For 1955 received a new body and in the same year, it gained the 292 cu in (4.8 L) Y-block from the Thunderbird, producing 188 hp (140 kW) with the standard transmission or 198 with the Merc-O-Matic. It used independent ball-joint front suspension. Brake size was increased. It was available in two lower-priced trim packages called the Custom and with Medalist as the most basic model.
We are proud to offer this spectacular Custom 9 passenger wagon we just acquired from a large collector. Very rare car to have survived and especially in this condition. Finished in it's correct colors of Carmen Red and Alaska White, with matching cloth and vinyl interior. Has the 292 V8 with the Merc-O-Matic transmission. Other options include Radio, heater, third seat and whitewall tires. The wagon runs and drives well with plenty of power! Great for shows or taking the grandkids out for ice cream! Many more photos coming!
