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 BluWht
One of my favorite cars! 272 c.i. overhead valve Y block V8. Ford had
lots of two tone combinations this year..so different from previous years!
This car has Fordomatic along with power steering. Not only is the

luxury to the low priced field!

1956 Ford Customline located in our Louisville Ky Showroom
1956 Ford Customline for sale in our Louisville Kentucky Showroom. The 2
door Customline is a way cool car that brings the late 50's roaring back to
life. Does American Graffiti ring a bell? A few changes have been made to
this cool old car to make it a little bit more modern. The 292 Y-block has
been replaced with a healthy little 302 that sounds strong and responsive.
The 302 engine is helped out with 289 Hi-P heads and a 289 Hi-Po hydraulic
cam. A venerable Holley 650 carburetor helps out with the horsepower. Power is
transmitted to a 1966 Toploader manual 4-speed that is connected to the
original Ford rear end. The exterior is a beautiful red and white paint
scheme that promotes the dead on 50's styling. The interior is a very
tasteful red, black and gray color scheme. This 1956Ford Customline rides
on Cragar SS wheels that are wrapped in BF Goodrich TA performance radials.

Y Block powered 1962 Ford Unibody LSR Best pass for Nov 2013 El Mirage
Our best pass for 2013 at El Mirage. Maybe not the best we can do but it's
been a rough year. Couldn't get parts for the new engine until just before
Speed Week (we did run 147.195 there) then the Sept. and Oct. meets were
canceled. When Nov. came around the course conditions were less than good
so you run with what you got. Truck ran great and we will post better
times next May. Cheers!
