MCACN: 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner

This red 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner was displayed at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals.We can’t quite put our finger on it, but something grabbed us about the classic Fords from the 1950s parked at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. It could have been their flawless presentations or the miles of chrome and gold anodized body-side trim but whatever it was, vehicles likes this 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner had us stopping for a closer look. The folding softtop on this example (the Skyliner models had the folding hardtop) was down in the retracted position, allowing an all-access look at the two-tone cabin – which, along with the rest of the cruiser, looked showroom fresh.

Ellen and Berneil Burns own this motoring icon and it presented exceptionally well even when parked among the ranks of other fine classics and muscle machines at the show.

  1. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but Collectible Auto archives tells us that the name FAIRLANE came from the street in Ireland that the Ford family originated. Perhaps this is in addition to the family estate.
