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 have replaced the floor pans, it has been nosed and decked and the engine 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.
For $8K, you can have a running, driving 1956 Ford Victoria will all the hard work done. Paint it yourself or have MAACO do it. Finish the trim out and you will have yourself a great little Ford to cruise around in this summer. OR, I will finish it (done correctly) and it's yours for $20K+!

How to shift a 56 Mercury Overdrive
Dev puts the gears to the Fairlane while Shay rocks the T-Bird on the way to the Napanee Valley Cruisers weekly cruise nite.
Thanks to OSR Performance, 677PSE and my kids.
I couldn't be a prouder Dad.
Dad took me for a spin in his 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. After stopping at Buffalo Bill's Mansion and Scout's Rest Ranch, I ask him for a quick demonstration of the Ford's engine power.
Update: A few viewers have kindly suggested (or rudely insisted) that the engine is misfiring. Since I don't know much about cars, this one in particular, I asked Dad the last time I talked to him. He told me that it was not misfiring, and that the rough idle was characteristic of the Y-block engines Ford was using for these cars. He did inform me, however, that there is an Exhaust leak, and that may be what people are hearing and mistaking for a misfire.
He then said, "I know that explanation won't be good enough for some people who are convinced my engine just HAS to be missing. I don't care; it runs well enough for my tastes."
Update 2: I'm going to ask all the functionally retarded members of the YouTube community to please consider the following:
If you are a jerk to me, expect me to make fun of you, then block you. I'm not putting up with it. You can hate me, hate my dad, hate his car, hate this video all you want--just thumbs down my video and move on with your life. Seriously. No one cares. At all. I put this up on a whim for people who might enjoy seeing a '56 Fairlane. If you aren't one of those people, go find something you do like.
