Value of '57 Ford Fairlane 500, very rough condition

04-08-2022, 01:11 PM
I'm trying to help my mother in law. Her husband passed away almost 2 years ago and she recently had a minor stroke, so I'm trying to sell off a lot of her husband's things that she no longer needs in an attempt to help her retire.

One of those nifty "things" are three 57 Fords! He bought them at least 30 years ago with the intention of taking parts from each and building one good car, but they've just sat in the back yard (under trees) ever since.

I know that it would be a dream find for the right person. It will take some wrench time, of course, but it's one of those things that a shadetree mechanic would absolutely love to do in his/her spare time.

Any suggestions on determining their actual worth, and then finding someone that would want to buy them?

My very first car was a 57 Fairlane hardtop and several 57 Fords followed. Pictures would help. Market place on Facebook, hemmings, craigslist list ect. The only Ford I have left from those days is my 56 Thunderbird. In 74 I bought a GTO and that changed the direction of my car journey. Since that first GTO Ive had several Pontiacs. I'm still pretty active in the local car world if you want to contact me directly I can see what I can do to help.
