The big news for 1957 was introduction of the first convertible hardtop in the world. A great idea that later proved to be very complicated and somewhat trouble prone. 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. It differed from other Ford Fairlanes with its standard V8 and a relocated gas tank behind the back seat, as well as leaving little luggage space when the top was down.
Production Years: 1957 - 1959
