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.

1955 Ford Mainline Gateway Classic Cars Chicago #873
#873 For sale in our Chicago showroom is a snow white 1955 Ford Mainline 2-Door. This car has some great originality and has been restored throughout the years with the intent of keeping it original in appearance. The interior is the correct two-tone gray with cloth seating surfaces and light gray vinyl surrounds. The dash is original and had a very interesting design for the time featuring a clear glass speedometer plate that you can see through all the way to the back of the cluster. In addition everything was designed to be round including the clock, radio and Ford Magic Air heating and cooling control. The radio has 2 arrow markers on the dial for emergency information in the event of an enemy attack. On the exterior of the car you will notice very smooth body panels and the big bright shiny chrome that made these cars iconic. This '55 is finished off with new wide whitewall tires with original and very nice full hubcaps with red medallions. The I-6 insignia on each front fender show how proud Ford was of the 235 Cubic inch Inline 6-cylinder that starts up and runs fantastic. This car is remarkably quiet as well and gets up to speed quickly by shifting through the 3-speed manual transmission with the ultra cool column shift. An upgraded Pioneer CD player with rear Pioneer speakers creates a sound unlike anything you would achieve from the original radio. Inside the trunk you will see some additional goodys including a service/shop manual, car cover, electrical diagrams and the original owners manual. The spare tire appears to be the bias-ply original and is very well preserved. If you are looking for a fun driver that is very easy to work on and inexpensive to repair this is the car for you!
