When Ford introduced its 1957 model line, no one would have predicted they'd out-Chevrolet Chevrolet for the first time in years. Considering how iconic the '57 Chevy is, it should be pointed out that the Ford is not lacking in the areas that have made the Chevy desirable. First, take styling: Ford completely redesigned the '57 for a crisper, sleeker look, no doubt due to the new chassis and 118-inch wheelbase. Ford's traditional round taillights were topped off by tasteful, sharp-edged fins, and up front the dual headlights poked out from little hoods. Next, take power: Ford's top "Y-block" V-8 at 312 cid generated 245 horsepower in standard trim, but dual four-barrel carburetors brought it up to 270. A supercharged "Police Interceptor" version offering 300 horsepower was Ford's contribution to the burgeoning "horsepower race." Lastly, take innovation: Nineteen fifty-seven was the first year for Ford's famous Skyliner retractable hardtop. A triumph of engineering and kitsch, it had a conventional hardtop that stowed away in the trunk compartment thanks to over 600 feet of wiring and numerous motors and mechanisms. Painted in two-tone paint in Raven Black and Flame Red and equipped with accessories like Continental kit and chrome grille guard, this Fairlane 500 Victoria cruises even smoother than it looks thanks to the big 312 V-8 hooked up to the Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Acquired by the current vendor in 2005, it's the quintessential example of the ingredients Ford used to beat Chevrolet in 1957. Without reserve
