This classic 1956 Ford Customline is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 55/56 Customline of vehicles was Ford’s answer to the overwhelming success of the Tri/Five Chevrolet that took the market by storm. With similar body lines many people felt ford should have went a different direction. While sales were decent they were nowhere near what Chevy was pumping out. This example is classic Hotrod styling giving the car a real classic feel. The exterior has been shaved and smoothed with all doors and even the trunk operated by poppers. The green exterior is another classic Hotrod styling que with the 2-tone really separating this beauty from the crowd. The pinstriping is clean and really puts an exclamation point on the Hotrod styling. Under the hood is a 292 with a triple deuce set up giving this beauty a little more pep in its step while giving under the hood a much different look. Mated up to a C4 transmission driving this beauty is as easy as dropping it in gear and mashing the pedal. The interior is classic 50’s again with the white being unbeleivably clean. It really does tie everything together and gives the sense that this was a well thought out build. If you have been wanting to get a Hotrod that is very true to the era this one would make an excellent choice. Optireaons on this 1956 Ford Customline include, AC, AM/FM/CD, Hub Caps, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, and Wide White Wall Radial Tires.

Ford Panel Truck for sale right now in our Arizona showroom. These trucks are known by those who grew up with them as the backbone of the post-war American economy and now a lot of them are living on as hot rods. Our Panel Truck has been with the same owner for the last 30 years and has a restoration story of its own behind it. It was found by the owner in the Phoenix, Arizona area and was married to a 1975 Dodge Aspen; the 318 CID V8 from the Dodge was resealed along with the 3-speed automatic transmission. The torsion bar suspension from the Dodge fits perfectly under the chassis on 1953-56 Panel Trucks so this otherwise bloated truck rides much more like a car now too! This Panel looks mean in its jet-black paintjob and the business look continues inside with black and gray vinyl seats and a black plastic center console with cupholders. This truck comes with all-important Vintage Air! The gauges are surrounded by tasteful chrome and really look the part in this retro-modern build while the steering wheel from a Ford commercial vehicle adds a thoughtful touch. The windows on this truck have been tinted and it also has all-new weather-stripping. Other options on this 1956 Ford Panel Truck for sale include Power Steering, Power Brakes, a Tilt Wheel, Power Windows, Power Seats, Vinyl Interior, Radial Tires and Air Conditioning.

Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this beautifully restored 1956 Ford Thunderbird. The 1956 Ford Thunderbird is one of those designs that never goes out of style, and remains an instantly-identifiable icon of the 50s. Beautifully styled, comfortable, and with enough performance to keep almost any gearhead happy, they are perhaps the best combination of styling and performance from the 1950s. It can easily be said that the 1st generation of Thunderbird was their finest. Between 1955 and 1957 the Thunderbird was a small 2 seat roadster which was comparable to the Chevrolet Corvette. These cars could be had with a 292 CI V8, or an optional 312 CID V8. This T-bird has the larger 312 as well as a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, along with new wiring, stainless exhaust, and an electric radiator fan. The vivid red paint is stunning along with the red and white interior. This Thunderbird has power brakes, power steering, and a Town and Country AM radio. Stylings include round portholes in the removable hardtop, wire wheels with spinners, Firestone whitewalls, Continental kit, and fender skirts. This 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sale is located in our Dallas-Fort Worth Showroom and can be seen in greater detail, including an HD video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

The Tbird story started in 1953 on paper and Ford showed the first prototype in early 1954. Even though it was a rapid development Ford did a fantastic job and today the early Thunderbirds are on top of the list of almost every car enthusiast in the world. This particular 1956 Ford Thunderbird is a very nice driver. Lady owned for the past 10 years and she took good care of her “Baby Bird” Olivia. For many people the cars from the 50’s are considered a piece of art. It is a pleasure to just walk around this turquoise Thunderbird and see the many details and the great craftmanship. After the walk around, you want to get in the drivers seat and take off in it. This Tbird is powered by its 292ci V8 engine and shifted by an automatic transmission. You will have a good time driving this one around town. A major plus is that the car comes with both tops, the port hole hardtop and a soft top. To put an additional soft top in an early Thunderbird would cost you between $4000 and $5000. Folks, this one has it already folded up behind the bench seat. The continental kit and the white wall tires are a perfect fit to the Bird. This is a great buy if you are not looking to spent a fortune on one.

1956 Ford F100

1956 Ford F100


Engine: 351 CID Windsor V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 7,285 ( undocumented )

Now for sale in the beautiful Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is this awesome 1956 Ford F-100. The truck is powered by a strong and very fresh 351 CID V8 Windsor engine and a 3-speed FMX transmission. Both the engine and transmission have been rebuilt within 5,000 miles and the truck was finished in a gorgeous R-M Diamond base coat and clear coat in Guards Red. It features an 8.8 Mustang rear end with a really nice and well balanced 3.73 gear ratio. The actual miles are unknown, but the odometer shows only 7,285 and it was rebuilt less than 5,000 miles ago. Inside the cabin you will find a finely put together leather interior and features like ice cold A/C, AM/FM radio, CD player, tilt wheel and seat belts. Outside you will like the alloy rally wheels with radial tires. Power brakes and power steering have been added also to make this truck even easier to drive. The Ford F-series has been massively successful for the company. Since 1981 it has been the best-selling vehicle in America and the best-selling truck since 1977! We have been on the thirteenth generation of F-Series since 2015 but this is the second generation of the trucks. The second-generation F-Series made its debut in 1953. It featured increased dimensions, improved engines and an updated chassis. This was also the start of a new naming scheme that paved the way for the trucks. The F-1 was changed to F-100, F-2 and F-3 was combined to become F-250 and the F4- was named the F350. The F-100 was significantly changed in the 1957 and lost some of it’s beautiful lines and curves present on this one. This was the final year of the second generation and therefore it is a very desirable year. Some of these trucks fetch close to $100,000 so it isn’t hard to see that this one is a fantastic deal.

When starting with a custom-rod, where else do you begin then heart of the vehicle. This 1932 is powered around by a straight out the GM crate- Mr.Goodwrench 350-V8 motor, with aluminum heads, edelbrock carb 650 CFM, and a MSD Ignition. Which creates plenty of ponies to the back wheels. Speaking of wheels, this ride is rolling on a fabulous combo set of US-Mags wheels and Mickey Thompson tires. These all connect to Rust’No’More chassis and a fiberglass body sitting on top. Other additional upgrades to this vehicle include: Aluminum rod 3 core speedway, Pete & Jake frontend, SoCal gas tank, Disc brakes, and Muffler headers.
