132404 / 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/78ya2q8 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!

132870 / 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6ohlatj Starting with a clean, Arizona car, this 1967 Chevelle was given a rotisserie restoration to show standards before the modifications started. Top and bottom, the sheetmetal is 100% original, and the pros at West Coast Classics smoothed and polished it to its current breathtaking specs before spraying that gorgeous House of Kolor Blue Blood Red paint, which costs about $1200 a gallon. Gaps are excellent, as you'd expect from a pro-built machine, and the attention to detail is what sets high-end cars like this apart from their homeowner-grade cousins. Of course, all the chrome and stainless was also restored to show standards, including the bumpers, stock grille, and even the blacked-out tail panel, which looks totally custom without SS emblems. The tail lights in the Chevelles were miniature works of art, and those on this car look have been stuffed full of trick LED bulbs for a custom look at night. Then the modifications started, and the first was the monster 502 cubic inch big block that they nestled between the front fenders. Rated at 450 horsepower and a staggering 550 pounds of torque, it hurls the Chevelle up to speed like a sling shot. Zoops provided a billet accessory drive, which handles the high-output alternator and A/C, as well as the high-flow water pump that keeps everything cool. There's a massive aluminum radiator up front with a set of Flex-A-Lite fans managing airflow, and the hoses and wires have been neatly routed out of sight as much as possible. You'll also note that the inner fenders and firewall are finished to the same exceptional standards as the rest of the body. The chassis has been powdercoated satin black, and many of the suspension components were given a coat of silver powder for contrast. A built 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission built by Monster Transmissions easily handles the big block's torque, force-feeding it to a 12-bolt full of 3.73 gears and a limited slip. 2-inch drop spindles work with fat sway bars fore and aft to deliver shockingly good cornering performance, while Energy Suspension supplied all the suspension bushings and body mounts, so handling is crisp. Four-wheel disc brakes were installed and use vented and cross-drilled rotors, along with new lines, hoses, and calipers. Gorgeous Torque Thrust II wheels have been fitted with low-profile Pirelli rubber that thoroughly stuffs the wheel wells. Inside, the interior is almost 100% stock. With fresh gear supplied by Legendary, you know it's exact and that it fits the way the factory intended. This is an original factory A/C car, so the original vents are fully functional, and the system is still controlled by the factory switchgear. Other trick details include the console and shifter, which now shows appropriate detents for the 4-speed transmission, and all the gauges have been restored to new condition. In the trunk, there's a reproduction mat and a full-sized Torque Thrust wheel and tire assembly, so you never have to limp home on a weenie space-saver. This killer Chevelle was featured on the TV show "Tail Fins and Chrome" just after it was finished, and today shows less than 70 miles on the clock. Spectacularly built by one of the hottest names in Pro-Touring and finished to standards that will earn trophies at any level, this is an incredible car that can do it all.

132373 / 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7gk839v If you're looking for something truly unique that offers the style of the early Sting Ray with today's performance and reliability, RK Motors Charlotte is proud to present this modern interpretation of the classic Sting Ray coupe. This is a one-of-a-kind car built on a 2003 Corvette platform, delivering early Sting Ray looks on the C5's world-class platform. More than $100,000 was spent on the build, and it took more than seven months to fabricate it from scratch. And rest assured purists, no Sting Rays were harmed in the construction of this awesome machine. First off, this is not some bolt-together kit that you've seen elsewhere, it is a completely hand-made machine. Custom molds were created to fashion Sting Ray shaped panels to the C5's structure, and of the handful of cars built by this shop, this is the ONLY coupe. As you can imagine, being built in a pro rod shop means that the car is vastly nicer than any stock Corvette, then or now. The molds replicate the curves and shapes of the early Corvette exactly, although the proportions are wider and more aggressive thanks to the C5's longer, wider chassis. The paint is Intense Blue Pearl, which looks a little bit like Nassau Blue, which was popular on both the original Sting Ray and the C5, and seems perfectly appropriate here. The C5's engine bay remains as it was designed by factory engineers, which means this car runs and drives just like a new Corvette. Turn the key and the LS1 lights off instantly and idles perfectly every time. Of course, it has all been beautifully dressed up to match the rest of the car, including Corvette coil covers painted to match the body, a chrome intake manifold in place of the original black thermoplastic unit, and a lot of chrome dress-up, including the power steering, master cylinder, and alternator covers. All the original components remain fully functional, including the A/C, ABS, traction control, cruise control, and electric cooling fans. The 6-speed manual transmission is mated to a 3.42 gear set out back and the suspension has been lowered 1.5 inches all around, giving it a perfect stance. The Exhaust system was custom fabricated to exit the rear valence just as on the original Sting Ray, and offers Flowmaster D10 mufflers for that unmistakable LS1 rumble. New Torque Thrust M wear custom center caps with bowtie emblems and a set of 17-inch Nitto Extreme radials. The original C5 buckets are the optional sport seats and have fresh leather seat covers that smell great and feature 1960s style crossed flag emblems embroidered into the headrests. A Hurst short-throw shifter has been installed with a big, black knob that recalls the '60s as well, but otherwise the interior is pure C5 Corvette. The gauges are fully functional and do a cool dance every time you key up the engine, the stereo and climate controls are powerful, and things like power seats, windows, keyless entry, a trip computer, and dual airbags all remain fully operational. Recent diamond-plate floor mats painted to match the body are also included with the car. Even the trunk is like new, with a mat that features an early Corvette Sting Ray logo embroidered into its surface. Uncommon machines are what RK Motors Charlotte specializes in, and few are more off-the-charts amazing than this hand-built work of art. It's also wonderful to drive, with all the inherent goodness of the C5 Corvette surviving the transformation 100% intact. If you're looking for a car that combines vintage good looks with modern mechanicals that isn't some kind of resto-mod, you can't do better than this incredible machine. Give us a call today and we'll tell you all about it!





133307 / 1946 Ford Coupe
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d3y6ck6 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 out back. 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 pedal. 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 http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!

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 condition. 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.

1955 Ford Being built and Tested
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 6 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), 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.
