1957 Ford Fairlane 500
Fully Restored 2008-2011
312 Thunderbird V-8
Stk. 2126 1957 Ford Fairlane 500
When Ford introduced the 1957 models, their marketing slogan was "A New Kind of Ford for '57...with the Mark of Tomorrow." These Fords were a radical departure from earlier designs - longer, wider and much more stylish than any previous model. This fully restored '57 Fairlane 500 Club Sedan is a beautiful example of that concept. The professional restoration (2008-2011) is fully documented with receipts and photos of the entire process. Judging by the early photos, the car that rolled into the restoration shop was nice even before work began, but the end result is stunning. All aspects of the body are straight and true. The Raven Black paint looks better than any factory paint job. All chrome is either new or re-chromed original. The wheels are 14' x 5 Thunderbird Chrome Wire Wheels (w/ spinners) supplied by Coker Tires. They mount P205/75R14 WW Vintage radials, also supplied by Coker Tire. The wheel/tire package cost more than this new Fairlane 500 did in 1957. The interior has been completely restored to factory appearance with 'Gold Basket Weave and Black Sculptured Fabric' and air conditioning has been added. We have receipts for all of the work done to the 312ci Thunderbird V8. Professional machine work was performed on the block with a .030 overbore, new cam, bearings, pistons, polished crank and headwork. The carburetor is the Ford/Autolite/Holley 4100 4V. This motor sounds great and is probably pushing out more than the original 245bhp. Likewise, the two-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission and stock differential were completely rebuilt, as were the power steering components and all elements of the suspension. This vintage Ford has been reborn. If you are looking for a classic 'New Kind of Ford?.', inspect this Fairlane 500 and take the time to review the documentation and restoration photos provided. It is a great investment. Call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com for additional information. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS-IS".
