1 of 39 E Codes, AC, 3 Speed Manual Overdrive
This amazing dual quad E Code was purchased in good condition by a collector in 1995 and subsequently sent off for a 3 year nut and bolt, no expense spared restoration. The result is one of the best Skyliners we've ever laid eyes on. The owner went on to acquire a 1958 and a 1959, but the 1957 was his favorite. We can see why... dual 4 barrel carburetors, a 3 speed on the column, overdrive, Select-Aire air conditioning, power windows and .....
brakes and Continental Kit.
The serial number on the frame designates this as an E Code car - E7 and then the 44 at the end of the frame stamped VIN.
