That's the Alloway built '56 that was featured in Popular Hot Rodding a while ago. Totally gorgeous bad boy!

Here's more info:

...and a little description:
George Lange--St. Louis, MO '56 Ford Crown Victoria
Surely you remember this one from the cover of the March '02 issue of PHR. Famed street rod builder, Bobby Alloway, built this bad boy down the Tennessee way for George Lange, who wanted a car that "rode and drove just like Ford still made the '56 model today." We've been in this car and they reached their goal, as it's a true street machine that surpasses the goals of the latest Marauder.

Powered by a Ford big-block crate, this subtle sleeper has a ton of Nitto tire attached to that rear axle, thanks to carefully selected tires and serious minitubbing. Those of you who saw the construction story in the April '02 issue of PHR know what we're talking about here, as Alloway's metalwork is unprecedented on this project. A few of the judges thought this car might be a little too sleepy, but once they got a closer look at the fit and finish (including amazing polish work on the moldings), and considered Alloway's penchant for brutally powerful vehicles, it was certainly a finalist.

This car was at the Street Rod Nats this last year in Louisville, Ky in the FORD display. It has to be seen in person to be believed. Talk about straight!

Very Sharp! A strong case for nosing and decking and emblem removal. 56 Fords had that fonky hood ornament. What a difference! Remember that the "hot" tailight gig for those cars was 55 Merc station wagon tailights. Sweet!!!

Seeing the hood, my first thought was that it was a 55. Sweet car, I never cared much for the basket handle but there is not one thing wrong with this car.

56 hardtops were the first car that I lusted after. I looked at one in a car lot that I wanted to buy but couldn't afford. To this day when I drive by where that lot was, I think about that car. It was black and white with a 312 engine and a three speed overdrive.

I'm old and cantataurous ,but I don't like the crown vic's as much as the regular hardtops never have,or the 2/dr sedans. But that is a good looking ride.
