The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model that was sold between 1955 and 1970 by Ford in North America. The name was derived from Henry Ford's estate, 'Fair Lane', near Dearborn, Michigan and over time the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-sized car, but became a mid-sized car from the 1962 model year. In 1956 Ford replaced the P-code 292 V8 engine with an optional new 312 'Thunderbird Special V8' version of the Y-Block and by 1957 it had 245HP with the automatic transmission. The 312 4BBL V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears.
This is a rare opportunity to own a beautifully restored as necessary over the years 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible.
