I recently performed an appraisal on this very rare 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 F Code. This was in a collection of cars in Punta Gorda, Florida that I appraised for an estate. One of the cars was this 1957 Ford Fairlane F Code was 312 V8 with a four barrel carb and a McCulloch-Paxton Supercharger rated at 300 HP. This was the most powerful engine that Ford had available at the time. Ford made the F Codes engines available in quite a few models, however were most found in Thunderbirds. It is believed that 211 F Code Thunderbirds were produced and all models netted less than 300 cars. A rare performance Ford by any measure. This was a very nice car, that was well sorted, and the subject of a well done, but older restoration.
