Customs are renowned for their use of color and special paints, and this
lovely Fairlane is no exception. It's brilliant silver pearl with candy
purple, and the difference between these colors and those you'd find on a
production car is remarkable. Of course, cool paint will only get you so
far if the bodywork isn't properly done, so every panel on this car was
sanded, buffed, and massaged until it was laser-straight. And with all that
bright trim, there's nowhere for misaligned panels to hide. Like any great
custom, the modifications are so subtle and well-executed, it's almost
impossible to tell where the changes are, because it looks so factory.
Everything is crisp and beautifully blended, and you'll need a stock
Fairlane next to this one to see all the modifications.
While the original Y-block V8 was no slouch in the horsepower department, this
custom is now powered by a healthy 351 cubic inch Windsor V8. Dressed in
bright Ford Blue, the engine bay is tidy and easy to service, and a nice
compromise between flashy upgrades and OEM equipment. There's chrome on the
air cleaner and valve covers, which is pretty much standard equipment in
any modified car these days, but to keep it reliable, all the original Ford
mechanicals remain in place.
The transmission is a C6 3-speed automatic turning the Fairlane's original
live rear axle. In fact, aside from modern tube shocks, the suspension and
steering systems remain 100% original. The original frame and floors have
been undercoated to control heat and noise, and the 351 exhales through a
pair of cherry bomb mufflers that were the only choice if you were a hot
rodder in the 1950s. Traditionalists will be pleased to see that it rolls
on color-matched steel wheels with spinner wheel covers and vintage-looking
Coker Classic wide whitewall bias-ply tires.
The interior is nicely finished in matching silver and purple fabrics, and
it's very tastefully done. With pleated seats, slick cloth and vinyl door
panels, and a dashboard painted to match the body, it's the perfect
complement to the body. All the original gauges have been retained and
remain fully functional, with a trio of auxiliary gauges installed in their
own panel under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash in a
nod to originality and authenticity, with a modern AM/FM/CD head unit right
below it so nothing had to be cut or modified. You'll also find that the
carpets have been expertly trimmed, with a heel pad for the driver and
matching binding on the edges, including around the custom shifter housing.
True customs are all about appearances, and the beautifully finished
bodywork on this Fairlane is a tribute to the early pioneers of
metalworking and paint technology, who were often years and years ahead of
the OEMs. With all the right period touches, this is a car that will make
guys who were there smile, and create a whole new generation of custom car
fans who understand that how a car looks is just as important as how it
runs. If you're one of those guys, get in touch today, because this car is
a lot of traditional fun for not a lot of money. Call now!

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.

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!

MOTOR SIZE CORRECTION
Any time we get stunning 50's era Detroit metal into our Vanguard Motor
Sales showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesn't
stick around very long. This 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown has been
painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect
car for anyone who wants an exceptionally well done restoration for half
the price of doing it themselves.
This car takes everything that was great about the first generation
Fairlane and wraps it in outstanding workmanship. From top to bottom, the
body of this car is as straight as when it rolled out of the factory.
Dressed in two-tone red and white, the cars paint features an excellent
shine with no major flaws or damage. The red and white color scheme gives
the car a classic feeling. Panel gaps are just how you would expect, the
door lips and jambs are clean and rust free. We were stunned by the quality
of the stainless trim on this car, it is truly exceptional. Both the front
and rear chrome bumpers are beautiful as well. A hood mounted Ford emblem
and "Fairlane" script are centered on the hood and line up perfectly with
the hood ornament. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows down the side of
the car, and the great looking Ford emblems with "Crown Victoria" badges
are centered on each door. Ahead of the front fender openings, V8 emblems
announce the presence of a Ford Y block. The Crown Victoria exclusive
chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim is in truly
awesome condition. On the right side of the trunk a "Ford-O-Matic" script
announces the presence of a hydraulic transmission.
As the body tag reads, this Fairlane is a top of the line car that features
an excellent running correct 312 Y-block V8. You can see the "Thunderbird"
polished valve covers, aluminum intake, custom made ceramic powder coated
headers by Red's Headers, an Edelbrock carb and the gorgeous air cleaner.
The heater blower motor and duct work have been restored. In front of the
engine the generator and cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss black
radiator. Power steering and power front disc brakes are also included.
The frame and underside of the car are solid! There have been a few repairs
to the floor boards and rocker on the driver side, but the passenger side
has been untouched. Any repairs that were done, were done beautifully. The
original rear end is present along with 2 inch lowering blocks. The 2 inch
aluminum dual Exhaust and Smithy
mufflers sound awesome. Behind the oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic
2-speed transmission. The rear drum brakes appear to be in excellent
Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been
excellently done. A new headliner is tight across the roof and features the
bottom side of the Crown Victoria 'basket handle'. In front of you, a
perfectly restored dash houses the speedometer, fuel and temperature
gauges, warning lights and a gear selector window. In the center of the
dash you'll find a clock, and a unique AM radio. Updates include a 1956
Ford steering column and the steering wheel, complete with chrome horn
ring. The restored trunk features a new mat.
This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a
high level of detail and carefully maintained. If you wanted to restore a
car to this level on your own, you'd be well into the 6 figure range and
probably sink years into the project. Beautiful, solid, well done cars like
this don't come along too often and given the attention it draws in our
showroom, I expect it to be rolling out the door before too long. Call now!

1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible BluWht
Beautiful condition...292 c.i. Thunderbird V8, continental kit in the back,
Fordomatic...what a great cruiser! Looks absolutely factory fresh! Ford
introduced safety equipment this year, most of which was optional. The
deep dish steeringwheel and door locks were standard, but the padded dash,
padded visors and seatbelts were options. Those options were not a
dramatic success..safety didn't sell at that point.
