I have a continental kit and skirts on my 57. The thing is super huge now! LOL

BTW, plan on at least $2,000 to $2,500 when it is all said and done. Maybe even more. You gotta love em to shell out the cash any more.

Although I have no firsthand knowledge, you'll probably still want to carry a spare in the trunk. removing the spare from the continental kit is a chore.

Be wary of sloping drives and tiresome fill-ups. They do look cool though.

This one is offered on the "Fords of 1957" FB page:

I have no connection with the sale.

There was a kit listed on Craigslist recently as well.

57ragtop, I suspect you'll also need to beef up the rear suspension for the extra weight, distance / leverage off the back end of the car.
