Nostalgia is a funny thing. It makes us fond for a bygone era, and often altering the history slightly so that it really only makes us see the positive even more. So when we see that this 1957 Ford Custom 300 has details like an Ultraleather interior, a Bluetooth stereo, and motor detail upgrades to a better cruiser, we know this is pure rolling nostalgia. The two-tone Starmist Blue and Dresden Blue combination is perfect for the 1950s and makes the Ford look long and lean. The two colors are tastefully intertwined where it catches your eye with the way the darker blue is on the roof, and the full-length trim provides another dividing line for the colors. In fact, speaking of the trim, this is quite special where the golden insert and sharply creasing dip make the 1957 Ford one of the most distinctive cars of its day (oh yes, even more than the 57 Bel Air!) And so we kind of like the four-door sedan body the best just because of how cool this flowing trim design looks when its broken up in two places when you open up both side doors. More than just the colors and trim, the wraparound chrome bumpers, T-Bird style tail lights, turbine-style wheel covers, and distinct single-year headlight design are all part of a true classic cruiser appearance that we love. And so this wants to be the kind of classic you drive, and so the overall finish has the right look of a car thats easy to hit the road on a whim. And the wide whitewalls, fender skirts, and polished exhaust tips are pure boulevard machine cool. The consignor has said that he put about $7k worth of investments in this sedan in about the last five years, and one of the most noticeable places is the interior. The upholstery doesnt look out of place, but the extra clean style and supple Ultraleather make this especially inviting. And so the level that everyone can get comfortable in this classic is why you can really see why we love this for being a true cruiser. Plush carpeting, detailed door panels, and a smooth dash are all part of a rewarding classic experience They even have the little things, like the working dome light, a clean Ford family crest at the center of the steering wheel, and the stock AM radio for a display. But the better cruiser attitude still comes through with well-placed upgrades, like the newer speedometer and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth for the best in driving music. The sporty forward-tilt hood reveals the fresh red paint of the 272 cubic-inch V8. These are hardy torque-filled powerhouses on their own, and part of the investments in this sedan was to make sure that the motor was the backbone of a great cruiser attitude. So you also have upgrades like a large aluminum radiator to help keep this running cooler, and a newer dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers to give you a dignified V8 tune. The automatic transmission was even rebuilt earlier this year. Even with all these additions, this Ford wants you to feel the road is the right way that only a true classic can. Its about making sure its a strong driver that never loses its proper 1950s vibe. This likes to be a distinct classic, and that also includes the extras that come with the sale. You have terrific paperwork like the original dealer invoice, service manuals, and maintenance records. Plus, there are also nice extras like spare components and period-correct luggage you can use for a car show display. All of this adds up to a car that is very vintage with the right additions to make it better than it was back in the day. This 1957 Ford is pure nostalgia in the best ways. Call today!!!
