It's a '55 hood and hood ornament. '56 Fords had a different ornament that was recessed into the hood (actual hole in the hood for it).

Thanks for posting these shots! My nephew built that wagon for a customer. A LOT of work to get that car to look so good.

Is this an AUSTRALIAN FORD being shown?

Quote:
Australian production

The 1955 Ford was also produced by Ford Australia which offered it as a V8 Customline 4-door sedan and as a V8 Mainline 2-door coupe utility.[11] p 131–132 The latter body style was developed in Australia utilising an imported convertible chassis strengthened for load carrying.[11] 136 A limited number of Customline wagons was also built.[11] 137


The 1955 model was the first Australian Ford to receive the new overhead-valve "Y-block" V8 engine, and went on sale at the end of July 1955.[12] Australian Customlines and Mainlines received the 1956 US Ford facelift and then further makeovers in 1957 and 1958 with the final series utilizing the grille from 1955 Meteor of Canada.[11] p 131–132 The 1957s, introduced in September 1957, were also available with the Fordomatic automatic transmission, and local parts content had been increased to 80 percent.[13]


By 1958 the Customline was being marketed as the Ford V8 Fordomatic when supplied with automatic transmission.[14][15] 1958 was also when the larger, 292 cu in (4.79 L) V8 engine was introduced.[16] Australian production ended the following year with the introduction of the 1959 US Ford which was locally produced in Custom 300, Fairlane 500 and Ranch Wagon models.[17]

Nothing like a high dollar paint scheme to make one look good-

At the last National Thunderbird Convention in Jersey , there was some joking about having to offer a new T Bird Station Wagon class for judging since these have been built.


Its the same good old story , when does the competition begin : As soon as the second one is built
