Classic Car Overview

There is 50s cool then there is 50s AWESOME and this car definitely fits the latter. The beneficiary of an older restoration now showing its age in a few areas but still a stunner, this classic is dripping with all the trappings one would expect from a luxury car of that era...Continental kit rear bumper, dual under the bumper exhaust, factory front and rear bumper guards, fender skirts, and the list goes on and on. Exterior With a true to form 50s color palette, we are greeted with straight steel panels minding their gaps, and bathed in two tone Tropical Rose, and Snowshoe White. A few flaws are noted in the rose section of the paint, particularly down low on the body which is showing inclusions, bubbling and evidence of some body filler. The white is showing some age also and is due for a repaint, but still shows well. It is broken up by the polished stainless steel of the now famous Fairlane strip which flows gracefully from the top of the front fenders down the side of the car and hits the tail lights mid fender. Centered on the Fairlane strip in the middle of the doors are great looking badging emblems with a faded gold crown, and silver Victoria in your grandmothers handwriting. Behind the rocker panels of the car, spotless stainless trim highlights pronounced rear fender skirts. Perfect tinted glass that is in excellent shape all around is accented by the Crown Victoria exclusive chrome basket handle roof piece and stainless window trim. The roof is pretty in Tropical Rose (pink). Out back, the jet-age taillight lenses look new and are topped by a small fin which houses the backup lights. The trunk is backed by a Continental bumper complete with metal enclosed spare tire. Details abound, with lock cylinder covers all around and a single chromed exterior rear-view mirror mounted on top of the drivers door. Wide whites wrap polished wheel covers that have a centered cloisonn Ford Badge. Interior Looking like it was plucked right out of a Silk City Dining Car, the beautiful white and light pink combo has a firm but comfortable feel, as well as all the aesthetics that come with the mid 50s. The door panels which mimic the Fairlane Strip are pink up top, and white on the bottom and all the glass has new seals as well as new door weatherstripping installed. Climb in and youll be surrounded by light rose horizontal tufted inserts and ultra-wide white vinyl bolsters which are on front and back benches. The back bench is noteworthy as it has an armrest inserted and above is framed by a multiple stepped V with the Ford logo inside...just beautifully cool in its own way. These seats are fronted by a perfect dash, in magenta and white metal, and with all correct instruments. All this is floating within an impeccable black thick pile carpet that has had sound deadener installed underneath. The headliner is just as impressive on the inside with the stainless basket handle breaking it up, and in white perforated vinyl. The trunk has had the once over with snowshoe paint, and the correct Ford plaid trunk liner and more sound deadener. Drivetrain The original 272ci V8 is looking fine with its orange painted block and intake, black Thunderbird logoed valve covers and a showroom condition gray oil bath air cleaner, all complete with correct decals. Absolutely no corrosion under the hood, supple hoses and a pristine radiator. On top of the engine, we see a single 2-barrel carburetor, and on the back is a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. All power goes rearward to a Ford 9-inch rear axle weighing in with a 3.78 ratio. Undercarriage Very clean and definitely rust-free environment with a now black environment. A black and surface rusted frame remains structurally intact, and black floor pans that show slight road dirt and professionally replaced rear pans make up the underside. All body hangers and supports are intact as are the inner rockers. For the suspension we note independent coil springs in front, and leaf springs on the rear. Drum brakes are all around, and a dual exhaust system has been installed, albeit with mismatched mufflers. Drive-Ability My decoder partner in crime would be perfectly satisfied if every car was from the 50s, however variety is the spice of life, and this one has plenty of good taste. The car starts right up, runs like a champ, and rides like a dream. All instruments, fans etc were functioning, however the horn, radio, clock and heater blower are in need of repair. Also, we noted that the generator light would occasionally come on. I wanted to take the remainder of the day off and drive to the shore, but I could not get permission... If you are into 50s ultimate cool, with a smattering of creature comforts, diner like interior, and plenty of stainless shine, then this retro Fairlane may have your name on it. With a color combo that was probably in your grandparents bathroom on the first floor of their rancher, it is simply dripping with the mid 1950s, and is all in very nice condition and well restored.
