This ’56 Ford Crestline looks as if it could be a descendent of the old moonshine runners that ran amok, transporting the devil’s brew on the dusty old back roads of the deep South. With the exception of the wheels, this is pretty much what the old moonshine runners were, plain sedans without chrome or flashy paint, made to blend in. Appearance wise they were unassuming, but under the hood, a big engine with multiple carburetors and a manual transmission.
By today’s standards, you’re definitely not going to blend in with this ’56 Ford. She’s a real looker, and you won’t go unnoticed in traffic. The gentleman selling this car has gone through it to make sure it’s up to standards.
He performed the mild restoration, adding paint, wheels and tires, and taking care of any mechanical issues that were needed. Because it was a southern car, and it has remained in the South most of its life, it is virtually rust free, which is another great selling point of this car, how many of these are left in this condition? The American Racing Torque Thrust rims really give this car an aggressive look.
The best part of this car is opening the hood and seeing the three deuces with chrome air cleaners staring back at you. That’s right, she’s got an old 312 Y block engine between the rails, with three Stromberg carburetor’s on top. Not to mention the Hurst shifted 3 speed manual transmission, no boring automatics here. Come on guys, get on eBay and check it out, this has to be one of the best deals we’ve seen in a while, for around 13 grand you get a rust-free hot rod Ford, that all you have to do is get in and drive.
