1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria Additional Info:

This very desirable color combination presents this classic automobile as one of the greatest.

This beautiful car sports an older restoration that includes many extras. Featuring classic styling with the "panoramic" windshield and a powerhouse under the hood, this 2-door, 5-passenger beauty is perfect for any collector.

With recent paint to cover a botched paint color in the past, this car sports a beautiful hardtop black and white exterior with a custom spare tire cover with some of the most iconic "Misty Memories" from the past. Some pitting is noted around the window trim and near the lens bezels and front and back. Light lenses appear to be original with some minor cracking and cloudiness. Most chrome trim is in good shape from the unique front grille to the dual chrome exhaust pipes hiding under the rear. A match set of SUNTEK Touring 235/75R15 tires with classic 1" whitewall stripes sets this beauty off and gives it a very comfortable ride.

The powerful 272cid V8 "y-Block" engine gives you 225 horses to play with. Including the factory AC condenser and power steering, this car was truly ahead of its time. The "Ford-o-matic" three-speed cast-iron case PMB-B transmission was the first widely-used drivetrain used by Ford featuring a torque converter and a planetary gearset. A small oil leak was noted under the engine on inspection.

The top-of-the-line Fairlane trim package offered many options including "MagicAire" Ford factory air conditioning, and a stereo. The seats have been recovered in a beautiful matching white and beige marbled vinyl with black trim and piping. Very small areas of chrome pitting on gauges and instrumentation is noted. A small damaged area was noted on the headliner. The newer black carpet allows for an awesome presentation and gives it the luxurious feel it deserves. One notable missing feature was something that Ford introduce as an optional feature this model year - seatbelts! The speedometer appears to be inoperative and minor clouding is noted around the edge of some glass.
