This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama, Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George Barris and John Force among others. Body modifications include a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55 Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon and Cadillac wheel covers. The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460 cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460 aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s with Doug's Headers and a Modine radiator rounding out the package. An A-arm front suspension houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears, Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. Inside, 1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized '56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make you smile.

1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified
with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest
looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no
secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was
built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.

1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969
Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago,
and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural
rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't
want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another
similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could
replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis
from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we
decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car,
including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass.
We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that
we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and
drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and
substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it
used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell
people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated"
by another Fairlane sedan!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you
think! Thanks for watching!

Any time we get stunning 50s era Detroit metal into our Vanguard Motor
Sales showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesn't
stick around very long. This 1955 Ford Crown Victoria has been
painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect
car for anyone who wants an accurate, exceptionally well done restoration
for half the price of doing it themselves.
Undoubtedly a six figure project, this car takes everything that was great
about the first generation Fairlane and wraps it in outstanding
workmanship. From top to bottom, the body of this car is as straight as
when it rolled out of the factory. Dressed in a classic red and white
combination, the paint features an excellent shine with no major flaws or
damage. The margins, door and trunk lips, and rockers are straight, clean
and rust free, without a wave or ripple in sight. The front bumper has been
recently rechromed and the rest of the trim has been nicely restored. This
Crown Victoria screams quality. 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.
This Fairlane is a top of the line car that features a 312 Y-block. An
Edelbrock carburetor sits below the air cleaner, and Thunderbird Special
polished valve covers shine on either side. Exhaust manifolds, a 6 volt battery, power
brakes, re-cored and repainted radiator and the heater motor and duct work
are all present under the hood. And check out the underside of that hood,
what a paint job! Even the hood hinges have a beautiful coat of shiny white
paint on them. The core support, inner fenders and firewall are all painted
beautifully. Not a detail has been missed in this engine bay! The car even
features a correct "See Clear" windshield washer fluid bag and a final
approval Ford inspection stamp.
The frame and underside of the car are clean and well cared for. The
floors are solid with no signs of rust and the frame is straight without
any indication of damage. Out back you will find a stock rear end, new
shocks and springs that are not new, but still in great condition. A newer
Exhaust system with Smithy mufflers
was included in the restoration. The front suspension has been freshly
painted and the steering gear is in great condition. Behind the oil pan
sits the peppy and fun to drive, 3-on-the-Tree transmission.
Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone red and white
bench seats have been excellently restored. The fresh 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 clear gauges. In
the center of the dash you'll find the controls for the Magic Aire system,
clock, and radio. The locking glove box features cool Ford script. The
steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring, is absolutely gorgeous.
Beautiful black carpet flows throughout the interior to tie everything
together and complete the look. The nicely painted and clean trunk features
a mat and a spare tire.
This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a
high level of detail and carefully maintained. If you wanted to restore a
car to this level on your own, you'd be well into the 6 figure range and
probably sink years into the project. Beautiful, solid, well done cars like
this don't come along too often and given the attention it draws in our
showroom, I expect it to be rolling out the door before too long. Call now!
