They are only this nice once! One owner, 71K miles, 292 automatic, power
steering, radio, heater, dual Exhaust,

great. This was grandpa's car, always maintained by his grandson. This
stunning '56 is offered without the new interior kit "needed" but seats are
useable. A new gas tank was just installed. Also, a potential buyer had a
pre-purchase inspection done but due to unforeseen inability to finance,
could not purchase. His loss is your gain and we will be happy to pass any
or all information on to the next buyer.

56 Ford Fairlane Victoria -Hard Work is Done-Runs & Drives Great - SOLD!
This great old Ford runs and drives great! When it was purchased, it
needed a new gas tank and the brakes repaired which are done!
We have spent 6 months doing body work which has now all been done. Floor
pans were done as needed, it has been nosed, decked, and frenched, the
Peacock Blue paint has been purchased as well as the white paint.
It has a 292 V -8 with A/T and R/H. The big money work has been done. It
needs the block sanding finished, masked down and shot with paint. The
front and rear seats are good but the rest of the interior needs some help.
The price on it now is $8,000 if you finish it. If we finish it with paint
and interior, the price will be around $19K or better!
For more information, please call 503-855-4345 or 503-998-5499.

Customs are renowned for their use of color and special paints, and this
lovely Fairlane is no exception. It's brilliant silver pearl with candy
purple, and the difference between these colors and those you'd find on a
production car is remarkable. Of course, cool paint will only get you so
far if the bodywork isn't properly done, so every panel on this car was
sanded, buffed, and massaged until it was laser-straight. And with all that
bright trim, there's nowhere for misaligned panels to hide. Like any great
custom, the modifications are so subtle and well-executed, it's almost
impossible to tell where the changes are, because it looks so factory.
Everything is crisp and beautifully blended, and you'll need a stock
Fairlane next to this one to see all the modifications.
While the original Y-block V8 was no slouch in the horsepower department, this
custom is now powered by a healthy 351 cubic inch Windsor V8. Dressed in
bright Ford Blue, the engine bay is tidy and easy to service, and a nice
compromise between flashy upgrades and OEM equipment. There's chrome on the
air cleaner and valve covers, which is pretty much standard equipment in
any modified car these days, but to keep it reliable, all the original Ford
mechanicals remain in place.
The transmission is a C6 3-speed automatic turning the Fairlane's original
live rear axle. In fact, aside from modern tube shocks, the suspension and
steering systems remain 100% original. The original frame and floors have
been undercoated to control heat and noise, and the 351 exhales through a
pair of cherry bomb mufflers that were the only choice if you were a hot
rodder in the 1950s. Traditionalists will be pleased to see that it rolls
on color-matched steel wheels with spinner wheel covers and vintage-looking
Coker Classic wide whitewall bias-ply tires.
The interior is nicely finished in matching silver and purple fabrics, and
it's very tastefully done. With pleated seats, slick cloth and vinyl door
panels, and a dashboard painted to match the body, it's the perfect
complement to the body. All the original gauges have been retained and
remain fully functional, with a trio of auxiliary gauges installed in their
own panel under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash in a
nod to originality and authenticity, with a modern AM/FM/CD head unit right
below it so nothing had to be cut or modified. You'll also find that the
carpets have been expertly trimmed, with a heel pad for the driver and
matching binding on the edges, including around the custom shifter housing.
True customs are all about appearances, and the beautifully finished
bodywork on this Fairlane is a tribute to the early pioneers of
metalworking and paint technology, who were often years and years ahead of
the OEMs. With all the right period touches, this is a car that will make
guys who were there smile, and create a whole new generation of custom car
fans who understand that how a car looks is just as important as how it
runs. If you're one of those guys, get in touch today, because this car is
a lot of traditional fun for not a lot of money. Call now!
