1956 Ford Crown Victoria

This 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria can be your new crown jewel. After all it's rare with less than 2% of Fairlane production that year going the range-topping Crown Vic, nd as you pour over all the pictures, ou'll see an exceptional level of maintenance. Finished in its factory-correct Goldenglow Yellow and Colonial White, he restored paintwork definitely contributes to the art deco style of this coupe. Fords were instantly recognizable with their sweeping chrome trim dividing the two-tone combinations extending from the headlight all the way back to the tail. It's easy to distinguish the Crown Victorias as the highest level of the already top-of-the-line Ford Fairlanes, ecause only these have the encompassing brightwork that visually separates the front and rear passenger compartments. The total effect of all this chrome, nd the optional fender skirts, ive this coupe the lower, ider, nd longer feel that everyone in Detroit strove for back then. Of course this attitude is helped even further with a custom Continental kit that even incorporates the factory chrome rear bumper that holds the exhaust tips.The matching two-tone interior appears just like it did the day it left the Dearborn, ichigan factory in 1956. All of the vinyl seems amazingly nice and original, hich tells a lot about this car's level of care. In the highest echelon of Ford coupes, ven the rear seats received the same style treatment, nd the roomy bench even has an armrest for individual luxury. The stylish door panels have a similar swoopy design to emulate the exterior trim, nd it wraps into the dashboard in a continuous sweep. This was the year of Ford's Lifeguard safety package, hich added some interesting items like the padded dashboard and the cool recessed gauge package. As amazingly original this car appears, ou'll start to notice some cool upgrades. There's an AM/FM/cassette radio for more modern tunes that fits into the original knob and chrome trim. There's even an air conditioner for comfortable cruising. But the best upgrades are felt from the drivers seat. You get to grab a smaller diameter sports wheel that looks period correct in its two-tone with chrome, nd there's also a unique sporty floor shifter. Under the hood is Ford's trusty and powerful 272 cubic-inch Ford Y-block V8 motor. It's breathing with Thunderbird style thanks to a Holley four-barrel carburetor, hich gives this coupe the power to be an anywhere kind of cruiser. Plus you'll be able to choose on demand if you want the dual exhaust to sound mild or wild thanks to the three-speed manual transmission. This Crown Vic also has power steering and front disc brakes, o it perfectly straddles the line between hot rod and comfortable cruiser.This is one of the great V8 Fords that everyone loves to see. But for the people who really know, ou can impress them with this coupe's level of quality and absolute rarity. Call today!!!
