Description for Ford Other 1956

It's great to see a 1956 Ford Mainline that has a ton of originality â€" right down to its two-tone style. So you know something this distinct is an instant crowd pleaser. The mid-50s Fords were great cars. They had plenty of Thunderbird-style flair with headlight overhand and afterburner-style taillights. Plus, even these Mainline models had terrific bright work with wraparound bumpers, a wide grille, sleek side trim, and an integrated hood ornament. The Mainline name... is a great reminder of what people really bought and drove in the '50s, and this has a terrific time capsule-like appearance â€" right down to the factory-correct Springmist Green and Colonial White two-tone. So driving this one really does feel like a rolling time machine. The authentic feeling continues on the inside. This one retains the best of originality while still being a great showpiece. For example, no one expects a front bench seat to last 60+ years and still look presentable. So you can tell there was a solid investment keeping this one looking fresh while saying correct. The same goes for the dash, door panels, and even the gauges â€" giving you a total package you'll be proud to show off. And if you want to get to the car show before dawn, the working heat/defrost is a must. In a vehicle so unique already, it's really cool to see a period-correct inline-six under the hood. After all, the bold red block and intake stand out nicely against the painted firewall, glossy black air topper, and matching valve cover. So expect to get plenty of people marveling at this very correct total package. You're going to want to drive this Ford, and so the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this motor while also creating that ideal classic feeling. There has been great care in preserving/restoring this classic, and you can really see it in the details like the trunk and undercarriage photos. So if you're looking for an affordable and complete time capsule, don't let this one slip away. Call now!
