1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner
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!
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.
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.
