1957 Ford Fairlane
The newly designed 1957 Ford Fairlane featured a more longer, lower and wider design.

1957 Ford Fairlane

In 1957 the Ford Fairlane was completely restyled with a longer, lower and wider design. The ‘57 Fairlanes touted bigger, heavier new bodies with a lower-profile. The big news was the famous introduction of the new Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner which featured the world's first production retractable hardtop convertible. With a price tag of more than $400 above the convertible Sunliner. Ford stylists designed the roof to be shorter than on other models and its front section was hinged to fold for more compact storage in the larger trunk area. Coupled with a standard V8 and a relocated gas tank (behind the back seat instead of under the trunk floor), and little luggage space when the top was down, the new retractable was a big hit.
