STK 2124 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Convertible This 1958 Fairlane 500 is a beautiful example of the glory years for the American convertible. It is long, low, roomy and even sports a continental tire kit. Any model of the 1958 Ford line, let alone a convertible, is quite rare. One thing that makes this car very special is the fact that it is 'complete'. Finding replacement body/interior parts for models the late '50's Fords can be difficult as there are just not a lot of them out there. However, this Fairlane 500 is superb and has no such needs. It is original except for a repaint in 2009 (factory colors of Turquoise and White) and a new white top that is power operated. White walls are mounted on steel wheels with factory correct hubcaps. The interior is original and in excellent condition. This Fairlane is powered by the optional 352ci Interceptor V8 rated at 300hp with 10.2:1 compression and Holley 4V carburation. To the best of our knowledge, the motor has never required a rebuild. This was the engine that powered the '58 Thunderbird and the largest engine available in the Fairlane 500 line-up. A 3-speed manual gearbox with stout clutch supplies torque to a 9 Ford differential with factory 3.56:1 gearing. Braking comes from huge 11 drums. This original Fairlane 500 is ready for a new home.
