1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Custom

1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Custom (Left Front Angle)

C8DENCE is the word CADENCE replacing the “A” with an “8”. C8DENCE in this instance means a “rhythmic flow of a sequence of sounds” e.g. the sound of the Ford Racing 460 Cobra Jet BIG Block V8 (385 Series) with the aggressive hydraulic camshaft. The piston firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 is the CADENCE.

I was able to secure both the C8DENCE California Personalized License Plates and C8DENCE.com website URL. This website will be used to document the history of the vehicle. I have been in communication with Fred Piluso, the original owner and builder of the vehicle.

I am currently writing a review about my “less than satisfactory” experience of purchasing a custom classic vehicle online from Volo Auto Sales in Volo, Illinois on Monday, June 28, 2021.

The vehicle arrived in Costa Mesa, California on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 13:00 (Pacific Time) and was driven for 10 miles at which time a host of mechanical issues were discovered.

This is an incredible car. Finished 15 years ago and driven 3,500 miles. It still shows and functions incredibly well. I personally drove it home and was impressed. It is ready to be enjoyed – show and go!
