My dads Fairlane

This is my dad's 1957 Fairlane Retractable Hardtop. It is all original except for the wheels. It has a very small amount of rust and still waxes up very nice. It has a 312 the interior has been redone on it. He will never get rid of it. I don't blame him.

Man.. Cool. I dont see many retracts. Good looking car. I would love to find one or a 58-60 t-bird. I used to work on some of those retracts at the old t-bird shop. Man, they have a lot of relays (solenoids) behind the back seat. And the screw jacks are neat to watch.
The 66 t-bird retract was a whole lot different. A real pain to set up.
