1956 Ford Victoria

Here is a photo of my ‘56 Ford Victoria. It is powered by a 292 cu. in. Ford Y-block engine and a Fordomatic automatic transmission. This car was a (shock) Christmas gift from my favorite (only) daughter and son-in-law. This great-looking car is certainly not a show car but a very presentable and fun driver. The Victoria is a regular at the start-finish line for the annual Mt. Taylor winter Quad event. This photo was taken recently in front of the Grants, New Mexico Uranium Mining Museum head frame, January 2018. James Duck

    I have a 1955 Victoria that I restored starting in 2000 and it took about five years to complete. It has a 292 with a 2speed tranie . I take it to a number of shows here in Colorado and people love to look at it and tell about the one they had.

    Drivers like this don't have to be perfect. They're just a pleasure to look at.

    Beautiful car! My uncle had a two tone eggshell blue/ white 56. When I got my license my second car was a black and white 56 Crown Vic. Long gone, but never forgotten!
