GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1956 Ford Parklane for
your consideration. This Parklane comes in a Purple paint job
complemented by a Red and White interior. Powering this Parklane is
the Thunderbird Y block, 292ci V8 motor paired to a smooth-shifting
automatic transmission. This Ford features power steering, a Chevy
steering column, and wheel, Holley, a new battery, and much more.

our showroom or have us assist with shipping it to you anywhere in
the United States! Don't hesitate to give us a call with any
questions or for more information.
The Parklane is a two-door station wagon, sharing its bodyshell
with the Ford Ranch Wagon. To distinguish the model line, the
Parklane received the stainless-steel bodyside stripe of the
Fairlane (otherwise reserved for three-row Country Sedans). While
the roofline was shared directly with the Ranch Wagon, the B-pillar
was trimmed in stainless steel (a design element loosely adapted
from the Fairlane Crown Victoria). The model line introduced
several advanced features for the time, including a fully-carpeted
interior (including the cargo area) and a privacy cover for the
cargo area. As a $60 option, the Park Lane was offered with 4-way
front power seats. In line with other Ford station wagons, the rear
seat of the Park Lane folded completely flat, forming a single flat
load surface. The Parklane shared its powertrain offerings with
other Ford station wagons. A 223 cubic-inch inline-6 was the
standard engine, with a 292 cubic-inch V8 (shared with the
Thunderbird) being offered as an option. The 11-inch drum brakes
introduced for 1955 were fitted to the model line.
