1957 Ford Fairlane 500 'Looks like a million ... makes you feel
like a million!' The 1957 Ford was very successful, being the best
selling car in America that year, overtaking arch rival Chevrolet
for the first time since 1935! Certainly one of the best looking
cars of the mid-1950s and always popular with the hot rod crowd
back then with the big 312 Thunderbird engine option. This car has
all of the classic styling of the 1950s with lots of chrome, trim,
a dash that looks like it could belong in an airplane, and of
course those amazing tail fins! What a great time period for
automobiles! Here we have a beautiful Fairlane 500 that has been
well loved by its past owners. It has been serviced well through
the years and has never needed a full restoration, however, some
things have been done and improved through the years. The next
owner could take it to the level or just simply enjoy it how it is!
This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events,
local car shows, or just own/drive for fun. This car will be a
treasure for your family to own for years to come and a great
investment too. Features: � Original sticker price: $2,380.00 �
