This 1956 Ford Sunliner is a fantastically restored convertible that has a great classic color combo inside and out (and the undercarriage, too!) But as you dig into the details, you also spot amazing upgrades that make this a fresh and award-worthy custom build.
This one is a true 1950s drop-top cruiser. After all, only then were the stylists daring enough to create a full-length trim line with a beautiful dipping design in the doors. This stunning standout is not only distinctive, but also it provides a true dividing line for the two-tone. There's so much more distinctive brightwork, like the full-width grille, jet-inspired taillights, and rear bumper with integrated dual exhaust. So someone took the time to make sure all of this was complete and shining. But more than just the classic style, you know this is a custom machine the moment it comes into view. After all, the white and orange color combo has a classic look, but when the sunlight hits it, the metallic element in the orange makes it like a modern application. And those 17-inch Boyd Coddington alloys are a shining hint at some extra performance in this convertible (more on that in a moment.)
This features power windows and a power convertible top, so it's easy to open up to the world at a moment's notice – all without ever leaving the driver's seat. And when the interior looks this good, you know you're going to want to be sharing it as often as possible. After all, the two-tone orange and white of the interior so nicely coordinates with the exterior. So this is a very thoughtful total package. There are even provisions for air conditioning. The custom seats have extra bolstering for individual comfort, and the textured inserts are repeated on the side panels. This is an upgraded classic that was made for cruising, that's why you have the wood and chrome steering wheel mounted on the polished column. Beyond that, the classic machine-turned dash looks sporty, and that's heightened by a complete set of newer crisp gauges.
Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood, because the smooth color-matched walls funnel all your attention to the shining motor. We dare you to find another component that can be polished on this award-worthy motor. And as you look beyond the shine, you're going to see the substance of a 5.0-liter V8 that has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. Plus, it even has the right supporting components like a serpentine belt system and HD aluminum radiator. So if this sounds like a great cruising package, then you'll love the four-speed automatic transmission. It's great for powerful kick-downs as well as easily slip into overdrive comfort. Plus, power steering and front disc brakes really makes this one easy to show off everywhere. And when you do, the tidy underside of this low-mileage build will have you putting a mirror under it at car shows.
You can see the quality of a frame-off restoration gives you in this unique, powerful, and upgraded Sunliner. It's a great total package that you'll want to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
