1955 Crown Victoria
1955 Ford Crown Victoria
Break out the poodle skirts and leather jackets because this classic will
have you dreaming of the 50's. Tri five Chevys may get all of the press
but one look at this 55 Ford Crown Victoria will have you wondering why
anyone gives those Chevys attention. In true 50's style this classic is
coated in the factory Pink and White two tone paint which is in excellent
condition. Pink pin-stripping graces the hood giving the car a touch of
custom. Pink is typically thought of as a feminine color but something
about the look of this car works whether the person behind the wheel has a
Y chromosome or not. Everyone that lays eyes on the car tells us how nice
it is and reports that it is probably the nicest they have seen. To make
it even nicer, the car was just gone through again, despite being already
restored, to insure everything is working properly and everything is in
good condition. You may just think this is your everyday 1955 Crown
Victoria, but we assure you it is not. The rare glass top option is
something many people haven't seen. If you thought the moon roof was a new
idea then you better guess again! These classics are covered with
beautiful chrome and trim and just wouldn't look right without it. That's
why all of the chrome, emblems, and stainless has been replaced or reworked
to look amazing. The front grill is laser straight and makes for a great
looking front end. The car has a great stance and rides on 15" chrome
wheels with new wide whitewall radial tires.
The original 292 V8 was rebuilt and runs very well. It starts up every
time and has a great sound through brand new dual Exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers. The block,
heads, and manifold are all coated in the correct Ford blue for
originality. The finned valve covers are in place and look great next to
the billet air cleaner. The original Ford O'Matic shifts very smoothly
with zero issues. If you aren't sure what a Ford O'matic is, it's the 3
speed automatic introduced in 1950. The power brakes work just as they
should with disc brakes in front and drum in rear. They have just been
completely rebuilt as was the entire front end. It has been completely
converted to a 12 volt system to make replacing electrical parts a lot less
time consuming and less costly.
The interior is finished out in pink and white to match the exterior and
looks great. The white seats with pink inserts look like they are custom
but are actually the original style. The dash is left in the original
style and looks great. All of the bezels and knobs are in great condition
and in place. The glove box door has been chromed to add a little extra
shine to the interior. The car has factory air conditioning but has an
updated compressor. This means that not only will the A/C work better than
it did originally but it has been converted from the R-12 system which
means getting it charged is much easier. Spot lights are also in place
which are the genuine real deal. These are often rare and can be very
expensive. The original push button radio is also still in place but not
currently working. A new AM/FM/CD stereo system with remote has been
installed to provide the tunes for when you are cruising in this beauty!
This is one awesome car that gets respect wherever it is driven. You will
be amazed seeing in person just as everyone else that has been lucky enough
to check it out.

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.

This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at
the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama,
Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George
Barris and John Force among others. It's one of the best customs on the
planet and it carries the show history to prove it.
Body modifications were handled by Bernt Karlsson, owner of Customs by
Bernt, who should be familiar to you as Boyd Coddington's painter on the
show American Hotrod. Karlsson began making customizations to the body by
adding a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door
openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of
that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55
Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon
and Cadillac wheel covers which provide a nice subtle stock-yet-custom
After the shell was finished, Nosse Brothers took over for the reassembly
and customization of the small details. They installed a full set of custom
fitted Solex tinted glass, painstakingly built up the Art Morrison chassis
before marrying it to the body and handled all finishing aspects of the car
from headliner to fuel lines.
1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same soft, aromatic two tan
leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers
custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized
'56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik
steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. This custom
interior veritably screams class, refinement and comfort and makes for an
exceptionally well tied together car.
Art Morrison built the custom 3" by 4" boxed frame and tubular A arm front
suspension which houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a
Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out
back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears,
Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes.
Stainless fasteners are everywhere, braided hoses carry all fluids and the
top loader 4-speed and a Cannon Engineering driveshaft is as detailed as
the rest of the car. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a
perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. This is one show car that's as drivable
as it is perfect!
The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460
cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460
aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder
dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s. Doug's Headers and a Modine
radiator round out the package and complement Bernt's smoothed firewall.
Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is
the fulfillment of a childhood dream. When you've got the right people and
the right plan trophies just about get mailed to your door. It was Boyd
Coddington's personal pick at his eponymous cruise, best of show at John
Force's holiday cruise, finished second at the GNRS in mild custom, took
the Outstanding Elegance award in Fresno, best custom at Carlisle and
Meguiars sponsored the car in 2005. Of course, that list neglects smaller
shows that it's gone to, but suffice to say it never lost. Bob McClurg
himself wrote the car up in a six page spread in Super Rod.
If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make
you smile. With its show winning history, award winning builders, mountain
of trophies and dynamite looks this is just the custom car centerpiece
you've been looking for to add to your collection!
