Customs are renowned for their use of color and special paints, and this lovely Fairlane is no exception. It's brilliant silver pearl with candy purple, and the difference between these colors and those you'd find on a production car is remarkable. Of course, cool paint will only get you so far if the bodywork isn't properly done, so every panel on this car was sanded, buffed, and massaged until it was laser-straight. And with all that bright trim, there's nowhere for misaligned panels to hide. Like any great custom, the modifications are so subtle and well-executed, it's almost impossible to tell where the changes are, because it looks so factory. Everything is crisp and beautifully blended, and you'll need a stock Fairlane next to this one to see all the modifications.
While the original Y-block V8 was no slouch in the horsepower department, this custom is now powered by a healthy 351 cubic inch Windsor V8. Dressed in bright Ford Blue, the engine bay is tidy and easy to service, and a nice compromise between flashy upgrades and OEM equipment. There's chrome on the air cleaner and valve covers, which is pretty much standard equipment in any modified car these days, but to keep it reliable, all the original Ford mechanicals remain in place.
The transmission is a C6 3-speed automatic turning the Fairlane's original live rear axle. In fact, aside from modern tube shocks, the suspension and steering systems remain 100% original. The original frame and floors have been undercoated to control heat and noise, and the 351 exhales through a pair of cherry bomb mufflers that were the only choice if you were a hot rodder in the 1950s. Traditionalists will be pleased to see that it rolls on color-matched steel wheels with spinner wheel covers and vintage-looking Coker Classic wide whitewall bias-ply tires.
The interior is nicely finished in matching silver and purple fabrics, and it's very tastefully done. With pleated seats, slick cloth and vinyl door panels, and a dashboard painted to match the body, it's the perfect complement to the body. All the original gauges have been retained and remain fully functional, with a trio of auxiliary gauges installed in their own panel under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash in a nod to originality and authenticity, with a modern AM/FM/CD head unit right below it so nothing had to be cut or modified. You'll also find that the carpets have been expertly trimmed, with a heel pad for the driver and matching binding on the edges, including around the custom shifter housing.
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, who were often years and years ahead of the OEMs. With all the right period 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!

Like New - Very well redone 1956 Ford Fairlane - SOLD!
Take a very very close look at this stunning 56 ford Fairlane 2 door sedan!
Have you ever seen a 56 so cherry? The current owner of 9 years updated the
car in 2002 with power out of a 1989 Lincoln 302 4 speed over-drive
automatic transmission! The 302 has a new Holley 600 carburetor. At the
same time the motor was done, the front end was also done which was 16,000
miles ago. We have been told that the Lincoln donor motor had about 60K
miles on it--so overall motor miles are approximately 76K. It also has a
dual servo master cylinder.
The car also has professional conversion kit P/S, Lincoln 4-way power disk
brakes, R/H, an after market kit A/C, Lincoln 4-way power disk brakes, 6
disk player in the trunk, very sanitary VDO gauges in the dash, and spot
lights--of course. The outside of the car keeps with the stock approach
with a little upgrade with chrome and of course lake pipes, newer Super
Steel 535 205/55R16 tires, mags, and dual Exhaust that provides a great rumble.
The interior speaks for itself and is very very clean job as is the rest of
the car (it has just been done right). A full picture by picture was done
as the work went along. This is a superb frame up. You are worthy of this
car and all you have to do is just turn the key and drive away! As
previously stated, this is a health forces the sale I really wish I could
have had this master put my crown together. JUST REDUCED FROM 30K TO
CURRENT PRICE AS ILLNESS FORCES SALE!

Pull up a chair, dig in and see why this brilliant custom demonstrates that
"Fat Fender Fords" come in all different flavors!
Prepped and finished to an extremely high standard this Ford Club Coupe
offers a host of traditional hot-rodding tricks including molded-in rear
fenders, frenched headlights, flush-mounted tail lights, and shaved door
handles. Of course none of that detracts from the car's ultra-straight
sheetmetal which, as the construction photos show, was solid to begin with.
When you see it in person, you'll be digging all sorts of little
subtleties, just as we do. And naturally the finish is two-stage urethane
that emphasizes the body's original shape thanks to multi-colored graphics.
Dyed in the blue Ford fans will be thrilled to find a vintage 302 cubic
inch Ford V8 under the hood; and finally there's a hot rod with the
distributor up front where it belongs! The engine's professionally detailed
bay contrasts well with the car's bright exterior paint, perfectly tying
into its impressive graphics and pinstripes. In fact it's hard to talk
about the detailing of the engine bay without addressing the entire
chassis, which is bathed in matching lavender paint from front to back. Of
course, appropriate amounts of polished aluminum and chrome dress it up,
from the Ford Motorsport air cleaner to the finned cast aluminum valve
covers that have been dressed to match. It's obvious that someone invested
a good amount of time making sure every hose and wire was neatly tucked out
of sight as much as possible, including those for a powerful A/C system.
And with details like a smooth firewall and a color- matched power brake Booster, you'll be anxious to park and
get the hood open at any show you attend.
As I mentioned this Ford's chassis, which is painted to match its
outrageous exterior paint, is just as well detailed as the aforementioned
engine bay. The original frame was retained, although the front section was
modified with frame stubs from a Chevy Nova, and it includes an independent
front end, disc brakes, and modern power steering. The transmission is
Ford's own C4 3-speed automatic, spinning a rugged nine inch rear end
that's stuffed with easy-cruising 3.00 gears. And every square inch of the
chassis just pops against the car's satin black underbody. A custom dual Exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers was
fabricated to tuck up close to the floor and out of sight, terminating in a
set of slant-cut tips that are vaguely reminiscent of a Mustang 5.0. Four wheel power disc
brakes are a nice surprise, giving this vintage Ford modern stopping power
that will inspire confidence on the road. And billet wheels from American
Racing fill the car's fat wells to the brim with 195/65/15 BF Goodrich
Traction T/A radials up front and 235/70/15 Cooper Discoverer H/T radials
Tan tweed is the dominant theme inside, and for a long-distance cruiser,
you'll probably find that this car's cloth is a lot more comfortable than
leather because it breathes better. The custom work is extensive and the
detailing is very well done. The front buckets are obviously out of a
late-model vehicle and offer plenty of adjustment so that just about anyone
can get comfortable behind the wheel. Scallops adorn the door panels and
headliner, lending the interior a symmetry that suggests someone spent a
lot of time in the planning stage. The rear seat has been upholstered to
match with a folding center armrest, making this a true 5-passenger car.
The original dash has been filled and modified to accept a complete array
of VDO white-faced gauges, and eyeball vents have been professionally
integrated into the design. A separate panel has been fitted below the main
dash to hold secondary controls for the HVAC system and a powerful Sony
AM/FM/CD stereo system that has speakers scattered throughout the interior.
And other thoughtful upgrades include seat and shoulder belts, a bunch of
OEM-style courtesy lights, and a vintage Ford style "spoon" accelerator
This unique Ford has been extremely well built, and our hats are off to the
builder for keeping it Ford powered. Call, click or visit
