Classic Car Overview

1955 Ford Crown Victoria The Crown Victoria name first appeared in the Ford line-up in the 1955 model year as a high-fashion version of the Fairlane. Existing as a two-door coupe for 1955 and 1956, 24 years would pass before the Crown Victoria rejoined the Ford line-up. For consignment the 1955 debut of Fords Crown Victoria. This particular car has all the right stuff but a lot of it isnt attached. Our consignor states that nearly everything is actually with this car trim wise and body panel wise, however its going to need some TLC. Our consignor states that the car does indeed run but ran out of fuel a year ago and the original seat and rechromed parts are included. The good news is it is of the condition where it will be worthwhile to put the effort and dollars into this car, as these basket handle Crown Vics are stunning when completed. Exterior Slight shades of Snowshoe White, one of the factory colors, peeks through in various areas where the trim has been removed and the rest of the body is coated in an amateur respray of the original Torch Red. The Crown Victoria basket handle roof line is present on this car, but the trim has been removed. Nearly all brightwork and chrome trimming are removed, and the body presents with various trim locator holes. The red finish shows with inclusions, spray painted primer touch ups, areas of prior body work and some surface and invasive rust. Kelsey Hayes wire wheels in 14 format are in fair condition and are wrapped in newer wide whitewall rubber. Interior The shell of the interior is devoid of any hint of the factory seating and a single black leather bucket seat has been set in front of the steering wheel. Our consignor states that the original seating is available with this vehicle should you want to take this back to showroom original. The original dash is present in red and white and houses most all of the original gauges, knobs and buttons. The flooring is covered with exterior trim parts as well as some boxes of various parts allowing only small glimpses at the surface rusted steel flooring. Drivetrain A look into the engine bay and at one point there has been some work done on the engine block and intake manifold as they are a nice Ford red. Otherwise, some surface rust and paint chipping are noted throughout along with a coating of dust and patina. Newer hoses are on, and the original radiator is still there. As for the specs, it has its original 272 ci V8, which is fed by a single 2-barrel carb atop, and a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission on back, with a 3.31 rear axle. Undercarriage Some surface rust is coating various parts, and it is lightly coating the underside of the frame. The exhaust appears fairly new, and it is a dual glass pack setup. Power drum brakes are all around. Noted as well surface rust is on the rockers, a few body hangers have been replaced in the past and new brake lines have been installed. Drive-Ability While not wanting to risk the chance of damaging the carburetor we did not add fuel to the tank. However, we did crank the engine over and it does turn nicely without any strange noises. Certainly not a perfect car, but with some TLC on the interior and exterior and you will definitely get your money out of any efforts put forth to get this all there car back to snuff. Rechromed parts and a complete drivetrain give you the opportunity to make this classic your own personalized canvas. Stock or rodded, the choice is yours.
