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.

Cruising in the 1955 Fairlane
Tommy Gun and I had to take the Fairlane out for a spin before we started the restoration. It only blows a wee little bit of smoke so we figured it'd be ok. If you can't tell by all the laughing, we were pretty much having a ball. There's nothing like driving a classic car. For those of you who haven't done it, you really have to try it. Seriously. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for watching! PS - If you have any tips about the overdrive situation please let me know. Thanks. PPS - Music is the song "Little Talks" by "Of Monsters And Men".

1955 Ford Crown Victoria Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Any time we get stunning 50s 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 Crown Victoria has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect car for anyone who wants an accurate, exceptionally well done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves. Undoubtedly a six figure project, 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 a classic red and white combination, the paint features an excellent shine with no major flaws or damage. The margins, door and trunk lips, and rockers are straight, clean and rust free, without a wave or ripple in sight. The front bumper has been recently rechromed and the rest of the trim has been nicely restored. This Crown Victoria screams quality. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows from the top of the front fenders down the side of the car and hits the tail lights mid fender. This Fairlane is a top of the line car that features a 312 Y-block. An Edelbrock carburetor sits below the air cleaner, and Thunderbird Special polished valve covers shine on either side. Exhaust manifolds, a 6 volt battery, power brakes, re-cored and repainted radiator and the heater motor and duct work are all present under the hood. And check out the underside of that hood, what a paint job! Even the hood hinges have a beautiful coat of shiny white paint on them. The core support, inner fenders and firewall are all painted beautifully. Not a detail has been missed in this engine bay! The car even features a correct "See Clear" windshield washer fluid bag and a final approval Ford inspection stamp. The frame and underside of the car are clean and well cared for. The floors are solid with no signs of rust and the frame is straight without any indication of damage. Out back you will find a stock rear end, new shocks and springs that are not new, but still in great condition. A newer Exhaust system with Smithy mufflers was included in the restoration. The front suspension has been freshly painted and the steering gear is in great condition. Behind the oil pan sits the peppy and fun to drive, 3-on-the-Tree transmission. Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone red and white bench seats have been excellently restored. The fresh 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 clear gauges. In the center of the dash you'll find the controls for the Magic Aire system, clock, and radio. The locking glove box features cool Ford script. The steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring, is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful black carpet flows throughout the interior to tie everything together and complete the look. The nicely painted and clean trunk features a mat and a spare tire. 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.
