Description for Ford Fairlane 1957

Take some time to appreciate this 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner. With its nicely restored presentation inside and out (just look at the undercarriage!), cold air conditioning, and plenty of V8 power, it's exactly the kind of classic for someone who doesn't know the meaning of compromise.
The 1957 Ford were unique from every angle, and that's why we desire them so much today. The headlight design was exclusive to this year, and it looks frenched right from the factory. The Fairlane 500's sweeping side trim had one of its most graceful dips thanks to the streak of premium gold built right in. And the extra long tailfin that started at the door handle gave these full-size cars some Thunderbird flair a feeling that was continued with the afterburner taillights. So with all this going for it, you really want a superior example to see all these details correctly, and that's what makes this Sunliner so appealing. There was a ton invested in the restoration to make you want to show it off. It's factory-correct Flame Red paint has been given a professional respray, and so this sunshine-friendly droptop has a terrific clearcoat shine every time the light hits it. And this butter smooth appearance is not just because the paint is good, but also straight sheetmetal gives it the right canvas. The brightwork needs to be up to the same superior level, and so there was a solid investment in the big chrome bumpers, Thunderbird-style wire wheel covers, and all that intricate trim. And not only do we love whitewall tires, but also when the pristine white folding roof is in place, it gives this classic a two-tone style appearance.
While this one looks great with the top up, it gets even better with the flip of a switch. The power folding roof goes down to reveal a full red and white interior. It looks like there was a small fortune spent on just getting the two-tone seats this complete and comfortable. But our favorite part has to be the door panels. They have a great design that uses the white to mimic the trim on the outside. Plus, the white portion seamlessly flows onto the dash to frame the gauges, heat/defrost controls, and original AM radio that's still on display. And because this package is factory-correct, everything follows the color scheme from the seatbelts to the artful steering wheel. The result is a droptop that looks both premium and well-coordinated inside and out. And more than just a looker, this is a boulevard cruiser. So you can stay comfortable even in the summer season thanks to cold air conditioning.
This is a D-code convertible, which means it came with the optional "Thunderbird Special" 312 cubic-inch V8. It looks thoroughly correct with the bold red block, large air topper, and valve covers that proudly announce this powerful option. And in fact, the tidy presonation of the engine bay will get people talking all on its own. It even inhales correctly through a Holley four-barrel carburetor. The V8 fires up nicely, and the glasspack-style dual exhaust gives it a nice dignified sound. But don't just listen to this; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the level of nut-and-bolt detail that really went into this restoration. As a true cruising convertible, the power steering and Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission makes driving effortless. So there's nothing stopping you from going out and showing this one off everywhere.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the cut-above classic that's ready to be back on the streets tomorrow. But the only way you can do that is if you call today!
