1958 Ford Ford Fairlane Club Victoria 2-Door Coupe, powered by a T-Bird big-block. Although the base engine in 1958 was a 223-cubic inch straight six packing just 145 bhp, most buyers specified V8s in their Fairlanes, including the owner of this one. However, the original engine has been junked in favor of something with a little more grunt- a 390-cubic inch, originally installed in a 1963 Thunderbird. A member of the FE-series big-block family, it is mostly stock, except for a Mallory electronic distributor and an MSD ignition. With three two-barrel Holley carburetors and a 10.5:1 compression ratio it produces a substantial 340bhp and 430 lb-ft of torque! This car features flamed paint for a striking appearance, the body has been sprayed in Two-Stage Turquoise, with contrasting white for the roof. Pearl white flames and Hot Pink pin striping on the hood and sides results in a look that is classic in the 1950s. Like many customs, the body has been shaved, along with the door handles, side and deck lid trim. The doors and truck are now opened by electric actuators. No hot rod or custom is complete without an aftermarket exhaust. In keeping with its 1950s theme, this Fairlane has a dual system with Glass-Pak mufflers. Lowered suspension makes this ride look even cooler on the street, it features air bags front and rear along with dropped spindles to achieve that perfect ride height wherever you go.
