1958 Ford Fairlane Fairlane Additional Info:

For sale: This listing (no reserve here) is for a real nice running and driving 1958 Ford Fairlane Custom antique car. It's a coupe with an original 6 cylinder (223 cid), 3 speed drive train and original interior. It was last shown locally in 1990 and since that time was stored. Mechanically, its now received a carb and fuel pump rebuild, new battery, full tune up and new fluids, new coil, redone radiator and hoses, checked generator output and starter brushes/use, inspected and adjusted clutch and brakes. Car runs and drives fine, even has dual exhaust with a nice rumble (see manifold pic)! Currently, it is running on a temporary tank as the original gas tank and lines will still need to be cleaned and reconnected. This car would make a great first collector car, a father and son/daughter project, or just a weekend fun vehicle.Selling as is and as described, without warranty and with no return possibility - just a real nice antique car!*****
Paint here is enamel with a nice shine. There have been some body repairs and some areas could be redone if desired (see pics), chrome is mostly original with some pitting, and hubcaps are from a 1957 Ford. Tires are wide white bias belted and in very good shape. Floors and the frame are solid here with no repairs. Glass is all good and the interior could be left covered with original plastic (plastic covering is browning) or original interior could be uncovered (it is very nice). This was a basic model so it has a full rubber floor mat - I do have a full new blue carpet set that goes with it - just never got installed. I have driven the car about 20 miles - idles wonderfully, drives fine, and sounds nice. I would recommend replacing the master cylinder as sometimes the pedal is soft (still stops, no visible leaks) and finishing the gas tank cleaning. Otherwise, I think it is a pretty nice old Ford looking for a new home!*****
Good Illinois title in my name. Included also is the owner's manual and thick service manual, fender skirt pair, new blue carpet set, some extra interior trim parts and some misc. nos mechanical parts.
