Description for Ford Fairlane 1957

The 1957 Fords were an exceptionally distinctive year with exclusive styling touches. So when you can find a Fairlane 500 two-door that looks classic on the outside, but has a modern Mustang fuel-injected heart on the inside, then you know you've found a distinctive classic that's great for all occasions. This is the perfect coupe to draw everyone in at the car show. It looks pretty stock at a first glance, and this is arguably one of the... sleekest classic Ford styles around. It was the debut of big tailfins, and the single headlight design, exclusive to the '57s, has an almost frenched look. The impressiveness continues with the paint. The two-tone Flame Red and Colonial White is the factory-correct color combo updated for modern times. Workmanship is quite good with the stainless trim along the separation line remaining complete. This full-length silver and gold streak needs truly straight sheetmetal for it to make this kind of stellar impression over the whole body. The shining chrome bumpers and afterburner-style taillights are pure '50s cool, but the modern Cobra-style wheels hint at the upgrades within. Inside, this one completely shows off its custom side. The tan leather bucket seats are borrowed from a Lincoln Mark VIII. So they power adjust to your ideal position and have plenty of bolstering to be all-day comfortable. The tan coordinates with the custom center console, and door panels as it merges with the exterior-matching red to deliver a thoughtful and uniform total package. This is the kind of car that family and friends will want to go for a ride, and so you'll keep them happy with nice upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning. But even when just going solo, you're going to love this custom Ford. The Mustang-style steering wheel and full gauge panel with large speedo and tach are more hints at a great upgrade in the engine bay. Lift the sporty forward-tilting hood to give everyone a big surprise. This is the modern 4.6-liter V8 directly out of a 2001 Mustang GT. This fuel-injected powerhouse provides the right kind of upgrade for added power and a reliable delivery. And it wasn't just the motor that was expertly fitted in this Fairlane. They also borrowed the Mustang GT's four-speed automatic transmission to provide powerful kick-downs and comfortable overdrive cruising. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll also spot the Mustang's front suspension that delivers a more comfortable and confident ride. Plus, there are other nice upgrades like the transmission mount brace and new bushings all around. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the grip of modern performance tires, and you see how this upgraded classic knows how to take you near or far. This is the kind of thorough custom build we all want to do, but this one already has all the hard stuff expertly done. So picking this up this fuel-injected Fairlane means skipping ahead to the fun of driving and showing. Call today!!!
