Timeless Beauty: Unveiling the Allure of the 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Victoria Club Coupe

Spread the love

In 1957, Ford introduced a new lineup of cars that were longer, lower, and wider than the ’56s, firmly moving Ford into the jet age with their styling. Ford’s passenger cars underwent changes resulting in sleeker, safer, better-driving, and handling vehicles.

 

 

The new Fords, 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, an impressive feat given the enduring popularity of the 1957 model.

 

 

The Ford’s styling was a home run, offering a more upscale look than other cars in its class with modest fins, lots of chrome, and sleek greenhouses that almost looked customized. The familiar side trim, introduced two years earlier, continued with a gold anodized insert on top-of-the-line Fairlane 500 models.

 

 

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.
