For Sale: 1957 Ford Fairlane in Newfield, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Convertible. Over fifty years ago, in the mid-model year 1957, Ford introduced the first-ever large-scale production of a hardtop convertible, the Fairlane 500 Skyliner. The brainchild of Ford engineer Gil Spears, the concept was originally intended for the 1956 Lincoln Continental, but the skyrocketing retail on the Continental prohibited adding the retractable hardtop feature, so the idea was picked up by the Ford division instead. In 1957, Ford was on a roll, finally beating Chevrolet in sales for the first time in decades by a substantial 10 percent margin, so there was money flowing for product development. The Skyliner contributed to that landmark success, not only by garnering 20,766 sales but also by drawing large crowds into the Ford showrooms to witness this engineering marvel in action. Even then-President Dwight D. Eisenhower had to have a sleek, modern Skyliner in his garage. Not only was the styling exciting, but the promise of new "Dream-car" technology pushed Ford to new sales heights.
