1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible BluWht

Beautiful condition...292 c.i. Thunderbird V8, continental kit in the back, Fordomatic...what a great cruiser! Looks absolutely factory fresh! Ford introduced safety equipment this year, most of which was optional. The deep dish steeringwheel and door locks were standard, but the padded dash, padded visors and seatbelts were options. Those options were not a dramatic success..safety didn't sell at that point.

You certainly have to appreciate this "work of art"! This car really was Edsel's baby, working hard to have it produced. The design so captivated him, he had a personal model designed and he drove it to his Palm Beach home..and the comments of onlookers assured him it had a future! It had a V12 engine that used many of the parts of the flathead V8. Note the stylish trunk to the rear of the car.

1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible CoralWht TheVillages122014
A beautiful and dramatic color combination, but not unusual at the time because Ford seemed to have an endless palate of cool colors! The car marked the beginning of an awareness of safety equipment at Ford. Too bad it wasn't more poplar...but it was an extra...I think safety equipment has to be part of the regular equipment of the car to become popular. At the time, people didn't seem to want to pay extra for it!
