The 1956 Ford Crown Victoria was one of Ford's very special models. With the sweeping chrome over the roof it is very distinctive. The car was restored a little over 20 years ago and the chrome and brightwork is very good. The Black/White and Gold interior is also in very good condition. Behind the 312 V8 is a 3 speed on the tree manual transmission with the overdrive option. Continental kit, along with fender skirts, give this Crown Vic the true 50's look. Wide whitewall radials with factory full wheel covers are the finishing touches on this classic. With a little over 9,000 Crown Victoria's built, this is a rare find. 12 Volt ignition was standard for 1956 and it was the first year Ford offered seat belts as an option. 1956 was a great year for Ford and 60+ years later it is still one of their best years for styling.
