The 1957 Ford Station Wagon was offered in five body styles in two- and four-door form and three levels of trim, mirroring the Custom, Custom 300 and Fairlane 500 models. Several powertrain options were available from the base-level inline six through the 312 cubic-inch V8 engines. For those individuals seeking even more style and performance, the sporty two-door Ranch Wagon could be purchased in 1957 with the E-Code 312 cubic-inch V8 which offered 270 horsepower, thanks - in part - to a 9.7:1 compression ratio and a pair of Holley four-barrel carburetors mounted on a special intake manifold.
This 1957 Station Wagon was originally built with the E-Code 312 V8 engine. It was given a complete nut-and-bolt restoration and earned an AACA Junior, Senior and Special National awards. In 2007, the car was acquired by the O'Quinn collection.
The car is finished in red and white two-tone interior with maroon carpets. There is a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive, air conditioning, power steering, a reclining front seat and a Town & Country radio. Exterior features include combination rear-view mirrors with spotlights, full bumper guards, rocker moldings and the 300-level trim package.
Since the restoration, the car has traveled just 102 miles.
In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island sale presented by RM Auctions. As bidding came to a close, the vehicle had been sold for the sum of $77,000 including buyer's premium.
