1957 Ford Fairlane Skyliner
1957 Ford Fairlane
1957 Ford Fairlane Retractable Hardtop.
I purchased this car in Northern California in August of 2003, and brought it to Casper Wyoming where is has sat in dry storage until these pictures were taken last week. I have finally realized there are not enough sunrises left in my life for me to tackle this project. This car needs to go to someone who will restore it to its original glory!
I know you would have to look long and hard to find a car as complete and original as this one. The only three items I know of that are missing are the battery, the window washer fluid bag, and the jack handle. The original bumper jack is still in its original storage location.
This car will need total restoration. It does not run or drive at this time. The engine is NOT stuck. It will turn complete revolutions with no issues. The carb shaft is stuck, and I have a spare carb included.
This car has every factory option except air conditioning. It has the 312 V-8, auto trans, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seat, and padded dash. All glass is in good condition except for the passenger door glass is cracked. Flat glass, easy to replace.
This car will need complete rear floors and front floor repairs. The rockers are solid, the rear quarters are solid, the spare tire tub is solid. I saw no issues with the top mechanism mounts, the right front fender needs the lower end repaired(typical), the drivers door needs a small hole repaired(not rust),there are no issues with the hood, hood hinges, or radiator support. Overall this body is in good to very good condition. I am not able to raise the top, but I saw no issues in the rear window area or in the hinged panel area.
The interior is complete, nothing missing except the carpets, but will need to be completely redone.
I have a few miscellaneous additional parts that are included such as interior trim pieces for the top, extra tail light housings, extra wheel covers, and 4 correct wheels.
The new owner will have first choice on a set of original polished aluminum valve covers for an additional $250.00
All shipping arrangements and expenses are the buyers responsibility. I will gladly help in ant way Ican with loading.
