GORGEOUS RESTO, FACTORY COLORS, Y-BLOCK 292 V8, PWR STEER, AUTO, PRICED TO SELL!
Ford was hitting on all eight cylinders in 1956, and the dazzling Fairlane Victoria hardtop had a style edge on the shoebox Chevys. With a trendsetting design that still resonates today, the big 292 V8, and terrific restored color combo inside & out, this two-tone hardtop is true art deco on wheels.
Following its factory-correct Mandarin Orange and Colonial White, this Victoria really has great '50s flair. This has the kind of gloss and shine that tells you someone made a solid investment in the car's restoration. These Fords were instantly recognizable with their sweeping chrome trim that divided the two-tone combinations, and it extended from the headlight all the way back to the tail. It serves to lengthen the car and adds artful angles to the sheetmetal. Speaking of the panels, take some time to appreciate how straight every piece looks. Without this attention to detail the trim would never look as stellar, and the pillarless hardtop profile wouldn't be this nice. But the real reason why you love a classic Ford is all that brightwork, and on any '50s car, the chrome restoration costs can be staggering. So you'll be so glad to see it complete and the quality consistent. From the grille flanked by large parking lights, to the form-fitting chrome bumpers, to the Thunderbird-inspired taillights – it's all shining to grab attention.
The coordinating two-tone interior is quite impressive. You can once again instantly recognize the product of a quality restoration, and so it's ready to be shared with the world on your open hardtop coupe. That's why everything is in show ready condition, including the matching two-tone door panels, dashboard, and carpets. All the original gauges are functional, plus, the orange and chrome steering wheel remains looking sharp. This Fairlane Victoria was truly meant for cruising around the town, and so you are upgraded to an AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner. But it's retro-style appearance means more modern music without jeopardizing the vintage atmosphere. The level of detail on this coupe even extends to the trunk where it has the correct the correct mat, jack, and stand-up full size spare with correct orange steel wheel.
More of this Thunderbird lineage can be seen when you open the hood. The 292 cubic-inch Ford Y-block V8 motor was an optional powerplant borrowed from Ford's ultimate personal cruiser. There's even an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor to give this V8 extra power. And not only powerful, but the presentation quite looks authentic in the engine bay. The bold block, glossy black valve covers, and large silver air topper make this coupe look like a time machine. And as you look over the undercharge photos you'll spot the right pieces like the red oxide paint and newer A-arms. Plus, with the optional two-speed automatic transmission and power steering, this Fairlane Victoria one of the coolest ways aimlessly wander the boulevard on a Saturday night.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an exceptionally restored classic offered at a terrific price. So don't let this stunning hardtop slip away. Call today!!!
