I would offer four grand because it has a six with a two-speed Fordomatic. This is a base Ford 300 with a radio and heater, not a Fairlane or Galaxie. It does have the bumper guards on front and rear (which is rare). Convertibles and retractibles are worth more, but not this. If this car had a 352 and a 3-speed COM it would be worth more. - Dave

It's worth what someone will pay for it; no more, no less.

In NZ the price asked would be NZ$15,000, (about US$12,000.) at a minimum, probably NZ$20,000 would be nearer the mark.

IF it's as good and oroginal as it's meant to be!

Perhaps I should've started this thread as not "what is it worth?", but "what would you pay for it?"

I've seen so many '57 Chevy's, but very very few of THESE cars.

As much as I like '59 Fords that model never did anything for me. Unless you have some sentimental attachment to it it's just a nice original car that's interesting to look at.

Perhaps the finest full size Ford ever produced. It's big and beautiful. With a little upgrade it's a fantastic car to go anywhere at any time and in any weather.

Ours turns heads everywhere we take it. Y-blocks sound the absolute best of any engine, by all accounts. Car buffs are eager and excited to ask us to raise the hood. We always oblige.

Too bad there aren't more out there at a reasonable cost. - Dave

I wouldn't mind picking up a nice '59 convertible seeing that prices are fairly low right now. They're pretty rare though. I had a retractable quite a few years ago but traded it for a '64 Thunderbird. Probably should've kept it.

Cool

There's always the 1959 Ford SUNLINER option to look for too (soft top).

I'm surprised this clean '57 Fairlane had bidding that high, myself.
