For Sale in our Chicago showroom is a 1956 Ford Mainline. This 2-Door Post is a nice, clean and straight original Ford that originally came from California and has had some modern aesthetics added to create a true head-turner. This tidy little Ford began its life as an entry-level 2-door with the added comfort of the Ford-O-Matic 2-speed automatic transmission and 292 Cubic Inch V8 Engine. At a cost of just under $1,800 new this Ford has been updated with an Edelbrock 4bbl Carburetor, chrome alternator and Reds exhaust headers. New parts include a fuel pump, starter, transmission mounts, spring shackles, fuel tank sending unit, rebuilt speedometer with Autometer oil pressure and temperature gauges.
Having a V8 in a new Ford in the mid-50â??s was something to be proud of so Ford generously displayed the V8 logo along the side of each front fender to let you know that this car means business! Just picture yourself gripping that huge black steering wheel and getting this classic on the open road. Special attention to detail from on this â??56 include the red coves, Torque Thrust Wheels and Nitto Extreme ZR Tires. There is some additional celebrity clout with this car as it was featured in the Spike TV special â??Brett Meisnerâ??s 24 hours in hell with Jim Morrison.â?
Options on this â??50s classic include Ford-O-Matic Automatic Transmission, 292 Cubic Inch Y-Block V8 Engine, color-coded front and rear seat belts, Original AM Radio with Panasonic CD Stereo under dash, rear deck speakers and vertical-tufted vinyl bench seat.
