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.

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!

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.

If there ever was an icon of the mid 50's in America, this would be right up there in contention! The "continental kit"...exterior spare mounted behind the decklid. The colors too are soooo 50's (hear my explanation of the source of that), and the car pioneered safety features far ahead of the others...like seatbelts, padded dash and visors, deep dish steering wheel and improved door locks. Too bad the safety equipment wasn't that well received...we know better now!

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!
