This is my Step Uncle's 1955 Ford Fairlane 4 door Town Sedan ,that belonged to his father before he passed,I believe his father owned the car for a very long time ,it now just sits in his garage in east texas,He does have plans on restoring it, truth is its in very good shape!;The Ford Fairlane, named for Henry Ford's Fair Lane mansion in Dearborn, was introduced in 1955 as the new top of the line fullsize Ford. The Fairlane was offered in six different body styles and flavors, from the rare plastic top Crown Victoria, to the convertible Sunliner and steel-top Victoria hardtop coupe, to finally traditional sedans. All body styles featured fine styling with the rakish "Fairlane stripe" side trim and optional flashy two-tone paint. Although over shadowed by the mid 50s Chevy's, the Fairlane were solidly designed (though sometimes sloppily assembled) and relatively quick in V8 form.

1955 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan 272 Y block V8
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1955 Ford Fairlane
two-door club sedan. This car is powered by a nicely detailed 272 Y-block
V8 engine, backed by a Fordomatic automatic transmission. The exterior is
looking great in that period correct two-tone paint and the interior has
been completely redone as well. I hope you find it interesting....thanks

1955 Ford Being built and Tested
The Ford line of cars gained a new body for 1955 to keep up with surging
Chevrolet, although it remained similar to the 1952 Ford underneath. The
Mileage Maker 6 was bumped up to 223 CID (3.7 L) for 120 hp (89 kW) and the
new-for-1954 Y-block V8 was now offered in two sizes: Standard Fords used a
272 CID (4.5 L) version with 162 hp (121 kW), but the large 292 CID (4.8 L)
unit from the Thunderbird was also offered, boasting 193 hp (144 kW).
Apart from the engine changes, customers were sure to notice the new
Fairlane, which replaced the Crestline as the top trim level, while a new
Crown Victoria-style featured a chrome "basket handle" across the familiar
(and continued) "Victoria" hardtop roof, which originally appeared on the
Mercury XM-800 concept car. This use of a styling feature to visually
separate the front of the passenger compartment from the rear reappeared on
the 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird, the Ford Fairmont Futura and Mercury Zephyr
Z-7 coupes. The company now boasted three different rooflines, the tall
two-pillar Mainline, Customline, and Fairlane, lower chrome-pillar Crown
Victoria, and pillarless hardtop Victoria. The "Skyliner" acrylic glass
roof was still offered, this time only on the Crown Victoria model. New
brakes were used 11-inch (280 mm) drums. Also, Fords had a new frame with
five cross members.
The Fords introduced for 1955 also featured the panoramic windshields found
on Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Cadillacs the previous year. With this panoramic
windshield the A-pillars have a vertical angle. this gives the driver more
For the first time, Ford offered seat belts as a dealer option (not factory
installed, with instructions provided by a Service Bulletin). Also new for
1955 was Ford's first factory installed air conditioner. This "Select Aire"
option featured an integrated heater core and evaporator coil unit within
the dash and cold air discharge vents located on top of the dash on either
side of the radio speaker. The "Select Aire" design was carried over to the
1956 models with slightly different cold air vents in the same location as
on the 1955 models. The condenser was mounted in front of the radiator as
in later cars.
Station wagons were offered as a separate series for the first time in
1955. The Ranch Wagon and Custom Ranch Wagon were 2 door wagons whilst the
Country Sedan and Country Squire models were 4 doors wagons, the latter
featuring wooden appliqué side mouldings.

56 Ford Fairlane Victoria -Hard Work is Done-Runs & Drives Great - SOLD!
This great old Ford runs and drives great! When it was purchased, it
needed a new gas tank and the brakes repaired which are done!
We have spent 6 months doing body work which has now all been done. Floor
pans were done as needed, it has been nosed, decked, and frenched, the
Peacock Blue paint has been purchased as well as the white paint.
It has a 292 V -8 with A/T and R/H. The big money work has been done. It
needs the block sanding finished, masked down and shot with paint. The
front and rear seats are good but the rest of the interior needs some help.
The price on it now is $8,000 if you finish it. If we finish it with paint
and interior, the price will be around $19K or better!
For more information, please call 503-855-4345 or 503-998-5499.
