1956 Ford Customline 272 V8
I thought you'd like a look at this very nice 1956 Ford Customline. It's powered by the original 272 V8, backed by a 3 spd manual. It has approximately 95,xxx original miles and runs great. The two-tone paint looks slick and the interior has been redone. This really is a nice, solid driver. I hope you find it interesting....thanks for taking a look!

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010

1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible ( running walk around )
This is a P-code 312 powered '56 Ford Sunliner convertible in action.

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.
