CORRECT 292 V8, AUTO, POWER STEERING, POWER WINDOWS, RARE, 1 OF ONLY 603 MADE!

Ford's historic Victoria name is reserved for the top-tier cars, and none showed off the premium style better than the 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Skyliner. Not only did it have elegant lines, but also the big translucent bubble top roof makes it extremely distinctive and extremely rare.

Fords were instantly recognizable with their sweeping chrome trim extending from the headlight all the way back to the tail - creating the perfect dividing line between the two-tone red and black. Furthermore, it's easy to distinguish the Crown Victorias as the upper echelon of the already top-of-the-line Ford Fairlanes, because only these have the encompassing brightwork that visually separates the front and rear passenger compartments. This looks quite tasteful on the regular coupes, but the band of bright trim over the roof seems to be tailor-made for the Skyliner series. It's perfect to showcase the Plexiglas roof section that gives the front seat such a panoramic view and lets this Skyliner earn its name. This was an expensive feature when new that cost even more than a convertible. Thus, there were only about 600 examples made in its final year as a fixed coupe. That was exotic car rarity ...

CORRECT 292 V8, AUTO, POWER STEERING, POWER WINDOWS, RARE, 1 OF ONLY 603 MADE!

Ford's historic Victoria name is reserved for the top-tier cars, and none showed off the premium style better than the 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Skyliner. Not only did it have elegant lines, but also the big translucent bubble top roof makes it extremely distinctive and extremely rare.

Fords were instantly recognizable with their sweeping chrome trim extending from the headlight all the way back to the tail - creating the perfect dividing line between the two-tone red and black. Furthermore, it's easy to distinguish the Crown Victorias as the upper echelon of the already top-of-the-line Ford Fairlanes, because only these have the encompassing brightwork that visually separates the front and rear passenger compartments. This looks quite tasteful on the regular coupes, but the band of bright trim over the roof seems to be tailor-made for the Skyliner series. It's perfect to showcase the Plexiglas roof section that gives the front seat such a panoramic view and lets this Skyliner earn its name. This was an expensive feature when new that cost even more than a convertible. Thus, there were only about 600 examples made in its final year as a fixed coupe. That was exotic car rarity when new, and you can only imagine how fewer there are 65+ years later. So it's the kind of car that receives plenty of attention from collectors in the know. That's why they made sure this one continues to present well. The paint is an older respray that still retains a good gloss, the chrome has an excellent shine, and everything fits together well. And there are also plenty of elegant touches with the wire wheel covers, whitewall tires, and the faux dual exhaust tips in the rear bumper.

The two-tone interior is exceptionally attractive with black seats and textured red cloth inserts. Everything from the carpeting to the headliner has a crisp appearance. And the roomy rear bench even has an armrest for individual luxury. The whole package has a very clean and vintage presentation, right down to the dome light that greets you when you open the door. And because this was a premium range-topping car, it also has premium features, like provisions for power windows (some will need servicing to fully function again.) They even kept the classic AM radio on display, but your real driving music comes from a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth hidden in the glovebox. And the red tint to the special Plexiglas seems like a cool/coordinated way to let the sunshine in.

The Thunderbird badging on the front fender is no accident. Ford's 292 cubic-inch motor was called the Thunderbird V8, and this M-code car continues to carry the correct displacement with an era-correct block. The V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. The motor fires up easily and makes a dignified tune out of the dual exhaust. It really is built to cruise with good features like an automatic transmission, power steering, and modern touring tires.

This is the ultra-rare coupe that knows how to let the sunshine in. So it's time to let it into your life. Call today!!!
