Description for Ford Fairlane 1957


Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1957 Ford Ranch Wagon Resto Mod.

Rarity

It’s rare just to see a 57 Ranch Wagon at all, even if you’re searching. And sure, a Nomad is super cool but you’ll find rows of them at a good sized show. 1957 was the introductory year for the Ranch Wagon and the only year of this body style with single headlights. Along with most cars, the 58’s got fat. You say you want something different? Yep, your buddies won’t have one like this that’s for sure. Most people, even old guys (like us) pause for a minute trying to figure out what She is.

Inspection

Please come inspect this great 57 Ranch Wagon before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 61 year old used car. It will need periodic attention just as any classic automobile does. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car so please move on to something new. Like a Prius.
