If you're going to have a classic coupe, then do it right. Start with a unique single-year style like this 1957 Ford Fairlane. Then make sure you've got the cool pillarless hardtop Club Victoria model so that people have an uncluttered view of the slick black exterior that flows into the two-tone interior. Also add in add plenty of great driving features, including the overdrive transmission that comes on the 312 V8.This sleek black look was made to grab attention. The more modern clearcoat shine makes a great first impression, which is good because the '57 Ford is a car that was made to be seen. This was the only year for the single headlight design with the restyled body, and its unique appearance gave these coupes a daring face. But what's really impressive is that all the intricate pieces that make this car a standout are complete. The '57 redesign brought the first true tailfin, which is emphasized further thanks to the rear fender skirts and the Fairlane's exclusive rear trim line. A full-width grille, mirror-like wraparound chrome bumpers, and jet-inspire taillights complete this iconic coupe. It even feels correct right down to the factory-style hubcaps. Plus those whitewall tires and red wheels are a great hint at what awaits you inside.The pillarless Club Victoria hardtop body means everyone gets a terrific view of the two-tone interior. The sleek white on the seats give way to the ribbed red inserts for a look that's both correct and appears custom. The way the colors coordinate on the carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dash gives you a uniform presentation that you'll be proud to show off. The view from behind the wheel is pure 1950s cool. Ford's arching instrument panel is a great-looking piece of industrial design, complete with plenty of bright trim to accentuate the dash. And the whole presentation looks period-correct right down to the heat/defrost sliders. But this is a true cruising machine, and so you also have a custom center console that houses nice upgrades like a cup holder and an AM/FM/cassette stereo.Underneath the sporty clamshell hood is the correct D-code 312 cubic-inch V8. Topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, it delivers smooth performance and plenty of torque to move the big coupe without working very hard. It has that great period-correct appearance with the large air topper and the correct Thunderbird Special valve covers. But you might also notice the upgrade to the aluminum radiator. That's part of why this is such a nice driving package. Plus, three-speed manual transmission is great for making the most out of the large V8, but when it's time to settle in for the long haul, there's also overdrive. Add in a supple ride and a more modern tread on those whitewalls, and this is a nice all-around cruising classic.This one has the right look, power, and features to be your all-time favorite. That's why you know you have to act fast to take it home. Call today!!!
