The 1957 Ford Fairlane was a distinctive model year, and this example showcases that with a highly preserved appearance that also gives this two-tone V8 classic a great story to tell.
As you look around the whole car you are going to see a ton of originality. That's because this car has history. The gentleman who purchased this Fairlane new passed in 1964, and his sister kept the car until her passing in 2000. This created a family legacy for over four decades, and that set the stage to continue the car's preservation. The correct Doeskin Tan and Colonial White package is suspected to be the factory application. And it has the right aged personality for people to suspect it the originality from the beginning. So it's easy to tell this car's unique story. There's also a wonderful completeness to this car. The wraparound bumpers are mirror-like; the body panels have a quality fit; and the full trim is bright as it distinctively separates the two-tone. It really gets the classic cruiser look correct, right down to the wheel covers with white accents that coordinate with whitewall tires.
Inside is more authenticity. There have been some of the right updates, but nothing breaks the spell that makes you feel like you're in a true 1950s cruiser. Even the AM radio is still working! The seats are finished in a nice color to coordinate with the exterior tan. The cloth inserts have a cool pattern that also coordinates with the brown on the door panels, carpeting, and dash. The full trim package has that right look of age for originality, and so it gives you a nostalgic feeling, right down to the Ford family crest in the middle of the steering wheel.
Underneath the sporty forward-latch hood is the 292 cubic-inch V8. These C-code motors were known as Thunderbird V8s, and so it earns the extra flair on the valve covers. And with the history on this car, the consignor states that this is the original block. The car was given about an $8k refresh around the time when it left the original family, and today that means a classic Ford that still know how to hit the boulevard. You control the V8 with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission for a nice vintage feel, and the glasspack-style dual exhaust gives that extra hint of tone that makes these quite fun.
