56 Ford Fairlane Victoria -Hard Work is Done-Runs & Drives Great - SOLD!
This great old Ford runs and drives great! When it was purchased, it
needed a new gas tank and the brakes repaired which are done!
We have spent 6 months doing body work which has now all been done. Floor
pans were done as needed, it has been nosed, decked, and frenched, the
Peacock Blue paint has been purchased as well as the white paint.
It has a 292 V -8 with A/T and R/H. The big money work has been done. It
needs the block sanding finished, masked down and shot with paint. The
front and rear seats are good but the rest of the interior needs some help.
The price on it now is $8,000 if you finish it. If we finish it with paint
and interior, the price will be around $19K or better!
For more information, please call 503-855-4345 or 503-998-5499.
Dad took me for a spin in his 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. After stopping
at Buffalo Bill's Mansion and Scout's Rest Ranch, I ask him for a quick
demonstration of the Ford's engine power.
Update: A few viewers have kindly suggested (or rudely insisted) that the
engine is misfiring. Since I don't know much about cars, this one in
particular, I asked Dad the last time I talked to him. He told me that it
was not misfiring, and that the rough idle was characteristic of the
Y-block engines Ford was using for these cars. He did inform me, however,
that there is an Exhaust leak, and
that may be what people are hearing and mistaking for a misfire.
He then said, "I know that explanation won't be good enough for some people
who are convinced my engine just HAS to be missing. I don't care; it runs
well enough for my tastes."
Update 2: I'm going to ask all the functionally retarded members of the
YouTube community to please consider the following:
If you are a jerk to me, expect me to make fun of you, then block you. I'm
not putting up with it. You can hate me, hate my dad, hate his car, hate
this video all you want--just thumbs down my video and move on with your
life. Seriously. No one cares. At all. I put this up on a whim for
people who might enjoy seeing a '56 Fairlane. If you aren't one of those
people, go find something you do like.
