1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Barn Find. Great Project, Auto Trans. No Reserve on 2040-cars
Concord, California, United States
You are bidding on a 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 project. The car is complete and very rust free. I have all of the trim, nuts, bolts, fenders, lights, wires, clips, body pieces, bumpers, radiator, everything.
Two years ago the vehicle was driven to where it was disassembled for a repaint. The front clip was removed and the interior was disassembled. The project was started but never completed. The car is complete minus the front windshield and drivers door glass. (a new front windshield is available for $300.00). This is a big project. But now is your chance to get a great car for cheap money this is a no reserve auction.....Pictures are worth a thousand words so look closely.
In the pictures the front sheetmetal is only held in place with rope. The power front seat and rear seats are not pictured but are included and have been reupholstered the same color as the door panels. The car was running prior to it being disassembled. The only known mechanical issue at the time was a leaking transmission. The mileage is questionable hence the 111,111 in the listing.
It has a clear CA. title and it is currently registered as non-op.
I am not exactly sure of the motor size.
I don't know what it is worth and I will not end the auction early.
Please ask all questions prior to bidding.

Subcompact sales slump, yet again
Ford is announcing six separate recalls for a variety of issues affecting a dozen models and a total of 100,610 vehicles in North America. However, according to Ford spokesperson Kelli Felker, "None of them have caused accidents or injuries." Half of them cover fewer than 1,000 cars.
The largest recall covers 92,022 North American examples (about 83,250 in the US) of some models of the Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS, Ford Interceptor, Flex and Lincoln MKT from the 2013 and 2014 model years; the 2012-2014 Edge and the 2014 Lincoln MKX. All of them have a potential issue with the halfshaft on the right side that might not be fully seated and could move outward over time. If it shifts too far, the models may no longer be able to drive, and the condition could also allow the vehicles to roll away, even when in Park. Dealers will inspect the shaft to make sure it's seated and will replace the part if necessary.
The next-largest recall covers 5,264 North American examples (4,867 in the US) of the Ford F59 Commercial Stripped Chassis from the 2011-2014 model years. It's possible that an electrical junction box can corrode in areas with salty roads and short circuit. The problem could potentially cause a fire. Dealers will replace the box with an improved design.
It's always amazing to see how different kinds of racecars are made. Formula One racers are often constructed in modern architectural marvels that hint at some of the cutting-edge technology going into the racing. Conversely, rallying is all about sliding around on a varied course as fast as possible, but it often leaves a vehicle caked in mud. So it makes some sense Olsbergs MSE, or simply (OMSE) rally car shop in Nynashamn, Sweden, shows technological sophistication in a more down-to-earth setting. It builds Ford Fiesta ST racers for Global Rallycross there, and this new video gives viewers a tour through the work.
Former rally driver Andreas Eriksson runs OMSE. These days instead of racing, he and the company's 46 employees are building Ford racers from scratch. A ton of work goes into constructing each one, and according to Eriksson, it takes 400 hours to complete each body. At times, things are so busy that some of the technicians live in the shop in apartments that are on premises. There's even a restaurant to keep them fed. Sadly the dyno room is empty during this visit, though.
By the time OMSE is done, a rallycross car might resemble a Fiesta ST on the outside, but as you see in the video, it's a completely different beast underneath. Check out the work it takes to build one of them, and scroll down to read more about it in the official release.
