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.

With the Thunderbird considered a success, a few changes were made to the car for 1956.

You'll be happy to hear that this low (actual) mileage classic Thunderbird has been held by the same family for nearly three decades and was stored for most of that time. The interior and body was repainted in 2016, but these are still the original panels, engine, and interior components.

With its classic look, colors, lines, white-wall tires, and low body, this Thunderbird is a great find and will a its next owner very proud to have and to hold onto.

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.

Gateway Classic Cars is excited to welcome this stunning 1956 Ford Thunderbird to its showroom located in West Deptford, NJ! This is perhaps the quintessential ride of the 50s with a story to match! Ford had introduced the T-Bird in 1955 to counter Chevy’s Corvette and even marked it at a similar base price. Sure enough, Thunderbirds outsold Corvettes in the first year at 16,155 to Chevy’s mere 700. The famed car’s story is just as fascinating as the story of this particular vehicle in that this T-Bird has been in the hands of the same family for 60 years! Wearing a gorgeous coat of white paint applied 8 years ago, this Thunderbird experienced a thorough 17-year restoration with consideration going into all aspects of work. Great care was taken to maintain original components of the car including headlight bezels, the manual rag top and even the dash! Fuel lines, rubber goods and the gas tank were replaced to ensure a reliable ride! Powered by the rebuilt numbers matching 312 CID V8 engine and transmission, this Ford drives as smooth as the day it left the showroom and attracts looks wherever it roams! You have to see this car in person to truly appreciate the craftsmanship of Ford Motor Company and the tireless hard work of the restoration professionals that breathed new life in this family vehicle. Give us a call today to learn more about this American classic!

1956 Ford F100


Engine: 351 CID Windsor V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 7285 ( undocumented )

Now for sale in 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.

With only a few knobs and switches on the inside, the bright chrome gauge cluster captures your eyes showing speedometer, oil pressure, volts, water temp, and fuel. Powering this classic F100 is a Ford 289 “Y” block mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. Adding to the vintage package is the fact that it is “three on the tree.” It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to a pure throwback classic. If it’s too tame for you, let your imagination run wild. The best thing about this 1953 Ford F100 is the fact you know exactly what you’re dealing with.
