1956 Ford Ranch Wagon Description

Somewhere between the ultimate sleeper and the ultimate useful classic lies this 1956 Ford Ranch Wagon. With a beautiful vintage exterior, upgraded A/C interior, and serious Ford 351 power under the hood, it truly offers you the best of all worlds.This is a car that defines an era. A two-door sporty wagon with plenty of brightwork gleaming from every angle is exactly how you want to represent the inspiration of the 1950s. This Ranch Wagon's impressiveness starts with the paint. The two-tone has a great shine because this is a modern interpretation of a period-correct scheme. So that exceptionally bold red is actually Viper Red, which certainly attracts a crowd. Workmanship is quite good with the original bright trim providing the color separation line along the entire side of the car. The full length silver streak needs truly straight sheetmetal for it to make this kind of stellar impression over the whole body. Thick mirror-like chrome bumpers, jet-inspired taillights, and two-piece wheels this is a great total package. We bet you're already imagining spending the day at the car show with the two-piece tailgate open for a picnic-style afternoon. But, this one is far more than just a Sunday driver, and you can tell from the moment you open the door and see the nicely blended classic style with worthwhile upgrades. It starts with the great seats that continue the exterior two-tone. But as much as these look period-correct, you also get a great addition of a removable center console with cup holders. This red and white theme is continued on the door panels, carpeting, and dash for a true uniform appearance that always impresses. A wagon is meant to carry family and friends, so you can keep them all happy and comfortable with features like the AM/FM stereo with satellite radio and auxiliary (iPod) capabilities. Plus, the ice-cold R134a air conditioning is always a welcomed upgrade in a classic. But this Ford was also upgraded to be a driver's car. That's why you get a grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel for your left hand, and a Lokar shifter to rest your right one. The full gauge package retains the original large speedometer, but now the auxiliary readouts are more accurate AutoMeter Pro-Comp units a clear indication that you want to be in tune with what's going on under the hood.You might have noticed that this Ranch Wagon has the cool Thunderbird V8 logos on the venders. Well, that's a bit of a fib, because the 292 cubic-inch motor has been upgraded to a performance-built 351 Windsor. You'll love the way it shines in the engine bay with the bold air filter, master cylinder, brackets, and Ford Racing valve covers. And beyond the shine is the substance of Ford's sturdy V8 built with go-fast goodies like a mild cam, Edelbrock Performer intake, and Holley four-barrel carburetor. So yes, this one sounds better than just about any other Ranch Wagon out there, but the upgraded MagnaFlow dual exhaust still exits through the cool bumper cutouts. This one feels exceptionally good on the road thanks to a C6 three-speed automatic transmission that was rebuilt a few years ago, and there's also the upgrade to a Hydratech Brake System with discs up front. You might have also noticed the trailer hitch. So with the power steering and modern BF Goodrich tires masquerading as classic whitewalls, you should have no problem being the most impressive towing vehicle wherever you want to go. This Ranch Wagon offers just about the best of everything. It's a classic wagon with daily driver sensibilities and a wow factor wherever it arrives. So, you might want to stop dreaming about being the coolest one in the corporate parking lot long enough to grab this custom creation before it's gone. Call today!!
