Classic Car Overview

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this beautiful 1956 Parklane for your consideration. Powering this Parklane is the Thunderbird Y block, 292ci V8 motor paired to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. The Parklane was a 28-month project, every single part was either brand spanking new (NOS) or very professionally refinished. The total cost of all upholstery came to $17,000 alone including rugs and all panels with the intricate details, tailgate, and floor wells. There is chrome everywhere to the tune of $10,000 in the replating, breakaway mirror, travel compass, and plug. The side mirrors were optional along with the tissue dispenser. The tailgate came from Colorado, NOS parking light housing, and hood bird, one really rare option was a "traffic viewer" mounted on the dash. Because the car has a rain shield canopy, (a $2,500 item) you can not see any overhead traffic lights. The traffic viewer on the dash does the viewing for you. Other things noteworthy to mention are riveted brake shoes and a custom-made stainless steel exhaust system, 1933 Mercury taillights. So if you are in the market for one of the cleanest Parklanes, this is the car for you! Drive this one out of our showroom or have us assist with shipping it to you anywhere in the United States! Dont hesitate to give us a call with any questions or for more information.



The Parklane is a two-door station wagon, sharing its bodyshell with the Ford Ranch Wagon. To distinguish the model line, the Parklane received the stainless-steel bodyside stripe of the Fairlane (otherwise reserved for three-row Country Sedans). While the roofline was shared directly with the Ranch Wagon, the B-pillar was trimmed in stainless steel (a design element loosely adapted from the Fairlane Crown Victoria). The model line introduced several advanced features for the time, including a fully-carpeted interior (including the cargo area) and a privacy cover for the cargo area. As a $60 option, the Park Lane was offered with 4-way front power seats. In line with other Ford station wagons, the rear seat of the Park Lane folded completely flat, forming a single flat load surface. The Parklane shared its powertrain offerings with other Ford station wagons. A 223 cubic-inch inline-6 was the standard engine, with a 292 cubic-inch V8 (shared with the Thunderbird) being offered as an option. The 11-inch drum brakes introduced for 1955 were fitted to the model line.
