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.
