The cool two-tone of this 1955 Ford Customline kicks off a highly
original-style presentation that continues all the way down to the
V8 power. So dig into the details on a car where they made the
right investments but it never loses that vintage feeling.
The factory-correct Mountain Green and Snowshoe White two-tone has
a great 1950s look. That's especially true, because all the colors
are separated by plenty of bright trim. Of course, the piece we
like the most is the full-sweeping side piece that was a hallmark
of Fords. This one really does have a terrific sense of vintage
style, including the intricate grille, Ford family crest badging,
and Thunderbird-inspired taillights. Even the upgraded smoothie
wheels with newer whitewalls provide added distinction while still
Inside is more of that classic pastel look with a full green
interior. The setup received some nice attention later in life, and
so you get comfy tweed-like cloth inserts in the seats. The
dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the plexiglass
speedometer, which was a true style marvel of its time. In fact,
the whole dash has a well-done stock look, right down to the AM
radio that's still on display. But because this is a classic made
for driving you have some essential upgrades cleanly mounted under
the dash, like a water temp gauge and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB
input to plug in your phone.
Under the hood is Ford's 272 cubic-inch V8 motor. This is believed
to be the original engine to the car, and it has been given the
right investments for a great stock-style presentation. It includes
the tall oil bath air cleaner, bold red block, and Ford script on
the valve covers. And once again, you'll see the right
driver-oriented upgrades, like the aluminum radiator. The
three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the V8
with that classic column-shifted feeling, and the glasspack dual
exhaust adds a nice tone to the motor's soundtrack.
This is the vintage ride that's meant to drive. So if you love true
