Classic Car Overview

This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner represents one of the most daring times in Ford history where the engineers got to make something amazing, and the designers got to wrap it in something beautiful. This car is less than a dozen miles from its frame-off restoration, and so as you look at all the pictures and info, you can tell its truly amongst the best of the best. Even without its attention-grabbing roof, this coupe/convertible is an attractive classic. It starts with a stunning two-tone blue paint. The advantage of a modern professional application with a deep clearcoat is that you get a shine that rivals chrome. Thats important on a 50s classic like this because theres a ton of brightwork, too. It looks particularly nice on this Skyliner because the main pieces, including the bumpers, bezels, and trim moldings all received proper attention and investment during the restoration. So what youre left with is an amazing luster that has a uniform gloss across both the chrome and paint... so you know this one is ready to take home some awards! It all ends in a tailfin rear end that looks inspired by the original Thunderbird, and theres a continental kit for that extra-long touch of class. Of course the retractable hard top roof is the real reason why this is such a valuable classic. It was the engineering sensation of its time, as multiple motors make it look like the trunk is swallowing the roof whole. Having the roof stowed not only is a cool process, but it also gives everyone a look at the amazing interior. The sea of blue returns, and its joined by pristine white accents. So you might have only thought the whitewall tires were a nice period-correct piece, but now you know they also help bring together the full interior/exterior colors! With such a thoughtfully well-coordinated package the interior should be worthy of awards all on its own. And because the restored upholstery is protected by plastic, this sharp look will remain for many more years. The door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash also all have the unmistakable feeling of a thoughtful care. When you slip behind the factory wheel and stare at the horizon-like speedometer, you get a sensation that lets you know this is truly superior classic motoring. Underneath the sporty forward-tilt hood is a time capsule of an engine bay. The correct D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 looks fresh from the factory. They even did reproduction assembly line marking on the glossy inner walls. In fact, this is an era-correct block with a Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. So thats just another thoughtful set of details that this fresh build loves to deliver. The big V8 has plenty of torque to makes sure you confidently pull away from every stoplight. Plus, the two-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and the Fairlanes legendary soft suspension all come together for a great classic cruising package. This is the kind of restoration that will have you showing off every inch of the car (have you seen the ultra-clean undercharge photos yet?) So if you were looking for a rare classic that looks like it has been sealed away in a time capsule for 60+ years, then you need to get your hands on this freshly done Skyliner. Call today!!!
