Classic Car Overview
1957 Ford Fairlane $22,995
This sleek black look was made to grab attention. The more modern clearcoat shine makes a great first impression, which is good because the 57 Ford is a car that was made to be seen. This was the only year for the single headlight design with the restyled body, and its unique appearance gave these coupes a daring face. But whats really impressive is that all the intricate pieces that make this car a standout are complete. The 57 redesign brought the first true tailfin, which is emphasized further thanks to the rear fender skirts and the Fairlanes exclusive rear trim line. A full-width grille, mirror-like wraparound chrome bumpers, and jet-inspire taillights complete this iconic coupe. It even feels correct right down to the factory-style hubcaps. Plus those whitewall tires and red wheels are a great hint at what awaits you inside.
The pillarless Club Victoria hardtop body means everyone gets a terrific view of the two-tone interior. The sleek white on the seats give way to the ribbed red inserts for a look thats both correct and appears custom. The way the colors coordinate on the carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dash gives you a uniform presentation that youll be proud to show off. The view from behind the wheel is pure 1950s cool. Fords arching instrument panel is a great-looking piece of industrial design, complete with plenty of bright trim to accentuate the dash. And the whole presentation looks period-correct right down to the heat/defrost sliders. But this is a true cruising machine, and so you also have a custom center console that houses nice upgrades like a cup holder and an AM/FM/cassette stereo.
Underneath the sporty clamshell hood is the correct D-code 312 cubic-inch V8. Topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, it delivers smooth performance and plenty of torque to move the big coupe without working very hard. It has that great period-correct appearance with the large air topper and the correct Thunderbird Special valve covers. But you might also notice the upgrade to the aluminum radiator. Thats part of why this is such a nice driving package. Plus, three-speed manual transmission is great for making the most out of the large V8, but when its time to settle in for the long haul, theres also overdrive. Add in a supple ride and a more modern tread on those whitewalls, and this is a nice all-around cruising classic.
This one has the right look, power, and features to be your all-time favorite. Thats why you know you have to act fast to take it home. Call today!!!
