Vehicle design changed quite a bit moving into the 60s but prior to that long sleek vehicles with lots of chrome and those classic fins were the thing to have. For the 1957 Fords there were many trim levels to choose from starting with the custom and working your way up to the top of the line Fairlane 500 like you see here. This cool classic has a great look and runs well. It is a survivor quality car and really looks cool rolling down the road. The body is solid with no rust spots or signs of previous damage. It is painted in Cumberland Green and White color combo that suits it well and is the factory colors. These cars had a ton of bright work and all of the original style chrome and stainless trim is cleanly mounted in place. The glass is all good except for the passengers side window which does have a crack in it. The car rides around on its original wheels and hubcaps which are wrapped with wide white wall tires which are perfect for this vintage of vehicle. The tires are from Coker and are new so they have a lot of life left in them. It also has the rear skirts which complete the classic 50s look.
Under the forward tilting hood is the Thunderbird 312 V8 which was the largest displacement available for this year. It starts up smoothly and doesn't smoke or have any issues. It is backed by an automatic transmission that moves through the gears nicely. It has factory power brakes and power steering which are nice options to have.
The interior is done in a Green and White color combo to match the body. The upholstery work is in good shape and it has bench seats in front/rear. Everything has been kept mostly original except for the added seatbelts and aftermarket console/cupholders which sit on the seat. All of the lights are working properly with no problems. The trunk of this car has a ton of storage space and houses a spare and jack.
This cool survivor car has a lot going for it and looks great rolling down the road. There is nothing quite like the style of these 50's classics and this one is the top of the line trim level with nice factory options.
