This 1955 Ford Customline has a stylish two-tone inside and out. So when you have a proper V8 cruiser like this, that's also offered for a value price, you know it's time to pay attention.
There was a restoration to this car in the early 2010s, and Ford fans can instantly spot the difference. This Customline has the full-length trim of the up-market Victoria line. And this kind of upgrade is a terrific idea if you love a good 1950s classic. After all, it gives the car a clear dividing line down the profile, which now allows for a tastefully done two-tone. So the paint was also upgraded during the restoration. Raven Black and Snowshoe White have the kind of timeless appeal as a tuxedo, and since this a car that has been treated with respect, it continues to have a good shine even after being enjoyed. So there is certainly a hint of upper-class feel on this one. All the chrome and trim is in good order with a few signs of age, but there's no arguing that this isn't a sharp-looking car.
The same attractive two-tone continues inside. This is part of the restoration upgrade, and so it strikes the right balance of fresher than the 1950s, but broken-in enough to make you want to go for a ride. In fact, as a true cruising classic, you have the right upgrades, such as front seatbelts and an auxiliary gauge trio. But this one is not overly done to take away the vintage atmosphere. That's why you have the thin/grippy steering wheel with Henry Ford's family crest as the center, and this two-door has the same cool plexiglass speedometer as the Thunderbird that also debuted this year.
Another great piece that the right Fords shared with the Thunderbird is Ford's Y-block V8. This is even believed to be its largest factory displacement: 312 cubic-inches. It was rebuilt with the restoration, and now there's even an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor on top. It makes for a torque-filled motor that runs strong. You'll like the vintage feeling this one has on the road, right down to the mellow dual exhaust tone and the crisp action of the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
This classic two-tone Ford offers the right vintage feel and the right elegant touchs. So you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
