For Sale: 1955 Ford Customline in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is honored to offer this beautiful and well-loved 1955 Ford Customline 2-door sedan for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. Positioned in Ford's lineup between the Mainline and Fairlane, the Customline was redesigned for '55 and was a sales success, turning nearly half a million units for the Dearborn-based automaker. This Fine Ford comes painted in a delightful "Waterfall Blue" (re-sprayed since new) and the shimmering chrome bumpers and trim reminds you that this '55, like many contemporary 1950's American automobiles, was a post-war prosperity symbol. Firestone wide white wall tires with chrome hubcaps complete the stock look on this lovely Customline. As you'd expect from this preserved Ford, the interior is in excellent condition and the front vinyl/cloth light blue bench seat is a comfortable place to sit. Dash and instrument gauges are also period correct but the biggest giveaway to this car's collector status is that "Three-on-the-Tree" (column shift) 3-speed manual transmission. It's amazing to think how many of us and our ancestors learned to drive with a similar set up. The powerplant under the hood of this '55 Ford is the 223 CID Inline 6 cylinder engine, rated at 120hp from the factory. No, it isn't the fastest car you can buy but this is a smooth, simple and reliable engine that's more than capable of taking this Customline to your destination. The motor is "numbers matching" (according to the seller) and has been well-maintained over its 3-owner lifetime. We have all kinds of sweet rides at Gateway Classic Cars but it's hard not to fall for a "survivor" car like this 1955 Ford Customline 2-door sedan for sale. Give our helpful and attentive Sales team a call today and we'll put our eyes and ears on this fresh '55 Ford for you to answer any additional questions.
