The FE brought an all new body shape for 1956, with
modern looks and a roomier interior thanks to the longer
wheelbase. There were many improvements, such as the introduction
of a 12 volt electrical system (replacing the previous
6 volt system), engine modifications that included the
use of bigger valves, and compression was lifted to 6.8:1
upping the power to 53kw instead of the usual 45kw.
