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

1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969
Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago,
and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural
rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't
want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another
similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could
replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis
from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we
decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car,
including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass.
We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that
we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and
drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and
substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it
used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell
people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated"
by another Fairlane sedan!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you
think! Thanks for watching!
1956 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN -- STILL IN THE FAMILY
You think this Town Sedan has been restored? Nope. It's an original
survivor with low mileage and still in the original family. The design of
the '56 Ford is just a tad different from the '55 Ford. And this two-year
design update had a direct impact on accelerating sales. For instance,
the '56 Ford Town Sedan sold 224,872 units for this model only. Ford built
1.4 million cars this year but still trailed Chevy's 1.56 million units.
Ford, ( and Mercury ), offered the seatbelt and other safety extras as an
option. Engines available for Fords went from a straight 6, 223 cid with
137 bhp., to V8's: 272 / 173, 292 / 200, 312 / 215. This Town Sedan was
purchased new in Lincoln, Nebraska by the uncle of the present owner who
recovered it from storage and brought it back to St. Louie. I always have
an infinity for mid-fifties Ford products and so, of course, this one
caught my eye. This Ford is so perfect looking that it appears to be brand
new. The paint and chrome are outstanding. The interior is flawless.
What a survivor this is. So, enjoy watching this pristine example and, as
always, thanks very much for viewing this 1956 Ford Fairlane Town Sedan.
