Classic Car Overview

For consignment a Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria from 1956. This beauty sports a 312ci Thunderbird Special engine with a 4 BBL carb, newly restored interior, an AM/FM radio, all new chrome, and Vintage AC. Dont forget the swoop spear on either side. Its one cool cat daddy-o. Exterior We are treated to straight steel panels, well minded gaps, and wonderful 2 tone Peacock Blue with Colonial White. 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 blue 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. A wide rocket trim is open and the basket handle trim running across the roofline begins on either side of the B pillar trim. On back, 2 simple round tail lights with a pointed backup triangular shaped backup light just above. The Peacock Blue covers the lowers and sides as well as the roof of the car, and the Colonial White is on the hood, upper sides and trunk, what a great combo! A shout out to all 4 corners with their chromed wire inserts and dish like center hubs, 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 blue 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 chrome. Slipping our eyes inside, we see front and rear benches stretching from door to door, and covered in white vinyl and have fern-like blue damask fern-like inserts that are squared off at the back and fronts. Fronting these luscious seats is a metal dash in full restored style. Blue dash top and lowers with a wide white stripe running through the center matches the seats. A semicircular gauge cluster is on a white background. Seen is a newer AM/FM radio, and Vintage AC. A big blue bakelite steering wheel fronts the dash, blue carpeting floods the floors, and above is a tight white headliner broken up by the wide chromed basket handle. Neato! Drivetrain Under that big hood, is the original to the car 312ci V8 engine. This was also restored and rebuilt, and shows in a Ford red block with red cylinder heads and cast ribbed valve coverings with a Thunderbird badge in their centers. It is topped by a 4 barrel carburetor, and on back is a 3 speed manual tranny with overdrive pushing power rearward to a Ford 9 inch 4.11 rear axle. The engine bay is very clean, hoses are supple and like new as is all wiring and belts. Cmon snake lets rattle! Undercarriage Nicely preserved noting a tiny little surface rust, but mostly clean and nice black steel structure all solid. Floor pans and rockers are nicely coated in rustproofing, and dual glass pack exhaust has been put on doubling the original so there could be dual pipes sticking out the rear of the bumper. Independent coil springs for the front suspension and leaf springs are on the back and power drum brakes are all around. That razzes my berries. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and just a neat car to drive that idles like a dream, and its a good dream. She accelerates smoothly going through the gears and up to a smooth cruising speed. The ride is excellent. Cornering is good for 1956, and stopping is very quick with the power brakes. The clock is in-op, the heater blower is weak, and the Treadle-Vac is a bit weak causing a soft pedal. Motion the car hop over, I need a malt! A 3 owner car, where it underwent a full body redux, interior recovering much like the original, and a full engine rebuild. Since then, a new fuel pump, carburetor, Vintage AC and an AM/FM radio have been added. All newly re-chromed, (and this is saying a lot!). 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.
