1957 Ford C8000
1957 Ford Country Squire two-door wagon with a 429 Cobra Jet Police Interceptor engine, C6 trans and Cadillac rack and pinion steering.. You will be hard-pressed to find a more solid or straight body on any 57 wagon. This car has had a recent strip down to the bare metal, all glass out, new weather seals and a repaint. She runs well and is ready for your custom touches. All the rubber seals on the glass and doors is new and correct. Doors also have the new felts on the windows and all the windows operate like new. The paint is in excellent condition. All of the Glass & Trim was removed before painting so there is no overspray or tape lines. The previous owner chose a flat blue. If this is not your taste it would be easy to make it a two tone flat paint job. If you wish to do a color change you'll be starting off with a car with a laser straight body and all new soft rubber seals so taking it back down for a proper repaint would not be a major undertaking. The interior is new. New carpet, new seat covers, new headliner, new door panels, and repainted dash. All in black. The engine is a 429 CJ Police Interceptor. Previous owner said it came from a 1972 model. He rebuilt the engine dropping the compression ratio by one point and installing a mid-range cam. His intentions were to use it as a retro tow vehicle for his vintage race car. He also installed Cadillac power rack and pinion steering. Other than this the suspension is original spec and in good condition. While it still has the original drum brakes they are in very good condition and operated via a modern dual circuit master cylinder. Old wagons are all the rage right now. This one is Rock Solid and ready to receive your personal touches.
