132559 / 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Custom

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.

1956 Ford Customline Victoria & Ranch Wagon Car Commercial
The 1956 Ford passenger car remained largely unchanged from the previous 1955 model aside from a slightly redesigned, more open grille. Big news for 1956 was the adoption of 12 volt electrical system across the entire Ford line. The Thunderbird Power mentioned in the clip comes from the V8 "Y" 292 CID engine rated at 193 hp. Of course this was the same engine used in the Thunderbirds of the day.

Mystery cars! Can you name them all? M2, 61 Chevy C10, 63 Impala.... ...enjoy? --- Nothing beats the satisfaction of chasing down and pulling old cars from their resting spots. There is a thrill in the hunt, and a joy in discovering a car that nobody else knows about. These are the cars that have been parked for whatever unknown reason ; a blown tranny, discarded in disgust, set aside for later. Many cars are sentenced to a particular spot with no release date in mind. They all have a story to tell, and one has to wonder who fell in love with the vehicle first and plunked down all their hard earned cash on the beast. Cracking open the door is like entering a ancient tomb, with the rusty hinges announcing your arrival. Every old car has it's own unique smell, some brands even possesing their own odors. Pop the hood next. Engine bays come in 3 types, complete, empty, and partially disassembled. A complete bay is the ultimate goal, for that means there is a small chance that the car might still run. An empty bay puts the car towards parts-car status, or full swap/update for sure. A half complete mill is the worst situation possible. One must play detective and figure out what went wrong and where all the missing parts currently reside. Pop the trunk, and it's time to go treasure hunting. The trunk can hold anything from missing parts and nos trim, to possums and many other shocking items forgotten over time. The adventures of moving a car that has not moved in decades is immediately present. Brakes stick, bearings freeze, tires are square and downright ignorant, and every immobile wreck instantly gains 1 ton over its still-mobile twin. Might be the 1800 pounds of old concrete in the trunk, the one the owner conveniently "lost" the keys for. Many times there is things in the way that were not present when the car was parked 45 years ago. Naturally, not all these cars go into the garage and come out show queens. Some get fixed, few get finished, and most get slated for parts service. The ones that do not meet one persons standards get pawned off on fresh hunters with less money and more ambition. Maybe the car will help out to get another twin out of the weeds also and back on the road. But one thing is for certain, once the derelict wreck is loaded, the standard question always asked is "Do you know of any more old cars around here?"

1955 FORD CROWN VIC HARDTOP COUPE - CLASSIC MID-FIFTIES STYLING
1955 brought out the new Ford design, a symetrical and stylish car which featured hooded headlights, fender spear that divided two tone colors, and with the Crown Vic that stainless steel " crown" that wrapped over the roof from side to side. This band was sometimes referred to as the " basket handle ". The low end Ford was the plain jane Mainline, then the Customline, and Fairlane. The Crown Vic was within the Fairlane model. The engine choices were an L head 6, 223 cid, with 120 hp, then the V8, 272 cid, that would produce either 162 hp or 182 hp. This particular Vic costs $2,202 at the dealer and has the optional continental kit and skirts which make the Vic look lower and longer. The interior always matched the two-tone paint scheme which has a harmonious effect. The Crown Vic name was revived in the eighties and was utilized taxi companies and police forces for years. Alas, the Crown Vic of today will cease production this year. No more Crown Vic cabs and law enforcement vehicles. Thanks very much for viewing this gorgeous '55 Crown Vic.

1956 Ford Fairlane Custom Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Old school customs are often an exercise in excess. Owners build outrageous machines to push the envelope of what's possible, trying to create something that hasn't been done before. That often results in highly individualized cars that lack mass appeal. That's why this 1956 Ford Fairlane is special: it's an old school custom that uses all of the traditional tricks without going overboard. This car is the perfect representation of what an average guy might have built in the late 1950s, with spectacular paint, a lot of custom trim, and a 351 Windsor under the hood. We don't often showcase true customs like this, but when we do, they're inevitably some of the most popular cars on the showroom floor. Customs are renowned for their use of color and special paints, and this lovely Fairlane is no exception. Its classic combination of red and white is exactly what I think of when someone says 1956 Ford Fairlane. Aside from a few barely noticeable chips here and there, the paint is beautiful. The body work is straight and clean, and with all that bright trim, there's nowhere for misaligned panels to hide. The gaps are extremely good considering the body is nearly 60 years old. Everything is crisp and beautifully blended. A big part of this custom's look is the trim. All Fairlanes received the dramatic sweeping side trim that stretches from the headlights to the edge of the rear quarters, and it provides the ideal break point for the two-tone color combination. The grille, and both front and rear bumpers have been recently re-chromed, and they're near show quality. This custom is powered by a healthy 351 Windsor, which is a reliable, powerful engine that works extremely well in this custom. The engine bay is nicely detailed, from the paint on the underside of the hood, to the painted fender walls and core support. There's chrome on the air cleaner and valve covers, which is pretty much standard equipment in any modified car these days. The list of quality components under the hood include an Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, chrome coil, billet distributor, new wiring, and a period correct 12volt battery. Up front is the beautiful aluminum radiator, and underneath that is the trans cooler. The heater motor and components look to be in great condition, and the A/C compressor is polished. There is cruise control, power steering and power brakes. The transmission is a C6 automatic turning the Fairlane's Ford 8" rear end. Out back you will find the springs, shocks and rear sway bar make the ride very smooth. The gas tank is in great condition, with an electric fuel pump installed. The Exhaust system is new, and you will find new brake and fuel lines. The emergency brake cables are in good condition as well. Up front, a GM A-Body suspension has been grafted in, and it looks fantastic. The bushings and ball joints are newer, the steering gear is in good shape and there is a front sway bar as well. The floorboards are clean and painted, free of dirt, rust and undercoating. The frame is in beautiful condition as well, showing all of the spot welds, with no rust or pitting. The previous owner built a couple of heat shields for the Glasspack mufflers, showing how well cared for the undercarriage of this Fairlane is. Check out the clean rockers! And while you're over there, look right behind the front wheels. Those are the electric poppers for the doors. Just hit them with your toe, and the doors open right up. The interior is nicely finished in matching red and white fabrics, and it's very tastefully done. With power seats, a tilt/telescoping wheel, A/C, heat, tunes and VDO gauges, what more could you ask for? This is one clean and comfortable interior! Out back, the trunk is finished with matching carpet and a spare tire. The continental kit is just another bonus. With the airbrushed "At the Hop" artwork, this Fairlane is ready for a night out at the drive in! There's easily twice the asking price wrapped up in this gorgeous custom. Like most customs of the '50s, the mechanicals were reliable and sturdy, and functional and clean is the name of the game. True customs are all about appearances, and the beautifully finished bodywork on this Fairlane is a tribute to the early pioneers of metalworking and paint technology. With all the right touches, this is a car that will make guys who were there smile, and create a whole new generation of custom car fans who understand that how a car looks is just as important as how it runs. If you're one of those guys, get in touch today, because this car is a lot of traditional fun for not a lot of money. Call now! 7 Days a week 248-974-9513 www.vanguardmotorsales.com

1955 Ford Crown Victoria Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! 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.
