Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With a cool two-tone full color theme inside & out and an upgraded V8 heart, this 1956 Ford Customline Victoria has the kind of stylish hardtop style that makes it an all-around ideal classic cruiser.
This is the one that really brings some great elements together. The trim tag tells us this is a true Victoria, but the desirable pillarless hardtop profile already told you that. And the Customline's side trim was particularly attractive this year with two sporty overlapping broad strokes to cover the full length of the car. And the color theme really highlights it particularly well by utilizing it as the separation border for the Colonial White and Diamond Blue. The finish has the right look of clean and complete with an easy to enjoy attitude that won't make you nervous to drive it. Plus, this one really earns its desirability with bright chrome, good body lines, and the right hint of custom attitude. It's everywhere from the American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels, to the pinstriping around that borrows the red from the Ford logo and the car's cool blue for a very thoughtful style.
You're going to want to leave all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop just so people can get a full view inside. The custom color-matched blue and white interior is pure 1950s cool, especially with the tuck and roll insert in the seats and doors. Plus, this has a terrific classic style, right down to the color-matched steering wheel with the Ford family crest still in the center. But there are also well-integrated upgrades that make it easier to enjoy. You have a proper set of seatbelts in both rows, and the auxiliary gauge trio added under the dash lets you keep a full eye on what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay has the clean look of an obvious upgrade. After all, Ford's mighty 302 cubic-inch V8 was years away in 1956, and this one proudly announces this power everywhere from the air grabber to the valve covers. This is said to have been rebuilt only about 1k miles ago, and it has the fresh look and strong running nature to reaffirm that feeling. The V8 inhales with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a dignified tune from the glasspack style dual exhaust. And they even added an aluminum radiator to help keep the full package running cool. A three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires all make this two-tone Ford a true easy cruiser.
If a car needs a theme, you'd say this one is all about an upgraded style that's also ideal for carefree cruising. It makes for a cool hardtop you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
