For Sale: 1957 Ford Fairlane in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 droptop classic.


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 package.


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!!!
