"The NEW 1956 Ford Fairlane Town Sedan...with new and exclusive new LIFEGUARD DESIGN!"
The 1956 Ford was not only built to be beautiful and perform well, but Ford was also heavily promoting their safety features that year. The "Double Grip Door Latches" to prevent doors opening in the event of a crash and the "Deep Dish Safety Design Steering Wheel" are examples of these Lifeguard Designs. The 1955-1956 Fords are now regarded as one of the most beautiful and collectible cars of the 1950s!
Here we have a beautiful Fairlane Town Sedan with very rare options that has been well loved by its past owners and was restored a few years back. With as many options as this car has, I would think this might have been a special demonstrator or display model. Beautiful condition inside and out. Looks like almost like a new one from just a short distance. This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events, local car shows, or just own/drive for fun! This car will be a treasure for your family to own for years to come and a great investment too!

The original 312 Y-Block V8 starts and runs well. The transmission shifts and operates well at all speeds. With the PS and PB, this would be an easy classic car for anyone to drive and handle. All working gauges and lights. Doors open and close nicely with a thud. Although this car did originally come equipped with A/C, it is not functional at this time. If you would like A/C added.
