For Sale: 1956 Ford Parklane in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The two-door wagon is one of the coolest American classics around. So when you can get it with V8 power, a comprehensive two-tone gleaming chrome, and a detailed restored vintage style, this 1956 Ford Parklane is the kind of time capsule that knows how to really turn heads.

This is a car that defines an era. A two-door sporty wagon with plenty of brightwork is exactly how you want to represent the inspiration of the 1950s. This Ranch Wagon's impressiveness starts with the paint. The two-tone red and white is the kind of attractive combo that makes you think of Coca-Cola. Even the little dip in the door line created by the full-length side trim plays into this iconic American style. This is an upgraded paint theme completed in 2013 as part of a larger restoration. And with only a little over 5k miles on this car since completion, the finish retains a quality shine. Plus, the wraparound chrome bumpers, classic wheel covers, and distinct trim all have the kind of shining style that makes this quite a memorable cruiser. In fact, this has all the best details to make it quite striking including whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, and taillights that remind us of the first Thunderbirds. What we also like about this one is its history. The two-door Ranch Wagon is already a rare sight on the classic car scene, and the trim tag tells us this is a more expensive Parklane version. So that makes this about three times rarer than the already seldom-seen standard Ranch Wagon!

The full red and white color theme continues inside. This is clean, stylish, and impressive, right down to the Ford family crest on the steering wheel. This is full of impressive details, like the rear seat trim, working dome light, and the tuck and roll style inserts in the upholstery. Even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes. And while the back seat is great for sharing with family and friends, it also folds down to give you a classic with maximum function.

Speaking of function, there's a nice V8 under the hood. Just like the rest of the car, the 292 cubic-inch motor has a very tidy style and a high degree of authenticity in its appearance. The Thunderbird valve covers are a nice detail that reminds you this shares its powerhouse with the legendary cruiser. The V8 fires up nicely as it inhales deeply through the Holley four-barrel carburetor. And it exhales with a dignified tune out of the dual exhaust. This wagon was made to be enjoyed and shown off, and so the automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes deliver a proper cruiser feeling.

A two-door wagon is always an attention-getter, but when you have something this rare and well-presented, you can see this Parklane was made to attract a crowd. Call today!!!
