1956 Ford Victoria 312 Y block V8 - Country Classic Cars
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1956 Ford Victoria. It's powered by the 312 Y-block V8. The paint is slick, the trim is looking good and it's a nice straight car. It has a few custom touches, like the chrome eyelids on the headlights, lake pipes, and custom interior. It's a pretty cool old hot rod. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

1956 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN -- STILL IN THE FAMILY
You think this Town Sedan has been restored? Nope. It's an original survivor with low mileage and still in the original family. The design of the '56 Ford is just a tad different from the '55 Ford. And this two-year design update had a direct impact on accelerating sales. For instance, the '56 Ford Town Sedan sold 224,872 units for this model only. Ford built 1.4 million cars this year but still trailed Chevy's 1.56 million units. Ford, ( and Mercury ), offered the seatbelt and other safety extras as an option. Engines available for Fords went from a straight 6, 223 cid with 137 bhp., to V8's: 272 / 173, 292 / 200, 312 / 215. This Town Sedan was purchased new in Lincoln, Nebraska by the uncle of the present owner who recovered it from storage and brought it back to St. Louie. I always have an infinity for mid-fifties Ford products and so, of course, this one caught my eye. This Ford is so perfect looking that it appears to be brand new. The paint and chrome are outstanding. The interior is flawless. What a survivor this is. So, enjoy watching this pristine example and, as always, thanks very much for viewing this 1956 Ford Fairlane Town Sedan.
1948 Ford 59L Factory relieved Flathead Offenhauser and Stromberg 97s Startup
This block for this engine was found in Sedona, AZ. It was transported to MN, bore walls were measured by ultrasonics, magnafluxed, boiled out, decked, etc. Then Tom Porter of Blaine MN built the short block in 2011. Displacement raised from 239 to 265 inches cubed. Offenhauser equipment came from Hooked on Classics in Watertown MN. The Columbia 2 speed chassis was built at Cliff Helling's shop in Watertown MN and the body was restored and painted by Dan Craag. More Video will be added as the project progresses. The plan is the build a nostalgia '34 Roadster with pressurized fuel system as it might have been built in the 50s. .
