Fairlane 1956

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Green Metallic
Interior Color Dark Green


This 1956 Ford Fairlane is true nostalgia. There have been the right investments keeping this one looking vintage - right down to the awesome-looking and correct V8. Plus, there's a little extra hint of shine on this one to make sure it always lights up like your best memories.

The Pine Ridge Green and Meadow Mist Green really have a great 1950s flair. The trim tag tells us this was the original color combo, but this two-tone has been updated later in life to have a nice metallic element and a modern clearcoat finish. So it loves to radiate in the sunlight. And a Club Sedan like this is all about the radiance. 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's appearance 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 profile wouldn't be this nice. They even made sure to get the details right, like the whitewalls, fender skirts, and color-matched wheels with bright factory wheel covers over them. Even the exhaust still correctly exits through the rear bumper. There's also a touch of added flair everywhere from the half chrome headlights to the blue-dot taillights.

The two-tone green interior coordinates nicely with the exterior. It's comfortable to sit in, and textured button-top inserts on the seats are great to show off when this one is parked. Plus, the side panels, carpeting, and dash are all part of this harmonized package to create a cool uniform appearance. This a true time capsule interior, and so you get everything from the Thunderbird-style gauge cluster, to a correct trunk with color-match spare wheel. The only modern upgrade you're likely to spot is a well-integrated retro-style AM/FM digital tune w/aux input. It keeps the vintage atmosphere while also upgrading your driving music.

The Thunderbird callouts on the front fender were not lying, and so under the hoods is the M-code 292 cubic-inch V8. That was an optional powerplant borrowed from Ford's ultimate personal cruiser. It's not only one of the largest motors Ford offered back then, but it also came standard with a four-barrel carburetor (now upgraded to an Edelbrock 4 barrel) to give this coupe the power to be an anywhere kind of cruiser. This was a special car when it left the factory, and so it is great to see it with the year-correct block in such a good-looking engine bay. The V8 wears its correct oil bath air cleaner, Thunderbird valve covers, and a bright red engine block. It fires up nicely, makes a sweet sound from the dual exhaust, and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. So this is a true classic that still makes a great cruiser.

This is a stand-out Ford that shines as bright as your nostalgia. Don't let something this beautiful slip through your fingers. Call today!!!
