Ford blue, perfect hue

   I'd say the painter got just the right shade of Robin's Egg Blue on this 1956 Ford private taxi. Probably not this car's original paint scheme, however. As the hood badge and the holes for the V-shaped side chrome spear attest, it's a Fairlane, rather than a lower level Mainline or Customline. As such it would have been a two-tone car, I should think. Ford experts will tell me if I'm wrong.
   Also not sure if it retains the 292-cubic-inch Thunderbird V-8 that was the standard eight-cylinder engine for the Fairlane.
   But it does still bear its original V8 badges.
