Dad took me for a spin in his 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. After stopping at Buffalo Bill's Mansion and Scout's Rest Ranch, I ask him for a quick demonstration of the Ford's engine power. Update: A few viewers have kindly suggested (or rudely insisted) that the engine is misfiring. Since I don't know much about cars, this one in particular, I asked Dad the last time I talked to him. He told me that it was not misfiring, and that the rough idle was characteristic of the Y-block engines Ford was using for these cars. He did inform me, however, that there is an Exhaust leak, and that may be what people are hearing and mistaking for a misfire. He then said, "I know that explanation won't be good enough for some people who are convinced my engine just HAS to be missing. I don't care; it runs well enough for my tastes." Update 2: I'm going to ask all the functionally retarded members of the YouTube community to please consider the following: If you are a jerk to me, expect me to make fun of you, then block you. I'm not putting up with it. You can hate me, hate my dad, hate his car, hate this video all you want--just thumbs down my video and move on with your life. Seriously. No one cares. At all. I put this up on a whim for people who might enjoy seeing a '56 Fairlane. If you aren't one of those people, go find something you do like.
1956 Ford Customline Victoria & Ranch Wagon Car Commercial
The 1956 Ford passenger car remained largely unchanged from the previous 1955 model aside from a slightly redesigned, more open grille. Big news for 1956 was the adoption of 12 volt electrical system across the entire Ford line. The Thunderbird Power mentioned in the clip comes from the V8 "Y" 292 CID engine rated at 193 hp. Of course this was the same engine used in the Thunderbirds of the day.
