This 1954 Ford Victoria is a different build with a fantastic
hardtop profile, upgraded V8, four-on-the-floor, and a unique take
on a full custom cruiser exterior.
When you want a cool-looking custom, the Victoria is the right
place to start. Its pillarless hardtop design with wraparound rear
window is a premium feature that makes this far rarer than the
standard coupe. This personalized coupe has added touches like
shaved door handles, a louvered hood, smoothie wheels, and frenched
tail lights. Like any good 1950s coupe, this one has plenty of
hand-laid pinstriping. While the window trim and the bumpers give
you nice classic brightwork, our favorite piece might be the
grille, which kind of looks like it akin to the Thunderbird that
would debut in 1955. It's all set against a cool burgundy. The
paint sets an exciting tone for the car with the right amount of
age, and the rest of the details follow suit. It makes for the
weathered lowrider look that happened back when these were true
cruisers. So while you may update the paint or polish the bumpers,
this one seems to capture a cool/classic era.
The remote door openers are on a key fob, so this one can show off
its distinction even when you're a few feet away from the car. The
two-tone black and white are particularly distinctive on the tuck
and roll seats. And the rest of the interior is color-coordinated,
right down to the trunk. Like the exterior, this is not perfect.
It's just a relaxed look and an easy cruiser vibe. That's why there
are some thoughtful upgrades, like the flame-kissed custom steering
wheel that's mounted on a tilt steering column. The auxiliary
readouts are quite crisp and clear. And the column-mounted tach is
quite a handy piece to go with the floor shifter.
The thunderbird-style grille might not have been pure coincidence.
This one has been upgraded under the hood to a 292 cubic-inch
Y-block similar to what was available in the first-gen T-bird. And
the upgrades don't stop there. You also have a Holley four-barrel
carburetor with an electric choke and an MSD ignition. It makes for
a classic powerhouse that fires up eagerly and inhales deeper. So
it makes for a fun cruiser, especially with the control of the
four-speed manual transmission.
This premium Victoria hardtop has been upgraded to a true custom
cruiser style. So it makes for a unique street machine that has
earned its place on the boulevard. Call now!
