You're checking out this 1956 Ford Courier sedan delivery because just like us, at a quick glance you said "Wow!" This is a rare sight in the classic car world, and as you dive into the nicely coordinated package, you realize this is one of the most attention-grabbing vehicles you can ever arrive in.
This is the coolest delivery vehicle around, so we know you are instantly imagining all the places you will go. This car is such an attention getter that it can basically a mobile billboard. That's because the professional respray of the factory correct Raven Black has a high-gloss finish that can really attract eyeballs. But what really makes this striking is the brightwork. The Fairlane was having an iconic year in '56, and this one borrows that front end. The full-width grille with bumper and turning lights both reaching around the sides really give this a 10,000-watt smile. And there's a terrific body trim line that encircles the upper-half, and even runs uninterrupted across the big rear door. Ford family crest hub caps, jet-inspired taillight, and even rear fender skirts come with the sale. So it has a true classic style, right down to the details. And that's what makes this sedan delivery so impressive. It carries all the great chrome and style of a '50s American icon, and it can also carry all your equipment, too.
The interior as a simple but clean look that tells you they restored this to remind you of its commercial-ready roots. The stylized Ford wheel gives way to padded dashboard and the cool recessed gauge package (these attractive items are actually from Ford's Lifeguard safety package.) But the most interesting part is all behind you. The carpeted cargo area has a practical side where there's no glass to get in the way of carrying large or fragile items. Heck, you could even just use this as a surf wagon and camp out at the beach if you want.
You probably noticed the V8 emblem on the front fender. It means Ford's trusty and powerful 272 cubic-inch Ford Y-block is under the hood. The investment in the V8 was about keeping this quite authentic, including the bold red block, oil bath air cleaner with Ford callout, and even the generator. They did upgrade the car to a 12-volt electrical system, and that also means being able to put an effective electric fan on the radiator. That's the kind of thing that makes this classic a better cruiser. The same goes for the dual circuit brake master cylinder and automatic transmission.
A rare classic that has a solid presentation and an obtainable price - this is a total package deal that you will love to get in your garage or in front of your business. But you're not the only one with big plans for this Courier, so hurry up and call today!
