1957 Ford Custom 300 2 Door - GONE!
This 1957 Ford Custom 300 2 Door survivor is powered by a 272, 3 speed,
overdrive. It is believed the 31,609K miles are true first time around
miles. The exterior has been repainted once, but the interior is factory,
and it has a working radio and heater. If you remember when this car was
new, and you couldn't afford it then, or if you have fond memories of a
1957 Ford Custom 300 2 door, you owe it to yourself to own this one. It is
just perfect in every way.

1965 AFX 427 SOHC test drive.wmv
Just a quick update on the car.For the most part finished, just a couple
little things.Heres a walk around and a bit of a Test drive. This actually
is the first time Ive driven it down the road.Weather and Holidays so,
Merry X-Mas to me. It was awesome so far no issues exept those Pie crust
slicks just spin all the time. Barely get on the throttle and they spin.
AWESOME Perfect street car other than I think i just went through 2 gallons
of Fuel to do this Video.
1957 Ford Country Sedan Test Run
1957 Ford Country Sedan T-Bird Special Station Wagon
Just a brief walk-around and then starting it up and running it for the
first time since I finished up most of the engine work and installed the
Basic work that still needs to be done:
Remove the old and clogged choke tube and install a new on in the manifold
Tune the choke
Build and install new Exhaust
Turn and re-install all four brake drums
Install new e-brake cables
Rebuild power steering system
Drain the transmission and torque converter, replace the transmission
filter, re-fill the transmission
Install new turn indicator switch
Install new front turn indicator lights
Install new crankcase vent filter/screen
Replace the tires
Clean up the inside, clean the outside...then it's ready for a test drive
This car sat for over 20 years before I got it running again. The engine,
brakes, fuel system, cooling system, suspension, steering arms, etc... have
all been rebuilt at this point. There's alot left to do, but it's pretty
far along at this point.
1957 Ford Custom 300 Tudor Blk
Not every Ford made in 1957 was a Fairlane 500, although you might get that
idea when attending a vintage car show! This is a beautiful example of a
Custom 300 sedan. A fair amount of trim on the outside, and long wearing,
durable fabrics on the inside. Note that this is the first year for the
forward opening hood for the full sized Ford...something that Ford would
continue through the 1959 model year.
