Frank Sinatra’s 1955 Ford Thunderbird

with 5 comments

This was one of the special cars at The Villages Cruise In this past weekend.  Hope you enjoy the photos.

This car was owned by Capitol Records Company and bought specifically for Frank Sinatra on September 29, 1955 (I believe it is a 1955 model year Thunderbird). Shipped to the Fountainebleau Hotel ( Fountain Blue Hilton Resort Miami ), Miami Beach, FL October 3, 1955.

Used as a courtesy car for recording artist and movie stars, etc. it was sold in 1963 to Cecil Ford, of Miami Beach, FL

1956 Ford Fairlane – Victoria

with 4 comments

The markings on this car were “Fairlane” on the front/hood and just “Victoria” on the side of the vehicle.  The car had Ohio plates… but I’m wondering if maybe this was a Canadian Ford.  I thought it should say “Crown Victoria”, but it didn’t.  Anyway, it was a beauty.
