present in the correct location.
Some nice restoration documentation accompanies the car, and indicates just how well cared for this Fairlane is. Nice chrome and bright work with the factory gold appointments down both sides of the car to separate the body colors, this is a very classy looking Fairlane.
Nice Fairlanes like this one don't become available as often as we would like, so here's an excellent opportunity to own a nice one!
