Six with an automatic. Nice Ford for no money.

I really like this Ford - I even like the fact that it has the six cylinder engine, which seems rather uncommon these days.  But, I wonder how much of a slug it might be when the six is combined with the automatic transmission.  It might even be a slug with a straight shift.  I had a '59 Ford with the 6 and a 3-speed manual.  It certainly qualified as a slug.

 

Regardless, it looks like a nice car, even with the furry seats.

I see lots of rust stain streaks from it sitting outside and hopefully not Hurricane flooding.   I would look really close at everything.  Very salty Climate for something like this to sit out.  Cars disappear over time outside in this area.  Paint job is shot.  I think it's priced right where I would expect it.

Personally I love the Ford OHV six.  I Have had a few but they are very unusual in the upper models. 

FYI 1955 is the only year Ford used an "I6" emblem on the fender. 

 

Power house? Eh. . . They have a lot more power (and torque) than my 1920s cars. . . . 

They are torquey and pull better than a Y-block. Typically a six with overdrive has a rather low rear axle ratio and their actually get away is equal to a V-8 

 

Maybe a Y-block is a little faster??? But you will also hear every valve clack as you gain each mile in speed.  FE motor? (post 58) good runner, but only 8-10 MPG. 

 

A 223 Ford six is a very under appreciated engine.

I once pulled a 292 auto from a 1960 Starliner and swapped in a 223 3 speed, great driving car.

From what I gather, Ford's six had 120 hp, but that was at 3900 rpm. Not exactly an I-80 car. It might survive at lower speeds on the interstate for a while, but the entrance ramps would be nightmarish. I'm guessing a good cruising speed would be about 50 - 55.
