1956 Ford Victoria
Beautiful mild custom restoration of a 1956 Ford Victoria 2 door Hardtop. In my opinions Fords finest body design of the era. Started out as a 98% rust free and straight western car. The only sheetmetal that is not original to the car is both the driver and passenger side outer rockers below the door which were expertly repaired with new replacements and a very small portion of the drivers footwell where new sheetmetal was butt welded in. The rest of the floors and body were rock solid. The body was refinished in the original 56 colors of Peacock Blue and Colonial white using all Dupont products. Overall very straight with nice door, hood, and trunk gaps. Paint is fully sanded and buffed for a mirror finish. Nice detail in the door jambs, under hood, and trunk. Custom Pearl white interior using 58 Thunderbird seats expertly executed by Bob Jasper. Custom console with air ride gauges, switches, and Lokar shifter. Powered by a Y block 292 with E code Thunderbird polished dual four barrel setup and valve covers. Carbs are Carter wcfb's rebuilt and setup by Pony Carburetors in New Woodstock, NY. Cooled by a Griffen aluminum radiator. Engine backed by a modern C-4 automatic transmission. Front suspension is equipped with Fatman Dropped spindles, Granada Disc brakes, sway bar, and power steering. Air ride technologies adjustable height suspension on all for corners. 9" ford rear end out back with parallel leafsprings. Rolls on 17x7 and 17x8 American Torq Thrust 2's. EVERY piece of chrome and stainless on this car was professionally redone by Maranatha plating in Puyallup, WA. 55-56 Mercury wagon tailights were added for the look Ford should have gave the car from the beginning, the rest of the exterior remains stock appearing. All glass is in great shape, and all weatherstripping and felts were replaced. This car was Featured in the May 2008 issue of Street Rodder magazine. Excellent driving and eye catching cruiser that gets attention every where it goes. This classic Ford definitely has "The Look."
