This 1957 Ford Custom 300 is the right kind of custom for old-school fun. Beneath the classic style is a hot V8 and custom interior that makes this feel like a 1950s Saturday Night cruiser king. And you even get better control over it all with the five-speed.
You could easily call this one a sleeper. The factory-correct Willow Green was resprayed a bit ago, and today it has a nice shine with the right touches of aging. So it looks like you just pulled out a barn find. And this well-kept car shows off all the best pieces, like the Thunderbird-style taillights and wraparound glass both front and rear. Plus, the full-length side trim has a gold insert and stylish dip behind the door line. It gives this vintage car added distinction as well as highlights the straightness of the sheet metal. The whole Ford has the outside appearance of a true classic, right down to the color-matched wheels and dog dish hubcaps.
The sea of green continues inside, but it's not the color that first caught your attention. The tuck and roll style of the seats and door panels give this vintage Ford the cool look of a 1950s custom boulevard machine. There are solid classic features like the good headliner, a working dome light, a smooth dash, the classic Ford steering wheel, and even the AM radio is there for a display. Plus, the restoration photo book even shows proper dynamat insulation installed under the carpet. So it makes for a good cruiser. And the Hurst floor shifter reminds you how fun cruising the right classic can be.
The best street machines got solid V8 upgrades back in the day. And so while Ford's 351 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 was over a decade away when this Custom was built, it makes for the right kind of power upgrade. We're told the V8 was built by Jerry Mason of Bud Moore Racing. We don't have documentation on this, but it does have the healthy power that suggests a professional performance build. It also has the right components like a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, a Shelby intake, a Pertronix Flamethrower distributor, Boss 351 finned valve covers, and a large aluminum radiator. The control of this enhanced V8 is firmly in your hands thanks to the five-speed manual upgrade. It's a true classic that wants you to feel the road, but a good ride and modern tires also make this experience comfortable.
Sleeper fun and the right upgrades make for a very cool vintage street machine. So it's time to have some old-school fun. Call today!!!
