Re: 1955 Ford Sign In

There were probably choices for the cubic inch displacment for that car. You probably can't tell by just looking at it and back then (if I'm correct) the vin # won't help you. There should be a marking on the engine and I hope someone will jump in here as I really don't know where you should look.

Unless you know the total history it may NOT be the engine that came new with the car. I don't have books that go back quite that far but could hook you up with someone who restores cars and could say in a second.

If all fails go to Hemmings Motor in Bennington, VT. Good luck, T

1955 Ford customline standard was 223 i/l 6. Most likely[reply] had a 272 V8 because of the o'drive, but the 272 was still an option. This car got 26 high way per gal of gas on reg with the 272. They rode and handled great, eat your heart new cars, cost $1800.00 to $1900.
