With its exceptional and unequaled use of stainless steel and
chrome accents, folding & retracting hardtop roof, its embodiment
of the "Long and Low" style of the time, and its fusion of
locomotive & aviation design cues-the Ford Fairlane 500 is
certainly among the last great contributions to the legacy of Art
Deco inspired automotive styling produced in the United States.

It was frame-on restored with exceptional results! The original
condition of the undercarriage and chassis visually support this
car spent little to no time in inclement weather conditions. All
body panels show clear spot welds, factory seams, with wonderful
body gaps & fitment. New base coat/clear coat exterior paint
remains visually stunning, especially with the re-plated chrome and
polished bright work! The same can be said on the interior. The
beautifully painted dash, clear functional gauges, rebuilt original
AM radio with new speaker, all new seating upholstery & carpet,
door panels, and more! The under hood presentation doesn't
disappoint either. Small, factory details to include FOMOCO part
stickers, tags, and original components should impress at any car
show. And it remains one of the most drivable examples available
anywhere at any price.
Kept by meticulous owners in the past, this Fairlane 500 has
survived the test of time in stunning fashion! Do not delay, this
car will move fast! Included with the sale of this Fairlane 500
Retractable will be an original owner's manual and 1958 Service
