This 1956 Ford Mainline does a great job of keeping the true cruiser style of Ford\'s mainstream offering. But as you look over the whole car, you can also see it has been tastefully updated in the right places to maximize its vintage appeal.
This has the right look we like on a Mainline. It\'s not trying for a modern fancy style with extra-wide wheels or a big hood scoop. Instead, it retains a true vintage look where you can take time to see original details like how the trim looks like two chrome bumpers wrapping around the front and the tailfins with afterburner style tail lights. Even the upgraded red paint has an honesty and driver quality that looks right for a mainstream car. But while the Mainline is the working-class hero, this one also likes to take advantage of the admiration that grows with age. So it was upgraded with the best pieces of the \'56 Fords. It starts with the Fairlane\'s silver streak full-length trim It was one of the best-looking features of the era with the kind of stylish appeal of a Wurlitzer jukebox. So You know it\'s an addition we\'re always happy to see. It also utilizes fender skirts, updated wheel covers, upgraded dual exhaust tips, and both Fairlane and Club Sedan badging.
The interior has a cool two-tone style. It looks particularly nice on the seats with detailed and comfortable upholstery. It coordinates nicely with the headliner, carpeting, dash, and two-tone door panels. It\'s all about being an attractive car with a driver-ready feeling at its heart. That\'s why you have nice cruiser upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner that includes modern Bluetooth. And you can hear your favorite music loud and clear thanks to upgraded Kicker panel speakers. Plus, the auxiliary readouts under the dash give you a clear view of what\'s going on under the hood.
In a vehicle so unique already, it\'s really cool to see a period-correct 223 cubic-inch inline-six under the hood. After all, the bold red block and intake stand out nicely against the all the tidy black of the engine bay. You\'re going to want to drive this Ford, and so the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this motor while also creating that ideal classic feeling.
This Mainline gives you the right mix of an honest classic that has also been given the right investments for a true cruiser. That makes for true vintage fun. Call today!!!
