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.
1946 Ford Woody Stationwagon
Not often you get to see a woody station wagon in this state of
restoration! Amazing..just as if you drove it directly from the showroom
in 1946. You can imagine the waiting lines for new cars after
WW2....people would pay a premium for one of the few cars that eminated
from the factory at this point. You can see how prominent wood was in the
construction of the vehicle..that would change dramatically in subsequent
1969 Olds Cutlass Supreme Hardtop (Grn)
Beautiful condition....paint, vinyl top, and interior! Green was a popular
color at this time..this was one of the many shades of that color that
appeared. Note the bench seat with center arm rest, automatic on the
column, power windows and air conditioning. A luxurious, perfectly sized
1963 Pontiac LeMans Convertible
Nice car that looks like it's in fairly original condition with the
exception of the floor shifter. Pontiac had an ingenious way to develop a
4 cylinder engine based on the engine in this car..it simply chopped an
entire cylinder bank off the engine. This car has the 326 c.i. V8. The
transmission was located toward the rear of the car as a way to make the
car inherently more balanced.
1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible Blue
Nice car, very typical of the cruisers that dotted the landscape in the
late 50's! This was the third year of this styling cycle that was based on
the radical at the time 55 Chevy. However, Chevy kept it fresh with that
dramatic anodized panel on the rear quarter! Gas filler cleverly hidden in
the left tailight!
1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria- Runs and Drives Very Well -SOLD!
This little 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria 2 door hardtop is ready for paint.
We have spent the better part of a year off and on doing the body work. We

compartment has been very well detailed. It runs, drives and shifts very
well. Some of the work that has been done is as follows: floor pans
replaced, nosed and decked and completely cleaned the engine compartment.
Powered by a 292/312 V-8, it is a Ford-o-matic tranny, the radio and heater
work, and it has a wild set of pipes. Most if not all the trim is put
together and the vinyl seats are good but not stock. You can see some of
the trim and parts in some of the video.
Tracer coats have been sprayed on the trunk area. MACCO has big to paint
both colors for $1500 and have promised to do a good job. The original
colors are Peacock Blue and White.

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 CROWN VIC HARDTOP COUPE - CLASSIC MID-FIFTIES STYLING
1955 brought out the new Ford design, a symetrical and stylish car which
featured hooded headlights, fender spear that divided two tone colors, and
with the Crown Vic that stainless steel " crown" that wrapped over the roof
from side to side. This band was sometimes referred to as the " basket
handle ". The low end Ford was the plain jane Mainline, then the
Customline, and Fairlane. The Crown Vic was within the Fairlane model.
The engine choices were an L head 6, 223 cid, with 120 hp, then the V8,
272 cid, that would produce either 162 hp or 182 hp. This particular Vic
costs $2,202 at the dealer and has the optional continental kit and skirts
which make the Vic look lower and longer. The interior always matched the
two-tone paint scheme which has a harmonious effect. The Crown Vic name
was revived in the eighties and was utilized taxi companies and police
forces for years. Alas, the Crown Vic of today will cease production this
year. No more Crown Vic cabs and law enforcement vehicles. Thanks very
much for viewing this gorgeous '55 Crown Vic.
