Vintage Motorcars is proud to present this stunning 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria featured in the original colors of Inca Gold / Colonial White over Raven Vinyl and Gold Ripple-Wave fabric.
I used the word 'stunning' above, because that is truly the proper adjective to describe this car. That particular word perfectly describes the exterior and interior conditions as well as the way this car drives down the road. You simply don't find '57 Fords in this condition, because the parts are not as plentiful as their Chevy counterparts. Someone clearly sunk a ton of money into this car as a labor of love.
The laser-straight exterior sheet metal is just that…. Laser-straight. The long sweeping lines of this car are just as beautiful as they were in 1957 free of ripples or waves. The correct Inca Gold / Colonial White paint was laid by nothing short of an artist, and clearly a better quality than what came out of the factory. You could look for hours and not find a flaw in the base coat / clear coat. Of course; when you have sheet metal and paint of this high of caliber… you better follow it up with clean and clear stainless and chrome, and boy does this car deliver! The stainless is completely free of pitting, and probably shows less miniscule dings than what it had on the showroom floor. The chrome shines beautifully and is clear enough to use as a mirror for your morning shave!
The interior condition backs up the exterior with ease. The correct upholstery is in near perfect condition with no signs of wear, and a complete attention to detail during the restoration. From the headliner to the carpet; this interior is spotless. The interior features are all in working order. All the gauges, gauge lights, radio, heater and dome light are in perfect working order.
The highly desirable 312 V8 engine was rebuilt in 2017, and performs flawlessly. Paired to the famous Fordomatic automatic transmission; this is an effortless car to navigate down the road. Of course the top of the line Fairlane features power steering and power brakes to help the driver enjoy the drive as well.
