Here's my old girl that I've clocked up 33,000 miles in, since 1995.
Engine rebuilt and balanced in 2000 @ 58,000 miles
Brakes, bushes etc. rebuilt/replaced as required and just fitted a new fuel tank.
Not perfect but she's a "survivor"
A lazy 18.3 down the strip with 2.69:1 gears...
It was about time for this thread!
Is it just me or should it include the 59s also? JW
I say no ^^^...
This Gasser is listed for sale in the classifieds! HRD
What, not one picture of probably the most famous '57 Ford ever?....
That nose piece still looks perfect and still lined up with the hood...pretty amazing since both fenders appear to be torn loose from the nosepiece, and there are three bolts at each end!
Cool pic !
My Custom 300 with 351 Windsor and a c-4.
Jeff Myers Kotton Kandy....
After seeing a few of these on J.Brown's dyno over the years,he offered me one for DragWeek.When I said heck yes,he laughed.
1957 Fords have the best side trim designs ever.
They just "flow" with the car from high end models to the economy models.
Here's mine SeaBurst
Here you go Chris, 1958 Fairlane 500 c/w Shelby 482 stroker
The 58 custom 300 is fairly plentiful in NewZealand .most seemed to originally have the baby blue and a white roof .
And just about all 4-door.!
Can bird's land here ,or should they keep flying.

Local '58 Ranchero....super solid original!
1957 Courier. All stock from a few feet away, but more fun where it doesn't show.
This was my first car. It was orange and white when i got it but like most of the cars I've owned it soon became black. Bad scan of a bad polaroid.
