Classic Car Overview

For consignment, a time capsule not oft seen version of the 4 door sedan Fairlane aptly referred to as the Town Sedan. This example is in good condition, not perfect with some rust seen on bodywork, and the engine smokes a bit so it may be indeed of pistons or rings. There are new suspension and brake parts tires, carpeting, seat material, generator, battery and fuel tank. The valves have been resurfaced. Nice nifty 50s color way and plenty of chrome to keep your eye in candy land. Exterior We are treated to straight steel panels, well minded gaps, and wonderful 2 tone Mountain Green with Snowshoe White paint scheme. Breaking up and highlighting the panels are shiny and mirror-like nuggets of chrome trimmings and big multi-level bumpers on front and back. Atop the hood is a jet ornament, which was definitely the theme of times to come. Just below is a perfect cloisonn Ford shield badge. On the front quarter are the beginnings of the iconic swoop spear which starts just above the headlights, and runs towards the mid door where it takes a dive downward then levels off to trim the delineation between the green and white. Large chrome surrounds for the windows and on the rear B pillar a wide wrap trim, which thins out and runs to the end of the car on top of the rear fenders. On back, 2 simple round tail lights with a pointed backup triangular shaped backup light just above. The green covers the lowers and sides as well as the roof of the car, and the white is on the hood, upper sides and trunk. What a great combo. The body panels do show some rust bubbling which is mostly on the lowers. A shout out to all 4 corners with their dog dish style wheel coverings wrapped in wide whites. Ive got it made in the shade. Interior More excess in the form of attention to detail and use of multi colors from the same color way on the door panels. Using shades of cool green and white, the door panels have a curved streak stretching across them. All these curve and form areas for the door handle, door pull and window crank to shine, and they do very nicely. Speaking of shining, the sills are an eye catcher in the green. Slipping our eyes inside, we see front and rear benches stretching from door to door, and covered in white vinyl uppers and bolsters with blue green vinyl smooth inserts and lower backs. Fronting these luscious seats is a metal dash, in full restored style. A turquoise blue dash top and lowers matches the seats. A crescent gauge cluster has steel blue backgrounds, and just below a smattering of knobs and pulls. A blue/green bakelite big steering wheel fronts the dash, and in dash central are round temp slider panels, radio and a clock, not unlike the tail lighting and looking jet age fer sur. Blue carpeting floods the floors, and above is a tight blue headliner. Neato Man. Drivetrain Under that big hood, is a correct for the car 272ci V8 engine looking nicely restored on its surfaces. It shows in a painted red block with red cylinder heads and black Ford badged valve coverings. It is topped by a 2-barrel carburetor, and on the back is a 3 speed Ford-O-Matic pushing power rearward to a Ford 9 inch 3.31 rear axle. Showing its correct silver painted high hat oil bath for cleaner and the Fo-Mo-Co window washer fluid bag, the engine bay is fairly clean, hoses are supple and like new as is all wiring and belts. Cmon snake lets rattle! Undercarriage Nicely preserved noting some mild to heavy surface rust depending on what you are looking at. A new fuel tank is now on and newer stock style exhaust. Floor pans and rockers are showing some surface rust, patina and road dirt from many years of accumulation. Independent coil springs for the front suspension and leaf springs are on the back. Drum brakes are noted all around. That razzes my berries. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and just a dreamy car to drive. It is all working and idles like a dream, and its a good dream. She does pumps out some smoke and may be in need of a ring job. The car accelerates smoothly going through the gears and up to a smooth cruising speed. The ride is excellent. Cornering is good for 1955, and stopping is very quick with the drum brakes. The radio is non-functional and the fuel gauge does not read the fuel level. Motion the car hop over, I need a malt! A multi-owner car, where it underwent a litany of restoration and modifications over time. An interior recovered much like the original, drives like a dream, and a real head turning cruiser, bestowing our Hallowed Halls here at Classic Auto Mall, and ready for the turn-key taking. Im digging it. All 4 doors of it. Towney.
