1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner convertible
This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner convertible was reportedly purchased by the previous owner's uncle in the early 1960s, and it spent time in California prior to its acquisition by the previous owner in 2005. Refinished in white and orange over a two-tone interior some time prior to the previous owners acquisition. The car was originally finished in Inca Gold and Colonial White. The C-code 292ci V8 is equipped with a single carburetor and Thunderbird-branded valve covers. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission and a 3.56:1 rear axle.. Equipment includes a power-retractable "Hide-Away Hardtop" that works great. fender-mounted side mirrors, air conditioning. I think it'll work I think it just needs charging which we will do it when we get it serviced and safety checked. The power-retractable "Hide-Away Hardtop" was introduced in 1957 and was available for three model years. The cabin is trimmed in black and white vinyl with color-coordinated door panels. Lap belts are fitted for front and rear occupants. We just had it all serviced and safety checked and it's ready to go except for looking to get the air charged. Andrew said it was really comfortable to drive and it just runs down the road just fine as the original stock radio that does not work. The heater works. This is not a show car, but it shows well. The carpets are a little weak and some of the trim could be better but overall I think you'll enjoy this car a lot.
