This Fairlane 500 Coupe was built in Ford's San Jose, Northern California plant on the 15th November 1957 and was painted in two-tone Inca Gold & Colonial White and featured a wave fabric in Raven Vinyl & Gold Ripple interior. It was produced as a 312cui V8 engined car with a Ford-O-Matic 3-spd column-shift automatic transmission and driven through a conventional 3.10:1 rear differential, and was first delivered to the Seattle, Washington State DSO for sale and where it was subsequently sold and spent all its life.

In 1957, Ford introduced a new lineup of cars, moving them into the jet age, with new front and rear suspension, a redesigned driveline, and a wider frame for passenger protection, were lower, longer, and wider than previous models. They were highly successful, becoming the bestselling car of 1957 and outselling Chevrolet for the first time since 1935. Ford named its pillarless hardtop Victoria, with the 'Club Victoria' being the 2-door version. Inside, the new curved instrument panel featured recessed control knobs for passenger protection in case of an accident and a new sweep-hand speedometer. For Ford fans, 1957 was the year Ford built their first truly modern car.

Truly an incredible piece of automotive history! This Fairlane 500 Club Victoria has been in the ownership of the same family in the Seattle area since new. The story goes that grandma bought this one new and left the seat covers on and forbade the grandchildren from even riding in it. It would be fair to say that grandma knew what she was doing when she purchased this highly optioned beauty! The car looks incredible with a nice, deep shine. There is chrome & stainless trim everywhere and it really looks impressive. It is reported that the paint is original with the exception of the passenger quarter panel just behind the door where a bike had hit the car. The paint repair was thin and if you look for it specifically you can see it. There is no obvious signs of rust anywhere on the car. Again, its reported that this car was garaged its entire life.

The interior is like entering a time warp. The paint and chrome trim shine beautifully on the dash. The seat upholstery is still protected by a plastic cover so long lasting that I'm sure it cant even be made today. The seat upholstery appears to have lived unharmed underneath should the next owner remove the covers. Thanks to the care this car received the systems all appear to work. The factory radio takes a second or two for the tubes to warm up but then comes to life. The heater motor works correctly, and the heater doors work like new. The seats are super comfortable with good support. Take a good look at the pictures and check the details. This is an impressive example from its era!

Under the bonnet you will find a 4-barrel equipped Thunderbird 312cui 'Y-block OHV' engine that runs like a clock. This was the upgraded engine that was on offer at the time, as most were running the common 292 V8 & 6-cylinder engine options. Another nice option is the rare Ford-O-Matic 3-spd automatic transmission, as many of these cars were produced with the 3-speed column shifted manual transmission. Both the steering and braking systems are factory fitted power-assisted units that work nicely.

The trunk still wears its original trunk mat and cardboard trim boards. The spare tire is held in place by its factory hardware and the original bumper jack is in amazing condition. The glass all appears to be the original with its original light gray FoMoCo markings.

So, this car is a true and unbelievable survivor, and is as true to its original form as your ever likely to find out there. Where do you find them as original and as good as this?
