1956 Ford Victoria
1956 Ford Victoria - Documented showcar from new. Out of a long hibernation, and from the estate of the late Dana Pope comes this well known, documented, custom Victoria.It was purchased new in Rhode Island by Frank Balzone. He and his brother created "Star Dust", which they campaigned heavily all over the east coast. Very well written up in numerous custom and hotrod magazines from the 50's and 60's.Frank's brother was a very talented craftsman and did most of the customizing himself. Another relative out of the Bronx fashioned the vinly roof treatment and interior. The pictures will better tell the story of the modifications on this car. Google Frank Balzano Custom Ford and it should take you to a Hamb site, and a few other articles about "Star Dust" The car runs and drives very well, and is ready for someone else to take over enjoying and preserving this significant 50's show car. I'm located 1 hr north of Boston. Please call with any questions or stories you may have about this car.
