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 Fairlane Crown Victoria Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
MOTOR SIZE CORRECTION
Any time we get stunning 50's 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 Fairlane Crown has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect car for anyone who wants an exceptionally well done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves.
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 two-tone red and white, the cars paint features an excellent shine with no major flaws or damage. The red and white color scheme gives the car a classic feeling. Panel gaps are just how you would expect, the door lips and jambs are clean and rust free. We were stunned by the quality of the stainless trim on this car, it is truly exceptional. Both the front and rear chrome bumpers are beautiful as well. A hood mounted Ford emblem and "Fairlane" script are centered on the hood and line up perfectly with the hood ornament. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows down the side of the car, and the great looking Ford emblems with "Crown Victoria" badges are centered on each door. Ahead of the front fender openings, V8 emblems announce the presence of a Ford Y block. The Crown Victoria exclusive chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim is in truly awesome condition. On the right side of the trunk a "Ford-O-Matic" script announces the presence of a hydraulic transmission.
As the body tag reads, this Fairlane is a top of the line car that features an excellent running correct 312 Y-block V8. You can see the "Thunderbird" polished valve covers, aluminum intake, custom made ceramic powder coated headers by Red's Headers, an Edelbrock carb and the gorgeous air cleaner. The heater blower motor and duct work have been restored. In front of the engine the generator and cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss black radiator. Power steering and power front disc brakes are also included.
The frame and underside of the car are solid! There have been a few repairs to the floor boards and rocker on the driver side, but the passenger side has been untouched. Any repairs that were done, were done beautifully. The original rear end is present along with 2 inch lowering blocks. The 2 inch aluminum dual Exhaust and Smithy mufflers sound awesome. Behind the oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic 2-speed transmission. The rear drum brakes appear to be in excellent condition.
Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been excellently done. A new 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 the speedometer, fuel and temperature gauges, warning lights and a gear selector window. In the center of the dash you'll find a clock, and a unique AM radio. Updates include a 1956 Ford steering column and the steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring. The restored trunk features a new mat.
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.

Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate here.
132558 / 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cyzumlm
You've got to appreciate the guys who go all-out on a custom car build, ignoring costs and chasing a dream. This 1968 Camaro convertible is such a car. Packed with so many custom items and delivering performance more akin to a new Z06 Corvette than a vintage F-body, it's a cost-no-object build from the pros at Littlefield Customs. Spectacular in every regard, from the paint, to the potent LS3 under the hood, to the trick all-independent suspension, this car has already won a ton of major awards, and is absolutely the fastest, nastiest, most beautifully built early Camaro anywhere, at any price.
The stunning two-tone charcoal gray and root beer brown paintjob has to be seen in person to be believed—literally, as there are also ghost stripes on there that are almost invisible on a computer screen. Obviously there's a lot of metallic and pearl in the paint, and the net effect is a car that shimmers in the sun and seems to change color as you walk around it. And the combination of the charcoal gray and rootbeer is innovative—you simply won't see another car like this anywhere, and people respond to it in a way that we haven't seen since we finished "Maximum Effect."
No pro-touring car is complete without a state-of-the-art engine, and the LS3 based V8 under the hood is a perfect example. On the Dyno, this engine cranked out 525 horsepower and 462 pounds of torque, and delivers blistering performance now that it has found a home in this Camaro. On top it features an extended engine cover that has been custom painted to match the body and covers the intake and coil packs. Ceramic-coated long-tube headers feed a 2.5-inch stainless Exhaust by Magnaflow, which sounds absolutely spine-chilling on the road.
And yet, as spectacular as the bodywork and engine are, the chassis is where most of this car's greatest modifications have been made. Up front, a modern C5 Corvette suspension has been grafted onto the Camaro's subframe, resulting in razor-sharp handling and stunning braking performance with the Z06-spec rotors and calipers. Out back, a Mustang Cobra independent rear suspension has been installed, featuring 3.55 gears and 13.5-inch brakes. The transmission is a T56 6-speed manual, with a deep overdrive for easy highway cruising. A complete Air Ride system that features automatic leveling and infrared sensors has been installed at all four corners. What's better, this car features near perfect 50.5 front/49.5 rear weight distribution, which is crucial to performance. Wheels are 18-inch billet hoops from Boyd Coddington, wearing Sumimoto performance radials.
The black leather interior is a combination of modern Corvette and vintage Camaro, just like the rest of the car. The heated front buckets are from a Corvette, and feature 6-way power adjustment. The dash has been stuffed with digital gauges in place of the original analog pieces, although the cool auxiliary gauges on the center console have been retained and restored. The center console houses a T-handle shifter for the 6-speed, as well as the power window switches. A little higher up, you'll find a completely custom entertainment/navigation system by Kenwood and Kicker, with an integrated Garmin GPS, as well as controls for the automatic climate control system. In the fully upholstered trunk you'll find the storage tank and compressor for the suspension and the amplifier for the entertainment system.
RK Motors Charlotte has seen some pretty amazing hardware recently, and each time we proclaim that we've discovered the ultimate pro-touring machine. And each time we do that, another car comes along and raises the bar yet again. This Camaro is fresh and ready to compete at the highest levels. If you're an early Camaro fan and the stock stuff just doesn't do it for you, here's one that anyone can see is something special. Call now!

132563 / 1972 Pontiac GTO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7apck5f
One of the most aggressive looking GTO's ever built the 1972 model was once again an options package and had a pile of comfort and style while retaining much of the bite of its forebears. This very cool Lucerne Blue number retains all of its original body panels, its original 400ci engine, is exactly as the Pontiac Historical Society documents lay it out and it's a four speed - that's the way you want one. Great cars to drive these tigers are collectables on the rise!
Underneath, you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis. This isn't a full frame off restoration - it didn't need one! Those are the original, clean floors, rust free frame and original rear end and handling package suspension. A quick evaluation is all that's necessary to see the original brake and fuel systems were up to their tasks and required no major replacement. That's the original undercoating you're looking at! So many of these cars died an early death it's refreshing to see one that's so clean!
Deep blue paint covers the rock solid, original exterior. The front end is definitely the best part with its straight body color bumper, excellent deeply inset grilles and aggressive hood. The GTO exclusive fenders with rear air extractors add interest to the sides of the car and look awesome with the mint Rally II wheels and new Firestone G70x15 Wide Ovals. The body is straight - care taken during its cosmetic restoration is evident. The trim and chrome is in excellent shape and is mostly original to the car. Bodywork was minimal and the finish work was done to a high standard. This is an attractive car with no hidden gremlins.
Comfortable black vinyl seats with new covers are the order of the day in the restored interior. The sculpted, clean dash pad covers the fully functional and clean original gauge cluster and nice original engine turned finish panels. Original door panels with original armrests are very nice, interior chrome is original and excellent and there's new carpet at your feet. The factory Formula steering wheel is in excellent shape and feels great in your hands. The center console with its Hurst shifter is also a clean original - there are no complaints from in here. The cabin's simply a great place to spend time!
Open the trunk to find a brand new Wide Oval mounted to a fifth, mint Rally II wheel. There's a new mat on the floor, the proper jack, new weather-stripping on the rail and a fresh coat of spatter paint underneath. Like the interior and undercarriage, there are no problems and no surprises.
Pop the hood and find the original, numbers matching engine in a detailed engine bay. That's the correct original air cleaner on top of the rebuilt mill. Some liberty was taken with the internals as the compression's up to around 10:1 and there's a Ram Air IV spec cam to get the power up to where you'd expect a 400 to be. Those are original chrome valve covers on the motor, a restored vacuum Booster and master cylinder on the firewall and a new battery and correct spring clamp cables tucked away in the corner. New belts and hoses (with correct tower clamps) are reliable replacements in this excellent driver!
Solid, original body and engine cars are tough to come by. So are desirable cars with great color combinations and manual transmissions. And, so are cars which are still affordable! This car's all three and it's only going to get more valuable over time! Don't wait on this one!
