For Sale: 1957 Ford Fairlane in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The 1957 Fords were an exceptionally distinctive year with exclusive styling touches. So it's great to see this Fairlane 500 hardtop looking so classic on the outside. But beneath the skin is a restomod with an air ride suspension, loaded A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and a multi-valve fuel-injected V8 that makes some Mustangs jealous.


This is the perfect coupe to draw everyone in at the car show. It looks pretty stock at a first glance, and this is arguably one of the sleekest classic Ford styles around. It was the debut of big tailfins. Plus, the single headlight design used in '57 has an almost frenched look. The impressiveness continues with the paint. The two-tone red and white is an era-correct color combo that has the good look of a quality application. The silver and gold streak down the side is part of what made these Ford look so premium, and at the same time, it showcases the straightness of the sheet metal. And you'll love all the other defining features, like the pillarless hardtop profile, dual front spotlights, rear fender skirts, and bright chrome bumpers. And while the whitewall tires add to the vintage style, the upgraded Boyd Coddington wheels start to hint at the upgrades within.


The interior starts to give more clues about the full upgraded nature of this one just because of all the amenities it offers. This includes cold-blowing air conditioning, power front windows, and air ride controls. But this one never likes to be too obvious about the upgrades. For example, the classic AM radio is on display, but you use a remote to access the AM/FM stereo with CD changer. And while the seats have a classic look, the front was built for exceptional comfort. That's why you have individual power adjustments, a fold-down armrest, and even heated seats. Oh yes, this is made to be a comfortable cruiser. That's why your wood-rimmed Grant sports steering wheel is also on a tilt column.


Lift the sporty forward-tilting hood to give everyone a big surprise. This is Ford's 4.6-liter V8 Modular V8. In fact, it's the ultra-desirable DOHC 32-valve version that was reserved for specialty cars like the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. This fuel-injected powerhouse provides the right kind of upgrade for added power and reliable delivery. And it wasn't just the motor that was expertly fitted in this Fairlane. They also borrowed the four-speed automatic transmission to provide powerful kick-downs and comfortable overdrive cruising. So it feels like a terrific cruiser-ready package for trips near or far. That's why you also have power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes. And everywhere you arrive, you'll love dialing in the ideal stance from the adjustable air ride suspension.


Complete with a restoration photo book, this is the kind of thorough custom build we all want to do, but this one already has all the hard stuff expertly done. So picking up this fuel-injected Fairlane means skipping ahead to the fun of driving and showing. Call today!!!
