Description

Chassis No. E7KW180144

All new for '57, this Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner was ordered new with the rare and desirable 'E-Code' engine option bestowing this car with a 312 cu-in V8 breathing through a unique air intake to accommodate a pair of two four-barrel carburetors. The upgraded carburetors and intake system boosted power from 245 hp to 270. A prominent feature of this car is the 'Hide-Away Hardtop,' the world's first convertible equipped with a power-folding hardtop roof. The optional Select-Aire air conditioning allows passengers to stay relaxed and comfortable regardless of weather conditions. Shortly after acquiring this car after a lengthy search in 1995, the previous owner commissioned a complete, three-year restoration. At this time, the 1959 model year hood was installed due to personal preference. The correct 1957 hood, included with the car, was restored at the same time, allowing the new owner to return the car to stock condition with relative ease. Rarely seen on roads today, this 1957 would be an excellent addition to any collection looking for '50s American flair.
