Great car, great paint and two tone color combination. The trim on the side facilitates this imaginative use of color. The decorative chrome trim over the top of the car mirrored on the inside was an interesting styling touch. The interior piece was painted trim color...the original would have been chrome. The dash had changed markedly from the 1955 model, and now a padded dash was optional.
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
exterior fashionable, but the interior is beautiful too! This car brought
luxury to the low priced field!
1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner
This was the quintessential color scheme for 1956! I had a tie that had
the same coloration! These cars were very liberating from the dull postwar
models..Detroit had become alive with color! This one is restored very
well..too bad the hood wasn't up to show the 312 c.i. Thunderbird V8.
This would make an excellent touring car!
1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible WhtRed Ren061012
Colorful two tone exteriors and interiors...that was the name of the game
for Ford in 1956. This is a particular stunning combination of colonial
white and fiesta red. Safety was prominent too...with many safety features
offered. However, the public didn't seem to respond eagerly to the
emphasis on safety...it's time was not yet right.
1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria RedWht
Beautiful condition! The colors available with this car were mind boggling
at the time...so different from the staid cars of the 40's and early 50's.
The molding distinctive with the Crown Victoria was a stroke of genius!
Notice how well the interior is color coordinated with the outside paint

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.

1956 Ford Victoria - Nice Classic with Original Interior
I thought you would like a look at this nice 1956 Ford Victoria. It's
looking real good in it's two-tone blue and white paint and matching
original interior. It's powered by what appears to be the original 292
Thunderbird V8. It's got a little wear here and there, but it will make
someone a fine cruiser. Thanks for watching and commenting, we appreciate

1954 FORD CUSTOMLINE TWO DOOR -- LAST YEAR OF '52 REDESIGN
The redesign of the 1952 Fords lasted till '54 and what a run it was. Over
half a million Fords sold each year of this facelift. Of course then
again, Ford and Chevy waged a pricewar that eventually killed off the
independents: Hudson, Nash, Studebaker, Kaiser, etc., that couldn't afford
to compete pricewise. Ford outsold Chevy anyway this year by 22,381 units
mostly because Ford has a V8 and Chevy didn't until 1955. This Customline
model was in the middle with the Ford Mainline beneath and the Crestline
above. The new Y-block overhead valve V-8 engine replaced the long running
Ford and Mercury flatheads and these new Y-blocks were more powerful. 110
horses vs. the new 130 bhp. Ford also this year is the first low-priced
car to have ball joint front suspension that replaced the old kingpins.
Options included the Ford-O-Matic auto transmission, power steering,
brakes, windows, and a 4 way power seat. 14 colors and two tone combos
were also available. This Customline would cost you about $1,700 and
either had an L-head six cylinder with 223 cid and 115 hp, or that new V8,
239 cid with 130 horses. As an attractive Ford this is with a three year
run of styling, the 1955 Fords would even be more attractive with an even
furthur increase in sales. Thanks very much for viewing this 1954 Ford

This 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria is a 2004 AACA National Senior First
Prize Award winner that has been painstakingly restored to its top of the
Ford line status.
From top to bottom, the body of this car is as straight as when it rolled
out of Fords San Jose California factory. Dressed in its original Ford code
KE Buckskin Brown and Snowshoe White, the cars paint is restored to better
than factory condition and features an excellent shine with no major flaws
or damage. All of the chrome and trim has been restored to like new
condition to further enhance the feeling of luxury. The front and rear
curved bumpers feature a liquid shine and include factory front and rear
bumper guards. The concave grille aligns perfectly with the stainless trim
on the edge of the hood and displays the cars 2004 AACA Senior Award
plaque. New marker lights combine with the Crown Victoria exclusive browed
headlights to preview the stacked light designs of the 1960s. 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. Tinted glass that is
in excellent shape all around is accented by the Crown Victoria exclusive
chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim.
A correct "Power Pack" equipped 272 Y-block V8 sits below a 4 barrel
carburetor and a factory correct air cleaner housing that is complete with
a service instructions decal. A correct intake manifold sandwiched between
Ford V8 decaled correct valve covers is painted orange to match the block.
Mounted on top of that intake is a correct gloss black coil that runs power
to a correct points distributor. To the right of the motor, Ford's first
year factory option air conditioning system is painted gloss black and
stamped with correct decals. In front of the engine a gloss black generator
and pulley mounted 3 blade cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss
black radiator. On the left side of the motor, neatly ran stainless fuel
lines complement a silver brake reservoir and silver factory optioned power
steering reservoir. The car even features a correct "See Clear" windshield
washer fluid bag and a final approval Ford inspection stamp.
Under the car, the floors are solid with no signs of rust and the frame is
straight without any indication of damage with all the parts being
functional and well-maintained. The satin black frame is bolted to a body
color floorpan with Stainless fasteners and features an A-arm factory
suspension up front complete with coil springs and drum brakes. Behind the
orange oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a fresh satin black driveshaft and axle. The Exhaust system features a set of aggressive
glasspack-style mufflers and stainless turn downs at the rear of the car
for a gnarly burble. Keeping the car to the pavement is a set of wide
whitewall G78-15 Coker Classic radials on the original color-matched
Fairlane 15 inch steel wheels with gorgeous full wheel covers that feature
highly detailed ford logos on a red inlay.
Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been
excellently restored and likely look and feel better than the day they came
from the factory. 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 a final production year 120mph swept
speedometer above fuel and temperature gauges, warning lights and a gear
selector window. In the center of the dash you'll find a clock, controls
for Fords new for 1955 Ford Matic Aire System air conditioning and a unique
AM radio. Great looking door panels flow back from the dash and house
chrome handles for the door and window. The steering wheel, complete with
chrome horn ring, is absolutely gorgeous and would give way to Fords first
dished wheel for the sake of safety in 1956. New carpet flows throughout
the interior to tie everything together and complete the look.
This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a
high level of detail and carefully maintained. Call now
