This 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria is upgraded with a few mild customizations that make this 58 Ford a fantastic 50s cruiser. 1958 was a down year across the American automotive industry, due in part to an economic recession and the publics apprehension to buy new cars at a time of such uncertainty. When the 1958 Ford models debuted to the public on November 7, 1957, the big story was the introduction of the new 4-seater Thunderbird but the passenger cars underwent a substantial redesign as well. With new Safety-Twin dual headlights, a new faux Thunderbird-esque hood scoop, a new honeycomb grille design, anodized gold beltline side trim, and a new-look taillight setup, the 58 Fords had a look unlike anything available from FoMoCo in the previous model years. The Fairlane 500 was the top-of-the-line passenger car model for Ford in 1958 and sat atop a 118 inch wheelbase. Unlike the Hide-Away Hardtop Retractable, the roof line on the 2-Door hardtop Victoria featured a smooth swept-back line whereas the Retractable was more squared off. This particular 1958 Fairlane 500 comes to us from a collector who took exceptionally good care of the car while under their ownership and previously it spent nearly 20 years in Arkansas. A later model 390 Cubic Inch V8 engine paired with a Holley single 4 barrel carburetor provides plenty of power to this 58 Ford. The NOM 390 V8 is backed by a C6 automatic transmission that makes it easy for anybody to take the 1958 Fairlane 500 for a spin around the block. Exhaust exits the updated 390 V8 via a dual exhaust setup that give this Ford Club Victoria a great throaty sound. This 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 sports several fantastic options!
