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.

1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
MOTOR SIZE CORRECTION Any time we get stunning 50's era Detroit metal into our Vanguard Motor Sales showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesn't stick around very long. This 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect car for anyone who wants an exceptionally well done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves. This car takes everything that was great about the first generation Fairlane and wraps it in outstanding workmanship. From top to bottom, the body of this car is as straight as when it rolled out of the factory. Dressed in two-tone red and white, the cars paint features an excellent shine with no major flaws or damage. The red and white color scheme gives the car a classic feeling. Panel gaps are just how you would expect, the door lips and jambs are clean and rust free. We were stunned by the quality of the stainless trim on this car, it is truly exceptional. Both the front and rear chrome bumpers are beautiful as well. A hood mounted Ford emblem and "Fairlane" script are centered on the hood and line up perfectly with the hood ornament. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows down the side of the car, and the great looking Ford emblems with "Crown Victoria" badges are centered on each door. Ahead of the front fender openings, V8 emblems announce the presence of a Ford Y block. The Crown Victoria exclusive chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim is in truly awesome condition. On the right side of the trunk a "Ford-O-Matic" script announces the presence of a hydraulic transmission. As the body tag reads, this Fairlane is a top of the line car that features an excellent running correct 312 Y-block V8. You can see the "Thunderbird" polished valve covers, aluminum intake, custom made ceramic powder coated headers by Red's Headers, an Edelbrock carb and the gorgeous air cleaner. The heater blower motor and duct work have been restored. In front of the engine the generator and cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss black radiator. Power steering and power front disc brakes are also included. The frame and underside of the car are solid! There have been a few repairs to the floor boards and rocker on the driver side, but the passenger side has been untouched. Any repairs that were done, were done beautifully. The original rear end is present along with 2 inch lowering blocks. The 2 inch aluminum dual Exhaust and Smithy mufflers sound awesome. Behind the oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic 2-speed transmission. The rear drum brakes appear to be in excellent condition. Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been excellently done. A new headliner is tight across the roof and features the bottom side of the Crown Victoria 'basket handle'. In front of you, a perfectly restored dash houses the speedometer, fuel and temperature gauges, warning lights and a gear selector window. In the center of the dash you'll find a clock, and a unique AM radio. Updates include a 1956 Ford steering column and the steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring. The restored trunk features a new mat. This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a high level of detail and carefully maintained. If you wanted to restore a car to this level on your own, you'd be well into the 6 figure range and probably sink years into the project. Beautiful, solid, well done cars like this don't come along too often and given the attention it draws in our showroom, I expect it to be rolling out the door before too long.

132559 / 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria
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!
