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.
1958 Edsel Villager Station Wagon
Ford, being the station wagon king, could not refrain from making a wagon
version for Edsel! Fairly rare, according to the owner, only 62 now known
A three tone color combination...not sure if it's original. Note the
continental tire on the rear tailgate. Very unusual..have never seen
another. Pushbutton automatic, drum type speedometer.
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
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.
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!
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.

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!

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
