292 V8, FORD-O-MATIC 3SPD, CLEAN IN/OUT, RUNS & DRIVES GR8, COOL COLOR COMBO!!
Ford was hitting on all eight cylinders in 1955, and the dazzling Fairlane Victoria hardtop had a style edge on the shoebox Chevys. With the big 292 V8 and a great interior, this two-tone hardtop is true art deco on wheels.
Following quite close to the '50s color scheme of Bermuda Blue and Snowshoe White, this Victoria really has great '50s flair. 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 Thunderbird-inspired taillights, it's all shining to grab attention.
The blue and white interior coordinates nicely with the exterior. We're especially fond of the two-tone button-top seats that are comfortable to sit in and great to show off when this one is parked. Plus, the side panels, headliner, and dash are all part of this blue and white package to create a quality uniform appearance. And speaking of the dash, we know you love the period-correct touches like the Thunderbird-style Plexiglas speedometer and the AM radio for display. Plus, the blue and chrome steering wheel remains in great shape. The level of detail on this coupe even extends to the trunk where it still has its stand-up full size spare with correct blue 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. And not only powerful, but the presentation looks quite nice in the engine bay. The bold blue block and bright classic Ford valve covers are the kind of attention-grabbers that will make you proud to show off this V8. Out on the road, the optional Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission keeps everything running smooth as you enjoy the throaty sounds of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. It's these kinds of touches that keep the Fairlane Victoria one of the coolest ways aimlessly wander the boulevard on a Saturday night. Of course, when the Sunday car show comes, you'll be glad this one is on wire wheel covers with whitewalls for the ultimate 1950s tribute.
You're looking at a complete and cool turn-key cruiser. So when a coupe like this is so nicely priced, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
