STK 2072 1957 Ford Fairlane Everything was 'cool' in 1957. Kookie
was driving a '23 T on the Sunset Strip and cars from the Big Three
were growing fins. Back in the late '30s all Detroit 'square' cars
received rounded corners. For the next 20 years, they all looked
pretty much the same. Then came the mid-fifties and style became
King - every year, a brand new look. The style of the 1957 Ford
Fairlane was a radical departure from earlier models. They were
longer, lower, wider and sported rear fins - albeit not as large as
their counterparts down the street. It was, and still is, a
beautiful car. This Fairlane 500 two-door post is a great example
of 1957 performance and style. It is powered by a numbers-matching
'big-block' 312 cid Thunderbird V8. A two-speed Ford-O-Matic
transmission drives a stock rear differential. The exterior has had
a total re-spray of 2-tone red/white and looks great. Kelsey Hayes
wire-wheels, wide-whites and fender skirts provide nice accents.
Both front and rear clips have received some minor customization.
The four-headlight set-up is somewhat unusual. It is said that Ford
produced 8 cars with those fenders. ..don't know?.. It certainly
does not appear to be an after-market conversion set-up. The grill
and bumpers are also different from stock. The interior is in
overall very good condition. Seats have been reupholstered in
red/white vinyl. All of the individual components are very sharp,
including the dashboard, headliner, carpeting and door panels.
Comfort and safety options include factory A/C, AM/FM, power
steering and power trunk. This Fairlane needs a new Blue Oval fan
to pamper it - one who will appreciate the beautiful style of this
full size classic.Call 800-650-1055 or visit
