With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1956 Ford Crown Victoria Blu/Wh
Great car, great paint and two tone color combination. The trim on the
side facilitates this imaginative use of color. The decorative chrome trim
over the top of the car mirrored on the inside was an interesting styling
touch. The interior piece was painted trim color...the original would have
been chrome. The dash had changed markedly from the 1955 model, and now a
padded dash was optional.

If there ever was an icon of the mid 50's in America, this would be right
up there in contention! The "continental kit"...exterior spare mounted
behind the decklid. The colors too are soooo 50's (hear my explanation of
the source of that), and the car pioneered safety features far ahead of
the others...like seatbelts, padded dash and visors, deep dish steering
wheel and improved door locks. Too bad the safety equipment wasn't that
well received...we know better now!

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!
