For Sale: 1955 Ford Crown Victoria in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1955 Ford Crown Victoria

The Crown Victoria name first appeared in the Ford line-up in the 1955 model year as a high-fashion version of the Fairlane. Existing as a two-door coupe for 1955 and 1956, 24 years would pass before the Crown Victoria rejoined the Ford line-up.

For consignment, a 1955 Crown Victoria with all the right stuff..Two tone Seasprite green (turquoise) and Snowshoe White...CHECK! Swoop Spear..CHECK! Chromed "Basket Handle" roof..CHECK! Continental rear bumper..CHECK! Overall, Very nice condition...OH YEAH! Checkeroo!!

Exterior
From the side view this car appears to be moving forward even as it stands completely still! With its wide trimmed stainless window surrounds with a basket handle B pillar, to the gently curved rear rounded over glass, and the swoop spear with snowshoe white on the beltline, hood and trunk lid and sea sprite on the top and lowers. Our consignor states the paint is original and with a mere 35,538 original miles he may be correct! Straight steel rust free panels cover the exterior, and the overall design makes heavy use of the polished chrome trimmings throughout. Even the headlight visors are nicely chromed along the front of the fender skirts, to the rear bumper mounted spare tire, and wheel coverings. Round jet age ushering in taillights have small finned V toppers for backup lighting, and of course edged in chrome. Wide whites on all 4 corners that wrap classic chromed wire wheels and faux knock off hubs inside along with dual chrome tipped exhaust peeking out from under the back, and we are in cruiser nirvana.

Interior
More of the two tone Seasprite and Snowshoe for the door panels peppered with stainless and chrome trimmings and handles lead the way for us to enter this interior with its original looking and newly restored dash top and front instrument panel. The top is Seasprite and the front is white, and there is a lineup of round gauges, and radio as well as temp sliders to steering wheel right. Speaking of which is the original bakelite in white and has a chromed center half ring for the horn and center cap. Seasprite turquoise tuck and roll inserts are completely surrounded by smooth white bolsters on all the seats which are a split front bench and a full rear bench complete with fold down armrest. All this floats in a deep turquoise sea of clean carpeting. Above is a nice and tight headliner in white and it is completed with the chromed wide basket handle for the B pillar inside as well as outside. Gorgeous and original I feel like I just sat down in a Silk City train car diner.

Drivetrain
Under the hood is a restored 272ci V8. It has a nicely red painted block, and Ford badged valve covers in chrome for the dress up kit installed. On back is a 3-speed manual transmission and overall, it is a nicely appearing engine in a restored and repainted engine bay.

Undercarriage
All very clean with a light coating of rust proofing on the floor pans and rockers and body hangers. The frame is solid and not painted. Independent coil springs are on front, and leaf springs for the back suspension, and drum brakes are all around. Dual glass pack style exhaust makes its way rearward through this nicely preserved undercarriage.

Drive-Ability
A pleasant test cruise through town which turned heads, and attracted all kinds of attention. You'd think the locals would become accustomed to our flaunting of these old classics on main street, but each time it's like the first classic they've seen in forever! All was working very well with a smooth ride, good braking, and nice handling. All functions were working like I just drove it off the lot.

An overall very good condition, high end trimmed Crown Victoria from the blue oval and right out of 1955, the first year for this trim package. Nice 50's colors-Seasprite and Snowshoe paint scheme and interior, and the round gauges and instruments are a nice feature seldom used for radios and temp sliders on the inside. And the radio works!
