Description

Lot #56.2 - Colonial White with black and white interior color combo and equipped with a black softtop. It has a 312cid engine backed by an automatic transmission. Contains a nicely detailed engine compartment. Factory 4-barrel carburetor, original hubcaps and Continental kit. One significant change Ford made to this 1956 model was the addition of an outside location for the spare tire which allowed for extra trunk space. The tire mount moves out of the way by use of a hinged bracket. Contains cowl side vents along with glass wind deflectors which improves passenger ventilation and greater driving comfort. Advanced features include the high torque Thunderbird V8 Y block engine for 1956. Double Twin-Jet carburetor with integrated automatic choke and a 12-volt ignition system. This car is a nice, quality driver with beautiful chrome, rust-free body, attractive black canvas top, clear glass and fully functional accessories.
