Six Appeal

Lately I’ve been working on a new edition of our Standard Catalog of Ford that will be released at the end of 2007.  One thing we’re adding to this book are new production figures for 1955-1968 cars that came from a secret source.  These figures include production totals for some six-cylinder Fords that we believe have never been published before. And we think they are going to surprise some folks.  For example, the number of six-cylinder Fairlane Crown Victorias built in 1955 was 50 cars. Six-cylinder-powered Sunliner convertibles were even rarer that year, as they made just 35 of those.  In 1956, the rarest Ford was the Country Squire station wagon with the six.  Ford built 93 of them.  A rare 1957 model (with 260 made) was the Fairlane Six two-door Victoria.  In 1958, production of that model dropped to 215.  In 1959, the rarest Ford was the Fairlane 500 four-door Victoria, with a run of just 414 units.  To get all the low numbers, you’ll have to wait until the book comes out.  But you’ll be able to get information about it at www.krausebooks.com long before that.
