1956 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner
An iconic cool cruising convertible with extra V8 power and cold A/C. Oh yeah, this 1956 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner is ready for serious fun.
This one is a true 1950s drop-top cruiser. After all, only then were the stylists daring enough to create a full-length chrome trim line with a beautiful dipping design in the doors. This stunning standout is not only distinctive, but also it provides a distinct dividing line for the red and white. There's so much distinctive bright work, like the full-width grille, jet-inspired taillights, and rear bumper with integrated dual exhaust. Someone took the time to make sure all of this was complete and shining. But more than just the bright work, this one really gets the details right. The pristine white roof, fender skirts, factory wheel cover, and the glossy appearance that can only come from lacquer paint this one is truly something special.
Not only is the white top newer, but so is the white interior, too. So this one looks terrific with the roof up or down. Just like the exterior, the door panels and dash continue the red and white two-tone for a great uniform total appearance. So you'll be glad Ford gave you plenty of interior space, because everyone is going to want to go for a ride in this well-presented total package. No matter if it's the whole family or just you, this one is the perfect all-day cruiser thanks to some great features. Not only do you have a factory power folding top, but also there has been an investment in the right upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a.
When you open the hood, the bold red block and Thunderbird valve covers do a great job of attracting attention in the glossy black engine bay. This was born a V8 convertible, and it has been upgraded to the top-dog motor from '56. So you'll love telling people this has the 312 cubic-inch V8 that was shared with the best Thunderbirds. Of course, that new performance Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor sitting on top is going to get you even more power than a T-bird! It fires up easily thanks to all the right maintenance, including new components like the electronic ignition, fuel pump, and alternator. The V8 is mated to Ford's three-speed automatic transmission for good comfort, and the power steering helps keep this an effortless cruiser.
A cool Sunliner classic that stays cooler thanks to the A/C and a more powerful V8 to keep the wind in your hair. This is a great total vintage package, and it can all be your if you call today!
