In order to compete with the popular tri five BelAir, Ford had to
do something. The answer? The Crown Victoria. Built on the Fairlane
platform the Crown Victoria was the highest trim level available.
These cars had a B pillar roofline but some clever designers fitted
the pillar with a wide stainless band which gave it a much sleeker
appearance than your typical post cars. The clean little 56 Crown
Vic you see here is a nice survivor type car. It has been kept all
stock and original. The current owners have had it since 2006 and
it has been very well cared for. It wears its original Red and
White paint which is cleanly accented by all of the original
trim/chrome which these cars had a TON of. The lights are all
working properly and up front half circle chrome covers have been
added. All of the glass is in good shape with no issues except the
passengers window which does have a crack. To each side of the
windshield dummy spot lights have been added which are a cool
vintage accent. They aren't in place in our pictures but the car
does come with a set of rear fender skirts. The car has a nice
stance and rides on a set of aftermarket SSC custom wheels with
Engine Code M V8 292 ci OHV - 4V Carb. (200hp MT, 202hp AT)
Production Year 6 1956
Assembly Plant D Dallas, TX

The car is powered by its original 292 Thunderbird Special V8 motor
which runs well. Everything has a stock original appearance. The
motor is paired with a 3 speed Fordomatic transmission that shifts
smoothly. The drum brakes stop well with no problems. On each side
the car has lake pipes but they are just for looks and not fully
The interior of the car is done in a matching Red and White which
looks great. It has a split bench seat up front and in rear. The
stock has the original layout and all of the original gauges,
knobs, trim, etc. The odometer shows 82,594 original miles. The
trunk is in good shape with a solid pan and houses the spare and
original jack setup.
This is a clean classic Crown Vic that has been kept very original
and runs well.
