1955 FORD CROWN VICTORIA - THE "BASKET HANDLE" ROOF BAND MODEL

Ford created an experimental car of the future called the Mystere. The '55 Crown Vic would borrow some of those design cues including the stainless steel wrapover roof band sometimes referred to as the " basket handle", or the tiara. The '55 model was a complete makeover in design which had the Crown Vic at the top followed by Victoria, Sunliner convertible, station wagons, Fairlane, Customline, and lastly the Mainline. There were 3 engines available for any model of Ford. These were the L-head 6, 223 cid, 120 hp., V8, 272 cid, 162 hp., and a V8, 272 cid, 182 hp. The Crown Vic came with or without a Plexiglas roof insert but only 1,999 were built vs. 33,165 Vics with standard steel roof. The Plexiglass Vic costs $2,272 and the standard roof cost $2,202. The new design caused sales to increase to levels not seen at Ford since 1923. This Crown Vic is just spendidly restored in it's red and white 2-tone color scheme seen inside as well as out. The engine compartment - you could eat off of it, the fender skirts, arm rest, speedometer window on top to view with sunlight shining through and the basket handle crown are all features that make this particular Vic a truly beautiful car. Look this over and I'm sure you'll agree that mid-fifties Ford products are in a field all by themselves. Thanks very much for viewing this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria hardtop.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/86cfjw2 This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama, Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George Barris and John Force among others. It's one of the best customs on the planet and it carries the show history to prove it. Body modifications were handled by Bernt Karlsson, owner of Customs by Bernt, who should be familiar to you as Boyd Coddington's painter on the show American Hotrod. Karlsson began making customizations to the body by adding a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55 Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon and Cadillac wheel covers which provide a nice subtle stock-yet-custom touch. After the shell was finished, Nosse Brothers took over for the reassembly and customization of the small details. They installed a full set of custom fitted Solex tinted glass, painstakingly built up the Art Morrison chassis before marrying it to the body and handled all finishing aspects of the car from headliner to fuel lines. 1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same soft, aromatic two tan leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized '56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. This custom interior veritably screams class, refinement and comfort and makes for an exceptionally well tied together car. Art Morrison built the custom 3" by 4" boxed frame and tubular A arm front suspension which houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears, Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes. Stainless fasteners are everywhere, braided hoses carry all fluids and the top loader 4-speed and a Cannon Engineering driveshaft is as detailed as the rest of the car. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. This is one show car that's as drivable as it is perfect! The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460 cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460 aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s. Doug's Headers and a Modine radiator round out the package and complement Bernt's smoothed firewall. Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. When you've got the right people and the right plan trophies just about get mailed to your door. It was Boyd Coddington's personal pick at his eponymous cruise, best of show at John Force's holiday cruise, finished second at the GNRS in mild custom, took the Outstanding Elegance award in Fresno, best custom at Carlisle and Meguiars sponsored the car in 2005. Of course, that list neglects smaller shows that it's gone to, but suffice to say it never lost. Bob McClurg himself wrote the car up in a six page spread in Super Rod. If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make you smile. With its show winning history, award winning builders, mountain of trophies and dynamite looks this is just the custom car centerpiece you've been looking for to add to your collection!
