1956 Fairlane Club Sedan 'The NEW '56 Ford...with new and exclusive
new LIFEGUARD DESIGN!' The 1956 Ford was not only built to be
beautiful and perform well, but Ford was also heavily promoting
their safety features that year. The 'Double Grip Door Latches' to
prevent doors opening in the event of a crash and the 'Deep Dish
Safety Design Steering Wheel' are examples of these Lifeguard
Designs. The 1955-1956 Fords are now regarded as one of the most
beautiful and collectible cars of the 1950s! Here we have a
beautiful Fairlane Club Sedan that has been well loved by its past
owners. This is believed to be only a three owner car with 58k
original miles. It has been serviced well through the years, but
remains mostly an unrestored type car and should remain as such.
This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events,
local car shows, or just own/drive for fun! This car will be a
treasure for your family to own for years to come and a great
investment too... Features: � Original sticker price: $2,045.00 �
