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
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. Call now!

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.
1964 Ford Fairlane 2 Door Post Barn Find
Ex drag car from the 60's. Ran at key stone drag way. Parked in a barn in
the early 70's. Looks like a thunderbolt because back half the car has been
narrowed the way ford did it in 64. Stock frame rails and trunk. I thought
the car was a thunderbolt when first found. Serial number comes up as a 6
cylinder 3 speed standard bench car.Car has 330000 orginal miles and
orginal paint. I dont not know what the car had in it for a motor when it
was raced. When i found the car was no motor and a tranny in the trunk. Was
a couple of time stickers from bison drag ways and key stone drag ways.
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!

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bpkdb59
This fully detailed, road ready 1940 Ford De Luxe features a potent small
block Chevy engine, a modern sport tuned suspension, a custom boxed frame
and updated interior amenities wrapped in one of the coolest vehicles ever
produced. In 2008, this Ford De Luxe wagon was completely restored by
Treehouse Woods Automotive Woodworking. After almost two years of bodywork
and carpentry, the refurbishing was complete and the car was re-fitted with
a correct Birds Eye Maple body and the smooth and ripple free metal fenders
and cowl were covered in GM Light Mesh Brown. Flip up the hood latch and
you'll find a strong and reliable 350 Chevrolet crate engine that includes
a Weber 4 barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, a Painless
Wiring harness, Accel Super Stock wires and a Griffin aluminum radiator
complete with an electric fan. Housed in the boxed Fat Man frame you'll
find a newly refurbished 700R4 automatic transmission, a bulletproof Ford 9
inch rear end with 3.73 gears, a double A-arm suspension with tubular
control arms, stainless coil over shocks, a heavy duty sway bar and power
GM disc and drum brakes. Sanderson Exhaust manifolds feed into a true dual Exhaust system with great sounding turbo mufflers. At the corners, traditional body
matched steel wheels with chrome center caps and chrome trim rings wear
205/70/14 front and 235/75/15 rear Firestone wide white wall tires. Inside,
the maroon leather bench seats are in excellent shape and contrast nicely
against the Birds Eye Maple body and Light Mesh Brown dash which includes
aftermarket Haneline gauges and aluminum knobs for the Vintage Air system.
A body matched steering column includes a banjo style steering wheel with a
"V8" hood button that has been customized to include a Birds Eye Maple rim.
This 1940 Ford De Luxe wagon is exceptionally well done and utilizes top
shelf components for a completely street ready ride and looks spectacular
from any angle.
