Fred Piluso's

55 Ford Crown Victoria

Fred's Beautiful 1955 Ford Crown Victoria made its way from the Hawaiian Islands to California to Ohio where the Nosse Brothers, Al and Don put the finishing touches on it for Fred. Having owned many cars over the years like a Lamborghini, 63 Corvette, 51 Mercury and a GT 350 H the Crown Vic is one of his favorite! This Pittsburgh Pennsylvania born Vietnam Veteran ended up in the Waikiki Marketplace area after trying his hand in the airline environment and settled down with Scruples Beach Club which is one of the few nightclubs that stay open until 4AM every night! Even after over 20 years in the Nightclub business, Fred has held a love affair with the automobile!
With Al and Don Nosse doing the work Fred has watched this Dream Car come to Fruition over a 4 year period. It has been given the honor of being a "Boyd's Pick" a "John Force" award, and a "Meguiars" 2005 Sponsorship as well as winning trophies and awards at many of the shows it has been featured at. The 55 now residing in the Northeast Ohio area has been seen at many of the local cruise's such as Solon Commons, Annabelle's, Mr. Chicken & Quaker Steak.
Art Morrison built the custom 3" by 4" boxed frame on a 120" wheelbase. Attached to this are Aldon Springs & Shocks with a 2002 Morrison front end while the back end is tied to a Ford 9" rear end. The spindles are also Morrison with Wildwood brakes in the front with Ford Disc in the back. These are holding Custom Wheels covered with Coker tires which grip the road when the power from the 2003 Ford 460 cubic inch motor with a pair of Holly 600's covered with a Hand Air Cleaner push the fuel through a Blue Thunder manifold past a roller cam with roller lifters onto pistons with Dog Leg Rods. This Ford SVO built motor also has Ford Racing valve covers and Doug's Headers. From there the power is controlled by a 2003 Centerforce Clutch in front of a 1964 Ford Top Loader transmission with a Hurst Shifter.
The Truly Custom body was built by "Burnt Karelson" and used lead to smooth the gaps between body panels. Some of the outstanding features on this one of a kind car are the Thunderbird Grill, 41 Lincoln Push door openers, 55 Mercury tail lights, 55 Mercury Station Wagon front lights, 55 Ford Bumpers and then covered with PPG 2002 Mandarin Copper paint.
The interior 67 Thunderbird Landau seats are done in tan leather by "Keweii" while the Stewart Warner instruments are set in a 56 Ford dash customized by Al & Don Nosse. The steering column is Ididit holding an aluminum Budnick steering wheel which is kept cool with a Vintage Air air conditioner.
