292 V8, COLD A/C, P/S, P/B, FRONT DISC, ORIGINAL COLORS, CONTINENTAL KIT, RARE!
Not just beautiful, but exceptionally rare, too - that's what you'll tell everyone at the car shows when they see this 1956 Ford Crown Victoria. After all, less than 2% of '56 Fairlane production was this top-of-the-line Crown Victoria. So those who love distinction should dig into the details on this well-restored coupe.
This Crown Vic knows how to make a scene the moment it arrives. The two-tone Peacock Blue and Colonial White is a factory-correct color combination, and they invested in a high-quality, high-gloss respray. The reason why this looks fresh on everything is because there's less than 3,400 miles on the car since restoration. Fords of this era were truly distinctive with their sweeping chrome trim that runs from the headlight all the way back to the tail. And it's the perfect way to separate the two-tone combination. It's easy to distinguish the Crown Victorias as the range-topping end of the already premium Ford Fairlanes, because only these have the encompassing brightwork that visually separates the front and rear passenger compartments. You can really tell they made a big investment in the chrome, because not only does the trim shine with distinction, but also the big chrome bumpers and desirable Kelsey Hayes wire wheels. And because this is going for the best in 1950s premium, you also have all the right custom touches like fender skirts, dual antennas, and whitewall tires. There's also the Continental kit with the dual exhaust coming out of the bumper - just like Ford's other premium car: the Thunderbird.
Inside feels like a time machine. The two-tone interior is exceptionally attractive with bright white seats and textured blue peacock pattern inserts. The carpeting, sun visors, headliner, dash, and all other essentials have a crisp and fresh appearance. In the highest echelon of Ford coupes, even the rear seats received the same style treatment. And the roomy bench even has an armrest for individual luxury. So family and friends will love to go for a ride, especially with the added R-134A A/C blowing cold! And while the whole package has a very crisp and vintage presentation, there's an AM/FM stereo with modern USB/AUX hidden the glovebox. So you can keep the classic atmosphere but still have the best in modern driving music.
The Thunderbird badging on the front fender is no accident. Ford's 292 cubic-inch motor was called the Thunderbird V8, and so it earns the badging on the outside and the stylish valve covers on the big/bold red engine. Not only is this era-correct block one of the largest motors Ford offered back then, but also this one has been enhanced with a Carter AFB competition-series four-barrel carburetor. This restored coupe fires up nicely, runs well, and makes a nice but dignified tune out of the dual exhaust. It really is built to cruise with a smooth feeling out on the road that comes from an overall investment in quality. There's also power steering, power brakes, rear air shocks, and the two-speed automatic transmission. Plus, you'll really appreciate the added stopping power from the upgrade to drilled and slotted front disc brakes.
