132722 / 1956 Ford Mainline

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c7xl4vj Packing a fresh 302 V8 and sporting a host of well-done custom touches, this fully restored sedan draws big crowds and big compliments wherever it goes! From the top of its smooth white roof to the bottom of its super cool teal body, the Mainline is much straighter than when it rolled out of a Ford showroom 55 years ago and features a good looking coat of paint with very few flaws. Naturally, that straight body provides a level of fit and finish which is much better than factory tolerances and allows all doors, windows and other moving parts to function fluidly and correctly. The glossy paint combines with a nosed and decked profile to give the car a classic rockabilly feeling which simply can't be matched by pristine Bel Airs and Victorias of the same ilk. The cars reliable but basic 6-cylinder has been swapped for a new Jasper 302 replacement block which has only seen 1,000 miles of road time and provides excellent throttle response. At the top of the engine, a louvered chrome air filter feeds a Holley 4-barrel carburetor which is bolted to an Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake. At the front of the engine, fresh V-belts spin billet pulleys which are attached to a slick chrome alternator, a Sanden AC compressor and durable billet brackets. And at the sides of the engine, ceramic coated long tube headers send spent gases into a true dual Exhaust system. Fire is provided by a Pertronix Flame Thrower coil which utilizes a traditional points distributor to send spark through bright blue Accel Hi-Temp Super Stock wires. And cooling is provided by a Walker radiator which is equipped with fresh hoses and a billet overflow tank. The cars fully rebuilt suspension benefitted from a significant drop which provides an unbeatable stance, and a number of small tweaks increase both performance and drivability. Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C4 3-speed automatic transmission and a bulletproof Ford nine inch rear end, and braking is provided by upfitted manual front discs and traditional manual rear drums. At the center of the car, an aluminized true dual Exhaust system utilizes Smithys turbo mufflers to create a fitting gnarly burble while a new stainless fuel tank sends dino juice through new stainless fuel lines. Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a spectacular set of bright red 15 inch steel wheels which ride on 165/70 front and 215/70 rear Firestone Silvertown wide whitewall radials and wear pristine Ford hubcaps inside of fresh stainless trim rings. This awesome Mainlines tasteful and comfortable two-tone interior is a classy reminder of the days when style and appeal were the central focus of car design. In front of the passengers, a beautifully restored two-tone dash hangs a functional Ford clock above pristine stainless trim which houses a full assortment of Auto Meter gauges and a modern Pioneer CD player. At the sides of the car, great looking two-tone door panels flow perfectly around smooth, painted window frames, and hang correct chrome handles above restored two-tone armrests. In the middle of the car, completely rebuilt and recovered green and white bench seats provide the perfect spot for main street cruise nights; and in front of the driver, a correctly restored Mainline steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a billet turn signal stalk and billet accessory knobs. Below the seats, excellent looking dark green carpet lies under color-matched, Ford crested floor mats and a slick Lokar shifter. Above the seats a like-new white headliner leads the eye to cool rear speakers which wear stainless covers that are crafted into music notes. Below those speakers, the cars restored trunk features a correct mat, a fifth red wheel with a brand new spare tire and a re-located fuel filler neck. This rare and exceptionally clean 1956 Ford Mainline offers the best of both worlds: a fully restored car at a fraction of the cost of doing it yourself, and a unique hot rod that will likely be the only one of its kind at any show you attend.

more at http://auto-parts.quickfound.net/ Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1955_Ford See also: Ford Mainline, Ford Customline, Ford Fairlane, Ford Crown Victoria Skyliner, Ford Crown Victoria, and Ford Courier The Ford line of cars gained a new body for 1955 to keep up with surging Chevrolet, although it remained similar to the 1952 Ford underneath. The Mileage Maker I6 was bumped up to 223 CID (3.7 L) for 120 hp (89 kW) and the new-for-1954 Y-block V8 was now offered in two sizes: Standard Fords used a 272 CID (4.5 L) version with 162 hp (121 kW) with 2-barrel carburetor and single Exhaust or 182 hp with 4-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, but the large 292 CID (4.8 L) unit from the Thunderbird was also offered, boasting 193 hp (144 kW). Apart from the engine changes, customers were sure to notice the new Fairlane, which replaced the Crestline as the top trim level, while a new Crown Victoria-style featured a chrome "basket handle" across the familiar (and continued) "Victoria" hardtop roof, which originally appeared on the Mercury XM-800 concept car. This use of a styling feature to visually separate the front of the passenger compartment from the rear reappeared on the 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird, the Ford Fairmont Futura and Mercury Zephyr Z-7 coupes. The company now boasted three different rooflines, the tall two-pillar Mainline, Customline, and Fairlane, lower chrome-pillar Crown Victoria, and pillarless hardtop Victoria. The "Skyliner" acrylic glass roof was still offered, this time only on the Crown Victoria model. New brakes were used 11-inch (280 mm) drums. Also, Fords had a new frame with five cross members. The Fords introduced for 1955 also featured the panoramic windshields found on Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Cadillacs the previous year. With this panoramic windshield the A-pillars have a vertical angle. this gives the driver more panoramic visibility. For the first time, Ford offered seat belts as a dealer option (not factory installed, with instructions provided by a Service Bulletin). Also new for 1955 was Ford's first factory installed air conditioner. This "Select Aire" option featured an integrated heater core and evaporator coil unit within the dash and cold air discharge vents located on top of the dash on either side of the radio speaker. The "Select Aire" design was carried over to the 1956 models with slightly different cold air vents in the same location as on the 1955 models. The condenser was mounted in front of the radiator as in later cars. Station wagons were offered as a separate series for the first time in 1955. The Ranch Wagon and Custom Ranch Wagon were 2 door wagons whilst the Country Sedan and Country Squire models were 4 doors wagons, the latter featuring wooden appliqué side mouldings. 1956 The eggcrate grille featured on the 1955 cars was widened into a series of rectangles for 1956, but this subtle exterior change was nothing compared to Ford's adoption of a 12-volt electrical system across the line. The Crown Victoria Skyliner's sales were plummeting with just 603 made, and it would be replaced by a convertible the next year. A new addition at midyear was the "Town Victoria" 4-door hardtop model which, along with the new Customline 2-door hardtop, were meant to compete with the Chevrolet Bel Air. The Parklane, a Fairlane trimmed Tudor station wagon, was added to compete with the Chevrolet Nomad. Idiot lights for oil pressure and ammerter were standard. The Lifeguard safety package — consisting of seat belts, a padded dashboard, a deep-dish steering wheel, and a breakaway rearview mirror — was introduced. The option was a slow-seller. The optional air conditioner, which remained expensive and thus a slow seller, was totally revamped; the compressor was now housed beneath the hood and the cooling vents were moved to atop the dashboard(it could not be ordered on the Thunderbird). The 1955 Ford was also produced by Ford Australia...

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





This is Love... Baby drivin' the 1955 Ford Country Sedan
Yea, this is what love is.. Woo Hoo..





132762 / 1999 Shelby Series 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cyssvyp This 1999 Shelby Series 1 is one of the late production Shelby Series 1 automobiles, actually produced in 2005. With just 440 miles on the clock, it is in virtually new condition in every measurable way and is the one to own if an investment-grade Shelby is on your wish list. The custom-built bodywork was designed to evoke the muscular 2-seater curves of the original Cobra, but still have its own look. With so few miles, this car is completely unmarked, and even areas like the nose and rockers show zero evidence of road rash. Panel fit is exemplary, as you would expect from a hand-crafted work of art, and the paint finish is deep and lustrous. In short, this car speaks for itself, and the result attracts a crowd every time you stop. Power comes from a highly tuned Oldsmobile 4.0 liter V8 which was specially chosen for this project due to its cutting-edge technology and high power-to-weight ratio. Making 320 horsepower and 290 pounds of torque in this application, the silky-smooth powerplant definitely isn't from your father's Oldsmobile. The engine bay is race grade throughout, from the fully exposed pushrod suspension to the silicone hoses, there's very little evidence that this was a production-line vehicle. You'll also dig things like the fabricated aluminum overflow tank, the lovely TIG welds along the firewall, and the awesome Shelby snake eye logo embossed on the underside of the hood's support structure. And it's all in perfect, unused condition, with everything fully functional. Like the Corvette, the engine spins a torque tube connected to a slick-shifting 6-speed ZF transaxle specially modified for the Series 1. The suspension is a highly sophisticated race-quality setup that uses pushrods to mount the coil-over shocks inboard to reduce unsprung weight. Out back, an independent suspension carries more race-quality parts, including more coil-over shocks. The massive brakes have been borrowed from the C5 Corvette, and custom 3-piece Shelby wheels are not only light, but incredibly strong. Even Goodyear was getting in on the act, creating a special run of custom 18-inch tires for the Series 1. Deep leather buckets are supportive and custom made for this application, featuring Carroll Shelby's signature embossed in the backs. The custom dash uses a mixture of custom and off-the-shelf GM components that ensure reliability without compromising style and performance. That means powerful HVAC that will chill you in the middle of the desert, and a stereo that delivers big sound thanks to speakers scattered throughout the passenger compartment. Of course, there's the requisite Shelby badge on the dash, as well as the serial number and another signature, and the floors are covered with embroidered floor mats. There is no trunk, with the rear area being filled with a fuel cell set within the wheelbase for ideal weight distribution, but there is a snug black canvas convertible top that folds easily into a well behind the seats, where it's hidden by a hard cover. Building a custom, hand-built automobile that meets all of today's emissions and safety standards is no easy task, and that's why the Series 1 is so special. Uncompromising in its quality and dedication to performance, this car's only real rival might be a Ferrari. Exclusive, fast, and beautifully built, this CSX5004 is investment-grade throughout, and an absolute blast to drive.

Mustang Monthly Presents RK Motors Charlotte's Boss 302
No question about it, the Boss 302 market is heating up. Take a good, long look at this 1970 Boss 302 with just 34,189 original miles, a 100% original drivetrain, and a top-flight restoration by one of the top shops in the country. Investment grade? This is the one. According to the restoration photos, this was one clean Boss before it was stripped to bare metal and restored by the pros at Santa Barbara Muscle Cars. They stripped it to a shell, repaired any trouble spots, and then refinished it in the original Competition Yellow. There were only 693 Competition Yellow over black Boss 302s built in 1970, making this a somewhat rare piece. This one comes with the optional Shaker hood scoop, and underneath you'll find the original, highly detailed Boss 302 engine. The restorers replaced every missing part, including the emissions control system, distributor, heat shields, and water tubes with correct, new-old-stock Boss items. Ford Blue paint covers the block, heads, and air cleaner underneath the Shaker hood scoop, and the original Boss 302 valve covers were retained. Even the fan belts are correct pieces, not generic replacements from the auto parts store. The only way you could get your Boss was with a 4-speed manual, and the original transmission still lives behind the engine. Out back, there's a highly detailed and correct Ford 9-inch sporting 3.50 gears and a Track-Lok limited slip. This car was so clean, it didn't need any floor patches, and in some areas, the original paint can still be found. The floors are red oxide primer with yellow overspray, as original, and like the engine bay, it is highly detailed. A new Exhaust system has been installed, and it's cool to note that this one was built using the original Ford tooling. Finally, you've undoubtedly noticed that this car is also equipped with the incredibly rare "Starburst" wheels, which were on the car from new. These unique wheels still wear Goodyear Polyglas GT tires as original. The beautifully preserved standard black bucket seat interior is all the proof you need that this is a highly original, solid car. Yes, it's all original, from the seats to the carpets to the headliner. After 41 years, it's showing a few signs of age, but we had to look twice at more than a few components to assure ourselves that they were indeed original—they just look too nice. A Hurst shifter controls the 4-speed, and the original AM radio still lives in the dash and functions as it should. The restored trunk compartment has correct finishes throughout, plus a new mat and inflatable space-saver spare with full jack assembly. The day of the Boss 302 is upon us. With its big brother, the Boss 429 now commanding a quarter-million dollars, the more affordable Boss 302 is gaining ground fast. This is one of the most correct, solid, and well-documented Boss Mustangs we've ever seen, and it's two-owner history only adds to the appeal. With top-quality work throughout, and a highly original interior, it's ready to compete at the highest levels. If ever there was an investment-grade Boss 302, this is it.
