1955 Ford Crown Victoria

In 1955 Ford made a dramatic change in body styling and the results were a sleek, sweeping, futuristic look that has stood the test of time. With an aggressive front end the flowed into smooth body panels with a distinctive “check mark” stainless trim leading your eyes to the poignant early jet airplane inspired tail lights you were hooked at first glance. Then add the “Crown” of polished stainless across the roof and B Pillars and, voila, you have the first Crown Victoria. A mark that lasted well into the late 20th Century and epitomized Ford's top of the line car. This fine Southwest example is finished in a great color combination and has some features and upgrades that make it a pleasure to own and drive. 1955 was the second largest production number for Ford Motor only surpassed by the 1923 Model T.
