You're checking out this 1956 Ford Courier sedan delivery because
just like us, at a quick glance you said "Wow!" This is a rare
sight in the classic car world, and as you dive into the nicely
coordinated package, you realize this is one of the most
attention-grabbing vehicles you can ever arrive in.
This is the coolest delivery vehicle around, so we know you are
instantly imagining all the places you will go. This car is such an
attention getter that it can basically a mobile billboard. That's
because the professional respray of the factory correct Raven Black
has a high-gloss finish that can really attract eyeballs. But what
really makes this striking is the brightwork. The Fairlane was
having an iconic year in '56, and this one borrows that front end.
The full-width grille with bumper and turning lights both reaching
around the sides really give this a 10,000-watt smile. And there's
a terrific body trim line that encircles the upper-half, and even
runs uninterrupted across the big rear door. Ford family crest hub
caps, jet-inspired taillight, and even rear fender skirts come with
the sale. So it has a true classic style, right down to the
details. And that's what makes this sedan delivery so impressive.
It carries all the great chrome and style of a '50s American icon,
and it can also carry all your equipment, too.
The interior as a simple but clean look that tells you they
restored this to remind you of its commercial-ready roots. The
stylized Ford wheel gives way to padded dashboard and the cool
recessed gauge package (these attractive items are actually from
Ford's Lifeguard safety package.) But the most interesting part is
all behind you. The carpeted cargo area has a practical side where
there's no glass to get in the way of carrying large or fragile
items. Heck, you could even just use this as a surf wagon and camp
out at the beach if you want.
You probably noticed the V8 emblem on the front fender. It means
Ford's trusty and powerful 272 cubic-inch Ford Y-block is under the
hood. The investment in the V8 was about keeping this quite
authentic, including the bold red block, oil bath air cleaner with
Ford callout, and even the generator. They did upgrade the car to a
12-volt electrical system, and that also means being able to put an
effective electric fan on the radiator. That's the kind of thing
that makes this classic a better cruiser. The same goes for the
dual circuit brake master cylinder and automatic transmission.
A rare classic that has a solid presentation and an obtainable
price - this is a total package deal that you will love to get in
your garage or in front of your business. But you're not the only
one with big plans for this Courier, so hurry up and call
