292 V8, 3-Speed Manual, PB, A/C, Nice!

Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 22nd year in the classic and muscle car business. The decade of the 1950's was a very successful one for the Ford Motor Company. First, their envelope-bodied 1949 models set the world on fire, helping Ford outsell Chrysler and return to profitability by 1952. Then, with the wildly popular 1955-1957 models Ford closed in on Chevrolet and then outsold them in 1957 for the first time since 1935. As one of the cars that helped to save Ford, we're pleased to offer this clean 1956 Ford Customline 2-Door Sedan. This jewel looks fantastic in its correct Berkshire Green and Colonial White livery (VE2), with the correct Medium Green Vinyl and Medium Green Bodycloth (CA2) trim complimenting the paint perfectly. Additional features include a 292 ci Thunderbird V8, 3-speed manual transmission, power front disc brakes, Classic Auto Air A/C, aluminum radiator with shroud, and a working factory AM radio. Restored about 10 years ago, this creampuff drives beautifully and comes with receipts totaling over $25K. An interesting anecdote from the period has Tom McCahill of Popular Mechanix quoting Bill France, the president of NASCAR, as saying, "Ford...has the best steel in the industry", referring to the fact that Fords withstood the tortures of NASCAR better than other makes. This is a very nice example of an important car sporting good upholstery, carpet, dash, headliner, and paint, with the added bonus of excellent driving dynamics. Come see the team that can make your dream a reality. Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
