Classic Car Overview

1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria The Ford Fairlane is an automobile model that was sold between 1955 and 1970 by Ford in North America. The name is derived from Henry Fords estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-sized car but became a mid-sized car for the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although in that market it was considered a large car. Any time we get stunning 50s era Detroit metal into our Classic Auto Mall showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesnt stick around very long. This is a 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria that has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. Its the perfect car for anyone who wants an accurate, exceptionally well-done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves. Exterior With a blending of Fiesta Red and Colonial White this car takes the term paint job to another level. Very well done with minute inclusions, and a great shine. These areas of 2 tone are bordered by the use of a chrome side spear swoop, chrome rocker trim, chrome window surrounds chrome badging, and very nice chrome bumpers. From the front of the hood cloisonn?? shield, to the jet age hood ornament, and Fairlane badging in your grandmothers handwriting we are in drive in-heaven. Wide whites with dish caps and more cloisonn?? shields are sitting on all 4 corners. Very straight steel panels, great consistent gaps, slight hint of fins, and just perfectly placed paint patterns, get your DA greased, put the cigs in your sleeve and lets move to the inside...Ca, ca, ca, cool man! Interior Pushing the pristine chrome button, and pulling on that handle, we move the swoop spear swoop out of the way so we can slide on in. Feasting our eyes on this very 50s, very nicely done interior Im in love...me tender. With masterful use of red and white vinyl, and of course plenty of chrome borders, the door panels have me all shook up. I take in the rose pattern stitched cloth inserts in Fiesta Red and dark red textured background with just a hint of metal thread use, and the wonderful white vinyl bolsters and surrounds and it is just killer. A split bench in front and a rear solid bench swim in a sea of wonderful red thick pile carpet. Gazing forward we greet the 2-tone exterior matching dash in all steel. Gauges are very clean, sport chromed bezels, and all work, even the clock! An original steering wheel in Fiesta Red, is bordered on the inside by the pie shaped horn ring that leaves a 1/3 portion out at the top just to keep your interest. A tight headliner in white floats above the interior and shows no stains. Well thats alright baby, lets go to the Drivetrain section. Drivetrain Some time was spent here with a nifty engine bay restoration, and it includes a 292ci Thunderbird V8 with a block in red, and shiny black all over. A simple metal air cleaner covers a 4-barrel carburetor. Ford-O-Matic provides the 3-speed transmission and it throws power back to a Ford 8-inch rear. Hoses, electrical wiring, and radiator are also well sorted, and all shining brightly. Cruising up past your friends in this car will leave them in heartbreak hotel fer shur. Undercarriage Sometime prior to the time we release this car to its new owner, Im going to eat my dinner off the underside...yes, its that clean and rust free. Structurally very sound, front suspension looks new (but it may not be) and we see 4-wheel power drum brakes, independent coil spring suspension in front, and leaf spring in the rear. Just a nice job performing the restoration under here. You aint nuthin but a hound dog... Drive-Ability Our crack in-house decoder and car expert fought over who was going to drive this one! And we resolved it by both doing so. This car started without a hiccup, shifts beautifully, has a great cushy ride, and is comfortable to sit in. Its definitely a boulevard cruiser, could be a shower, but for now Im sticking to driving her. I cant help falling in love...with this wonderful car. We have a turnkey classic, that drips with midcentury styling, plenty of chrome, an awesome interior, beautiful and smooth-running engine, great paint and color combination, and ready to roll. Now Im really all shook up ohh hoo hoo ohh yeah yeah!
