    1955 Crown Vic Build

     



    Just thought I would start a build thread for this 1955 Crown Vic. It's not my car I am just doing the body and paint. The owner has a mechanical shop so he is doing all of that work. When he got the car other then the surface rust it did'nt look to bad. The right side was still the original paint but the left side had been painted,we could tell it was hit because the left quarter had been change with a new Ford quarter and a used door. Being in Canada these cars are getting hard to find and to buy a restored one and do what he wanted would just be way to much.image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg

    It'll be interesting to see how it drives with the anti-Ackermann geometry.....

    It was a '55 four-door Victoria that was the reason I married Rosie.
    It was her father's, and She and some of her friends were sitting in it downtown one evening.
    It wasn't the girl that interested me initially; it was the car I was doing the heavy breathing over!

    53 years later the car has long gone but She's still here...

    I about crapped myself at first, I thought you had it painted already! Looks like a great starting point.
