This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner is a fantastically coordinated
total package inside and out that keeps all the right vintage
pieces. And that's exactly what you want when shopping for a cool
cruising V8 droptop classic.
The appeal of this convertible is as clear as black and white -
literally. While this was born a desirable black car, it was
changed to a two tone later in life. That means the style appeal of
a tuxedo and an extra dose of sunshine-friendly gloss. Plus, like
the best formalwear, this Sunliner has all the best accessories.
The correct hood ornament, extra-wide grille, and wraparound chrome
bumpers are like the cufflinks and Rolex watch with this tuxedo.
And we especially love how the sweeping side trim with gold insert
gives a decisive dividing line between the two colors. Even the
wheels look great as the whitewalls, black steelies, and chrome &
white covers contribute to this fully coordinated package.
The black convertible top has the crisp look of a recent
investment, so it looks great when in place. But with the flip of a
switch, it powers down to reveal even more of the two-tone you'll
love. While the interior was born with a black and white
presentation, you do see some more recent investments in places
like the seats. Just like the exterior, the two colors are expertly
blended, and supplemented by plenty of bright trim. And because all
the best components have the look of originality, you're going to
love showing this off to other enthusiasts. But more than just a
car to look at, this is meant to share the open road with family
and friends, too. That's the appeal of owning a premium full-size
Tilt the hood forward to show off the correct-style D-code 312
cubic-inch V8. It was known as the "Thunderbird Special" in '57,
and so those valve covers have been earned. It looks correct and
distinct with the bold red block, large air topper, and even the
washer bag. This one fires up readily, like a well-maintained
classic should. And the Holley four-barrel carburetor gives the V8
proper power as well as help give the dual exhaust a nice tone.
Plus, the two-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and
modern tires all come together for a great classic cruising
This is a nicely cared for classic, and there are even fender
skirts and a car cover that come with the sale. This Ford looks
like formalwear, and so you need to take it for a night on the
town. Call today!!!
