1957 Ford Fairlane 500
The 1957 Ford was very successful, being the best selling car in America that year, overtaking arch rival Chevrolet for the first time since 1935! Certainly one of the best looking cars of the mid-1950s and always popular with the hot rod crowd back then with the big 312 Thunderbird engine option. This car has all of the classic styling of the 1950s with lots of chrome, trim, a dash that looks like it could belong in an airplane, and of course those amazing tail fins! What a great time period for automobiles!
Here we have a beautiful Fairlane 500 that has been well loved by its past owners. It has been serviced well through the years and has never needed a full restoration, however, some things have been done and improved through the years. The next owner could take it to the level or just simply enjoy it how it is! This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events, local car shows, or just own/drive for fun. This car will be a treasure for your family to own for years to come and a great investment too. Fuzzy dice included of course!
