1955 Ford Versailles

Available in other two versions, the Trianon, the Régence, with the Versailles in between. Its side-valve V8 had grown to 2353cc.

The reviewer in the 10 December 1955 issue of Bedrijfsvervoer was enthusiastic about its performance (0-100 km/h in 20 seconds, top speed of 139 km/h) and road holding, saying the Versailles is almost a sports car! The reason for a road test was an invitation, by the Dutch Ford Works, to become reacquainted with a 'lady' who had an American father and a French mother, who had just remarried (i.e. Simca).
