Lot #712.1 - This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Retractable today looks just as fresh and exciting as it did a half century ago. This famous Ford is a solid rust-free example and was treated to a passionate mechanical and cosmetic restoration. It has been finished in a cool hot climate color combination of Pearl White with an interior of contrasting white and beige inserts. Great for the hot climates with the top down. Under the hood is the optional 312cid Thunderbird V8 engine with 245hp, the largest displacement offered in a Ford for that season. Other accessories include modern radio, continental kit and faux spotlights. Adding to the sparkle and shine of the exterior is the abundant amount of chrome. This car is a dream to drive and still creates amazement to those who see this mechanical marvel do its process of turning into the ultimate Hideaway Hardtop. Among the most desirable of all collector cars from the 1950s, the Ford Skyliner Retractable Hardtop is near the top of the list. This example presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a car that will be fun to own, powerful enough to drive on a modern highway.
