156-1957 Ford Fairlane Supercharged 2-Door Club Sedan
This Fairlane comes our way from the private collection of well known long time Georgia Ford enthusiast and collector, the late Wayne Blackwood. From his early days of drag racing his 1968 Super Stock Shelby 500K Mustang, to realizing a dream and owning his Lincoln/Mercury dealership for many years, Wayne has owned, driven, collected, built and sold nothing but Ford products. He is known to “bleed Ford blue if cut”.
Wayne owned this Fairlane for over 15 years and performed a complete no-expense-spared restoration/build. As with everything he did, he clearly went above and beyond expectations to add his personal preferences that make this car his own and special.
The “Raven” black paint is near flawless and shows as new on this laser straight body. The Interior is finished in correct grey cloth with correct trim. A 4-speed transmission is coupled to the iconic 312 cubic inch “Thunderbird Special” V-8 eng. It has undergone a complete, and time consuming, professional build that includes ported and polished heads, performance cam, a 347 “stroker” kit that was engineered and designed specifically for this engine application to be used with the Paxton Supercharger. Wayne told us that he invested over $90.000 in his baby through the years. We truly understand why this was one of his favorites.
