This 1956 Ford Customline Rach Wagon has a sharp-looking gloss
exterior, attractively restored interior, and a larger V8 to go
with its cruising attitude. It makes for the ideal two-door
grocery-getter for those who love to drive and show off a distinct
Two-door wagons were a big part of 1950s fun, and today they seem
to offer an extra hint of sporty style. This example seems to unite
both of those feelings. It starts with a well-done white paint that
has a timeless sense of style and an attractive gloss. The full
length silver streak needs truly straight sheetmetal for it to make
this kind of stellar impression over the whole body. Thick chrome
bumpers, jet-inspired tail lights, and upgraded Torq Thrust wheels
- this is a great total package. So we bet you're already imagining
spending the day at the car show with the two-piece tailgate open
for a picnic-style afternoon.
The blue interior has the sharp style of a solid investment.
Beautiful seats with cloth inserts, detailed door panels, plush
carpeting, and a taut headliner all make this a nice place to spend
some time. It's nicely detailed, right down to the working dome
light and carpeting in the rear. There are provisions for some
worthwhile upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM/cassette and R134a air
conditioning (they will need servicing to full function again.)
You'll love slipping behind the vintage steering wheel with Ford
family crest at the center. Beyond that is the classic speedometer,
but it's now flanked by well-integrated AutoMeter Pro-Comp
Under the hood is the right kind of upgrade. The overhead valve V8
era was just beginning to heat up at Ford when this wagon was
introduced, but this one utilizes the larger 352 cubic-inch motor
that was introduced later in the 1950s. So you get a classic Ford
powerhouse with the best displacement of the era. And because this
wants to be a useful driver, you also have upgrades like a Mallory
distributor, upgraded coil, and an aluminum radiator. It fires up
nicely with a dignified sound from the dual exhaust. You'll enjoy
hitting the road, because this wagon has an automatic transmission,
power brakes, upgraded front discs, and wide modern tires to make
This is the stylish two-door wagon that loves to cruiser. So if you
want to hit the streets in one of the coolest grocery-getters
around, you need to call today!
