Just the sight of a classic panel wagon gets everyone from surfers to business owners excited. But when this 1955 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery is upgraded with a proper V8 and more versatile five-speed, well you know it becomes an irresistible classic to everyone.
The Waterfall Blue and Snowshoe White is a really cool two-tone. It takes the period-correct colors and gives them the kind of deeper shine you get on a vehicle that was restored within the last few years. In fact, you can also tell this has been given all the right more recent investments in the way the panels align, the weather-stripping is pliable, and the bumpers have a mirror-like shine. It's a great classic look, but that's not all you love about this panel wagon. It also has the unmistakable look of classic power. It's in the details, including the bright dual exhaust tips and competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.
Sedan delivery vehicles were developed for utility, but this custom build makes sure to add in comfort and style. It starts with the bucket seats. These have a fresh presentation of the classic cruiser style. And it is wonderfully detailed with the white tuck and roll style insert with contrasting black stitching. Even the door panels were done to match. The dash, headliner, sun visors coordinate, too. And the full black carpeting extends to the cargo area making this great for carrying business supplies or just the coolest weekend camper around. Even if you just want this for a fun classic, this Ford knows how to do it right. You have a true classic style mixed with upgrades like a cup holder center console and a Hurst floor shifter.
The engine bay is the right mix of style and substance. For example, this was born a six-cylinder car, but they upgraded it to a 272 cubic-inch V8 (which debuted in 1955.) And this really has the classic look correct, right down to the Thunderbird Special valve covers. But this has also been upgraded correctly for modern driving with features like the 12-volt electrical system, alternator, and an aluminum radiator. Plus, this V8 inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power and authority as a set of Red's headers feed the dual exhaust. This is the kind of classic that wants you to really have a vintage feeling out on the road. But they still want it to be versatile, and so you have an upgraded five-speed manual transmission to control it all.
Complete with maintenance records, this is a classic that will look just as good in your garage as it would in front of your business, and so we know there are plenty of people who want it. Hurry up and call today!
