The 1957 model year retained the single-headlight front end like their predecessors, but saw the birth of unmistakable long flanks and tailfins, both of which are evident from a football field away on this top-line Fairlane 500. The two-tone green and colonial white paint job shimmers, as the eye tries to determine if you're looking at a 59 year old car or a retro piece of modern art. Equipped with a 351 Cleveland V8 engine, an automatic transmission, 9" Ford rear end, power steering, new front and rear suspension, 4-Wheel WilWood Power Disc Brakes, stainless steel exhaust, Magnaflow Mufflers, and a new gas tank and fuel lines, this retro beast has looks to kill and a powertrain to match. This cruiser may look polite, but look away or write it off, and it will sneak up on you before you know what hit you. Cruise on down to our Milwaukee Showroom to take a trip back in time by way of this 1957 Ford Victoria Fairline 500. Crank some Elvis, crack a beer and take a look at this beauty in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (262)-891-4253 or email us at Milwaukee@gatewayclassiccars.com.
