1956 Ford Victoria
Outstanding frame off restoration finished in 2002 with less than 6k miles since. This blue over white beauty features a 292c.i. V-8 with automatic transmission. The engine has been updated with an Edelbrock #1406 4bbl carburetor for better performance and reliability. The body and paint on this car looks as good if not better than original. The interior is the same with light blue cloth surrounded by white vinyl done in the original pattern. Power steering and power brakes make this car as easy to drive as a new car! All of the chrome and stainless is new or restored and looks great. Mid to late fifties Fords' are getting increasingly difficult to find this nice. This car comes with a photo album of the restoration and several trophies.
1955 FORD CROWN VIC HARDTOP COUPE - CLASSIC MID-FIFTIES STYLING
1955 brought out the new Ford design, a symetrical and stylish car which featured hooded headlights, fender spear that divided two tone colors, and with the Crown Vic that stainless steel " crown" that wrapped over the roof from side to side. This band was sometimes referred to as the " basket handle ". The low end Ford was the plain jane Mainline, then the Customline, and Fairlane. The Crown Vic was within the Fairlane model. The engine choices were an L head 6, 223 cid, with 120 hp, then the V8, 272 cid, that would produce either 162 hp or 182 hp. This particular Vic costs $2,202 at the dealer and has the optional continental kit and skirts which make the Vic look lower and longer. The interior always matched the two-tone paint scheme which has a harmonious effect. The Crown Vic name was revived in the eighties and was utilized taxi companies and police forces for years. Alas, the Crown Vic of today will cease production this year. No more Crown Vic cabs and law enforcement vehicles. Thanks very much for viewing this gorgeous '55 Crown Vic.
