Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to be able to offer this amazing 1956 Ford Fairlane. This car is powered by a powerful V8 engine mated to a smooth shifting automatic transmission. It is believed to be the original engine and transmission and never even rebuilt! It is finished in a beautiful black exterior and dark green cloth interior to match. 1956 was a fantastic year. Not just for cars but also for music. Songs like “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Don’t Be Cruel” by Elvis Presley first made their appearance on the scene. If you had a 1956 Fairlane back then you may remember going to see Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the first time in theaters. For the 1955 model year the Fairlane name replaced the Crestline as Ford's premier full-sized offering. Six different body styles were offered, including the Crown Victoria Skyliner with a tinted, transparent plastic roof, the regular Crown Victoria coupe with lots of stainless steel trim, a convertible Sunliner, the Victoria hardtop coupe, and traditional sedans. All featured the trademark stainless-steel "Fairlane stripe" on the side. Power options were a 223 cu in (3.7 L) straight-6 engine and a 272 cu in (4.5 L) V8. The 292 cu in (4.8 L) Y-block was offered as an option and was called the Thunderbird V-8. Few changes were made for 1956; a four-door Victoria hardtop and two new, more powerful V8 options, of 292 cu in (4.8 L) and 312 cu in (5.1 L), the latter available up to 225 bhp (168 kW; 228 PS), were introduced. The Lifeguard safety package was introduced. The two-door Victoria hardtop featured a new and slimmer roofline. This is an excellent example of a fantastic vehicle from the American automotive past. Don’t miss your chance to take this one home at a great price. Call the Houston showroom at (832) 243-6220 for more information on this vehicle.
