got a couple of different 57 pics and my 54 is on here but i haven't seen a 55 or 56 which is all the more reason for you to build one. i've got a latham supercharged y block in the 54, an algon injected lincoln 430 in the 57 and the other 57 i saw had a damned chevy in it but it was very cool in spite of that cause he drove the piss out of it and it looked good. I'd send ya some pix but you don't have any e-mail address listed in your bio and i dunno how to post em up here.

I searched the over 1000 pics I have saved of gassers, and not 1 56. So, I'll post this. Not the same year, but close enough to get an idea.

If you dont look the kustomlook of your 56 Ford, -its just done wrong. Loose the skirts and visor and try again...

When I saw this car at the Road Rockets show, I crapped at the plexi hood freshly welded to the fenders to make a tilt frontend. I quickly forgot how stupid that was when I noticed the latham blower & began to drool. WWS

One of my all time favs was the one that was on the cover of an old Hot-Rod mag. Sorry no pics, but it was blue and white with slot mags on it and a FE Ford in it.
On another note ,that motor ya got there is a real torque monster. I love em, run one in my A.

the 429 I have I built about 2 years ago and has only been run once.It's .30 over domed wiesco forged slugs ,Eagle rods,bottom end is balanced and girdled.Heads have had major porting done. manley s.s valves.big roller camshaft,roller rockers,and a victor jr intake.I dont know what it makes for horsepower but it turns on pretty good.I had it in a 64 ford fairlane with a toploader and 4:33 rear gears.That little car could gat away from you pretty quick if you werent carefull.

Default How about this one?

It's my 1956 (P Code 312) Mainline Business coupe. The 312 3-speed is long gone and I've stuffed a built (but streetable) 428 4-speed. Four wheel disc brakes from a Lincoln Versaille (sp), Ladder bars, roll bar, gauges, dash mounted tach, 63 Galaxie buckets, 1962 Falcon console, sheet aluminum door panels, no headliner, glove box or heater, thunderbolt carb bonnet w/ram air (like the t-bolts).

I've ordered a pair of ET-Gasser 10 spoke front wheels and have a pair of 15" Radir cheater slicks mounted on steel rims for the rear. I wanted it lettered as if it's been there for 40 years and my sign painter did an excellent job. Truly a period correct lettering job. It's a D/Gas clone of a ficticious car that had been rambling around in my head for 40 years. I had a 1956 Mainline business coupe in high school and always wanted a gasser with a 427 4-speed. Well, now I have one, but doubt I'll ever take it down the track, ...well maybe.

picture the front end up in the air even with the back of the car. I'm going to raise it about 5-6 inches using a c-block lift kit. However, I do have an Econoline front end waiting in the wings.

Let me know what you think about it, ...and I'm looking forward to driving it to some shows this year. Look for it behind a 1965 F-250 truck also lettered in Purk's Speed Shop trim. How many rod / drag car shows around Savannah, Georgia?

Drop the rag, ...let's shag.

If you have a 429 ready to go, put it in and have fun. Hell, that motor is going on 40 yrs. old, I think thats old enough. If you lighten up that '56 enough, you won't be much heavier than the '64 Fairlane. There are very few 55-56 Fords done up gasser style, and that's a great reason to build one. IMO

Wow! An almost 4 year old thread revived. I'll bite.

Tom Blackford's C/Gas '56 Ford.


And for a little variety, how 'bout Gene Heidorn's altered wheelbase '56 Ford.

I know that my uncle has more pictures but I'm not sure of how many were took of the car when it looked like this. I have seen a couple pictures of when it was a mild custom though.
He lives right across the street from me so I will have to talk to him and see if I can borrow a couple and get them scanned.
