Blue/white 1956 Ford Crown Victoria 272 CID V 8 3 Speed Automatic
Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to offer this stunning turquoise and white 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria 2-door coupe.
Ford sold a ton of Fairlanes in 1956 but only around 9,000 top trim level Crown Victorias were delivered to customers. Painted in a two-tone turquoise and white, classy Fords like this were easily some of the adored cars of the 1950’s, with their eye-catching styling features such as the chrome “Tiara” band running across the top connecting the B-pillars and “Continental Kit” spare tire holder. Of course, that’s not the only brightwork you’ll find on this fancy Ford – the window moldings, side sweep moldings, front/rear bumpers, and dual spotlights all add chrome pizazz.
Powering this Crown Vic is a 272 CID Thunderbird V8 with one noticeably “not original” add-on: a big Holley 4BBL carb.
This model came with the 3-speed “Ford-O-Matic” automatic transmission, with the shifter located on the column.
According to its current owner, the engine was rebuilt in the mid-1990’s and has only about 18,000 miles on it since the rebuild, which was done by the previous owner during their 30 year ownership of the car.
This Crown Vic is riding on original style 7.1-15 Wide White Sidewall bias ply tires, which are wrapped around its wire hubcap-equipped steelies.
Inside, it’s hard to beat the simplistic, yet functional interior on this Crown Victoria, from the two-tone white vinyl with turquoise cloth insert bench seats to the original dash with a full set of gauges for the driver to enjoy. There’s also an AM radio to the right of the instrument cluster.
This 1956 Ford Crown Victoria is well-optioned, with its AM Radio, Continental kit, dual spotlights, stone guards, wire wheel covers, fender skirts, power brakes, and power steering. It also has a spare tire and jack.
This car has won many show awards, and a substantial amount of them are included with the car.
