With a cool two-tone full color theme inside & out and an upgraded
V8 heart, this 1956 Ford Customline Victoria has the kind of
stylish hardtop style that makes it an all-around ideal classic
This is the one that really brings some great elements together.
The trim tag tells us this is a true Victoria, but the desirable
pillarless hardtop profile already told you that. And the
Customline's side trim was particularly attractive this year with
two sporty overlapping broad strokes to cover the full length of
the car. And the color theme really highlights it particularly well
by utilizing it as the separation border for the Colonial White and
Diamond Blue. The finish has the right look of clean and complete
with an easy to enjoy attitude that won't make you nervous to drive
it. Plus, this one really earns its desirability with bright
chrome, good body lines, and the right hint of custom attitude.
It's everywhere from the American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels, to
the pinstriping around that borrows the red from the Ford logo and
the car's cool blue for a very thoughtful style.
You're going to want to leave all the windows down on this
pillarless hardtop just so people can get a full view inside. The
custom color-matched blue and white interior is pure 1950s cool,
especially with the tuck and roll insert in the seats and doors.
Plus, this has a terrific classic style, right down to the
color-matched steering wheel with the Ford family crest still in
the center. But there are also well-integrated upgrades that make
it easier to enjoy. You have a proper set of seatbelts in both
rows, and the auxiliary gauge trio added under the dash lets you
keep a full eye on what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay has the clean look of an obvious upgrade. After all,
Ford's mighty 302 cubic-inch V8 was years away in 1956, and this
one proudly announces this power everywhere from the air grabber to
the valve covers. This is said to have been rebuilt only about 1k
miles ago, and it has the fresh look and strong running nature to
reaffirm that feeling. The V8 inhales with a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, and it exhales with a dignified tune from the glasspack
style dual exhaust. And they even added an aluminum radiator to
help keep the full package running cool. A three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide
modern tires all make this two-tone Ford a true easy cruiser.
If a car needs a theme, you'd say this one is all about an upgraded
style that's also ideal for carefree cruising. It makes for a cool
hardtop you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
