1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
MOTOR SIZE CORRECTION Any time we get stunning 50's era Detroit metal into our Vanguard Motor Sales showroom, it tends to attract a lot of attention and usually doesn't stick around very long. This 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status. It's the perfect car for anyone who wants an exceptionally well done restoration for half the price of doing it themselves. This car takes everything that was great about the first generation Fairlane and wraps it in outstanding workmanship. From top to bottom, the body of this car is as straight as when it rolled out of the factory. Dressed in two-tone red and white, the cars paint features an excellent shine with no major flaws or damage. The red and white color scheme gives the car a classic feeling. Panel gaps are just how you would expect, the door lips and jambs are clean and rust free. We were stunned by the quality of the stainless trim on this car, it is truly exceptional. Both the front and rear chrome bumpers are beautiful as well. A hood mounted Ford emblem and "Fairlane" script are centered on the hood and line up perfectly with the hood ornament. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows down the side of the car, and the great looking Ford emblems with "Crown Victoria" badges are centered on each door. Ahead of the front fender openings, V8 emblems announce the presence of a Ford Y block. The Crown Victoria exclusive chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim is in truly awesome condition. On the right side of the trunk a "Ford-O-Matic" script announces the presence of a hydraulic transmission. As the body tag reads, this Fairlane is a top of the line car that features an excellent running correct 312 Y-block V8. You can see the "Thunderbird" polished valve covers, aluminum intake, custom made ceramic powder coated headers by Red's Headers, an Edelbrock carb and the gorgeous air cleaner. The heater blower motor and duct work have been restored. In front of the engine the generator and cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss black radiator. Power steering and power front disc brakes are also included. The frame and underside of the car are solid! There have been a few repairs to the floor boards and rocker on the driver side, but the passenger side has been untouched. Any repairs that were done, were done beautifully. The original rear end is present along with 2 inch lowering blocks. The 2 inch aluminum dual Exhaust and Smithy mufflers sound awesome. Behind the oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic 2-speed transmission. The rear drum brakes appear to be in excellent condition. Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been excellently done. A new headliner is tight across the roof and features the bottom side of the Crown Victoria 'basket handle'. In front of you, a perfectly restored dash houses the speedometer, fuel and temperature gauges, warning lights and a gear selector window. In the center of the dash you'll find a clock, and a unique AM radio. Updates include a 1956 Ford steering column and the steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring. The restored trunk features a new mat. This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a high level of detail and carefully maintained. If you wanted to restore a car to this level on your own, you'd be well into the 6 figure range and probably sink years into the project. Beautiful, solid, well done cars like this don't come along too often and given the attention it draws in our showroom, I expect it to be rolling out the door before too long.
