There's something special to a car like this 1956 Ford Mainline. They were once the everyday cars of everyday people, and 65 years later, most of them went to the crusher or became street rods. So they are a rarity today, especially with a correct and classic attitude like this.
The mid-50s Fords were great cars. They had plenty of Thunderbird-style flair with headlight overhang and afterburner-style taillights. Plus, even these Mainline models had terrific brightwork, and this looks sharp on the wraparound bumpers, wide grille, sleek side trim, and artfully integrated hood ornament. The Mainline name is a great reminder of what people really bought and drove in the '50s, and this has a terrific stock appearance - right down to Ford family crest in the wheel covers. But they did upgrade the paint later in life to a red with a hint of metallic. It allows this honest two-door sedan to have a touch of flair... After all, a true classic needs a little extra radiance.
The interior shows that they made sure that this classic still stays comfortable. You see it in places the quality of the cloth seating, plush carpeting, and the taut headliner. Nothing appears out of place for a 1950s machine, including a hint of patina on the trim. So it all looks and feels correct for this car. The radio even remains a classic tuner style unit. But now it's an AM/FM/cassette with aux input to give you better driving music.
Because this has such a classic presentation, it's great to see the correct-style 233 cubic-inch inline-six under the hood. And because it's built to be a driver's classic, there are the right upgrades, like a 12-volt electrical system and alternator. The motor runs smooth out on the road, and you have worthwhile upgrades like power front disc brakes and modern Michelin tires. But the overall impression remains a true vintage experience thanks to the control of the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission.
This is the kind of car that reminds you of what true 1950s motoring is all about. And there have even been the right well-placed upgrades to make sure this classic remains a true driver. That makes for an irresistible combo you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
