1957 Ford Fairlane
4.6L V8, AOD TRANS, AIR RIDE, A/C, HEATED SEATS, RACK & PINION, RESTO-MOD!
HIGHLIGHTS: Mild custom that will catch you off guard! Plenty of resto-mod upgrades including Air Ride suspension, heated seats, rack and pinion steering, and a 4.6 V8/AOD out of a Mustang. That's right, fuel injected!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Fairlane is very nice as this car was fully disassembled and restored at the time of customization. An old photo album in the trunk shows that this car was taken apart, and a restoration began as if it were going back original. The body and trim have been kept in original style and look great!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Though this car has many modern upgrades, it has been done for several years. The paint has a brilliant shine and looks nice and smooth, but does show signs of use here and there from frequent outings over the years.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior condition is very similar to the paint condition in that the majority of it looks fantastic but it does show signs of use. This car was built to be enjoyed! The heated power-adjustable front bench seat is a huge plus, and the air conditioning ensures a comfortable ride in the summer.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The Mustang 4.6 liter V8 not only gives this car plenty of power, but it also gives the reliability of a modern fuel-injected car and cold starts easily. Plus, it sounds fantastic through the dual glasspack exhaust! Power brakes and 4-corner adjustable Air Ride make this car feel both comfortable and safe.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: All of the modern touches! It looks like a classic car, but behaves like a relatively new car. The steering is tight and the engine fires right up.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Air Ride gives a comfortable ride...almost like you're riding on air. If you like to feel every bump and really get a feel for the road, this is not the car for you.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? It could use some minor cosmetic repairs here and there, but generally speaking it is turn-key!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Someone looking to relive their 1960s/1970s teenage experiences in a car that is more powerful, more comfortable, and generally more enjoyable to drive.
