7.    The all steel body is in good condition, a couple of rusted areas;
8.    The re-upholstered interior needs some help, just needs to be refitted, no tears, the headliner looks good.

1957 FORD CUSTOM 300

To be helpful to inquiries, I decided to compile the additional information to hopefully answer more of the general questions. I am interested in selling so I am looking forward to offers.

The Vehicle Description is all correct based on what I know of the 1957 Ford Custom 300.It starts good, runs good and brakes good; and as you can see from the pictures it can look good. The prior owner had the 57 for over 55 years before selling it to me.

The reason I decided to sell it, is that I do have 7 cars: 3 family cars and 4 oldies. Our plans of building the big garage are not materializing, so my drive way is crowded. Age is creeping up on me with some physical health issues.
