Ford Fairlane 500 Convertible, for sale in Arlington, Texas, for $57,900.
1957 Ford Fairlane 500
This beautiful 57 Ford Fairlane 500 has to be one of the nicest out there. There is nothing more classic looking than the clean trim and rear fins on these cars and they continue to only grow in popularity. One look at the rear and you can definitely see similarities between them and the Thunderbirds also put out by Ford at that time. All of the cars of this era have a great look but if you are looking for an investment opportunity you have to go with the convertible. These always tend to be at the top of the list when it comes to rare body styles to own. The car is coated in a two tone Black and Yellow which looks great paired with the Black cloth top. This classic was very well restored and continues to get a ton of attention wherever it goes. It is in very clean condition with a beautiful finish. The professional restoration was completed by Amos Minters restorations who specializes in 55-57 Fords. If you have someone like that working on the car you know it was done right. This isn't a shop that may restore a 32 Ford one day and Camaro the next. They are dedicated to a niche of cars insuring they know exactly how to make them right. You won't find any better quality than that! The correct style stainless trim with gold insert runs the length of the side and along with the chrome bumpers, etc shine like new. Fender skirts are in place in the rear and look perfect on a car like this. It has a very solid stance and cruises through town on a great looking set of original style wheels and hubcaps with wide white wall tires.
The 312 V8 under the hood has a vintage look to it which is what you want in this type of nostalgic classic. Custom touches with crazy chrome looks good on certain cars but you will be amazed at how much attention a solid, clean, vintage motor gets. It starts up very smoothly and has no issues. To avoid any heating concerns an auxiliary electric fan was installed and keeps the car running cool at all times. Behind it is a fully automatic transmission that shifts smoothly with no problems. A power steering system is in place and makes driving the car a breeze. You are going to LOVE cruising around in this car!
The interior of the car is complete in a two tone Black and White that looks great and is in great condition. Seatbelts have been added which is a great safety feature that is sometime forgotten when building these classics. The dash has an all original look with the correct style knobs, switches, gauges, and radio. The underdash AC unit fits nicely in place and blows cold with no problems. The power convertible top operates just as it should and the car comes with a nice convertible top boot. The trunk of the car is very nicely finished out and houses the 10 CD disc changer.
Get this car and you will certainly not regret it. It is the type of investment where you just can't lose!
