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.

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

Like New - Very well redone 1956 Ford Fairlane - SOLD!
Take a very very close look at this stunning 56 ford Fairlane 2 door sedan!
Have you ever seen a 56 so cherry? The current owner of 9 years updated the
car in 2002 with power out of a 1989 Lincoln 302 4 speed over-drive
automatic transmission! The 302 has a new Holley 600 carburetor. At the
same time the motor was done, the front end was also done which was 16,000
miles ago. We have been told that the Lincoln donor motor had about 60K
miles on it--so overall motor miles are approximately 76K. It also has a
dual servo master cylinder.
The car also has professional conversion kit P/S, Lincoln 4-way power disk
brakes, R/H, an after market kit A/C, Lincoln 4-way power disk brakes, 6
disk player in the trunk, very sanitary VDO gauges in the dash, and spot
lights--of course. The outside of the car keeps with the stock approach
with a little upgrade with chrome and of course lake pipes, newer Super
Steel 535 205/55R16 tires, mags, and dual Exhaust that provides a great rumble.
The interior speaks for itself and is very very clean job as is the rest of
the car (it has just been done right). A full picture by picture was done
as the work went along. This is a superb frame up. You are worthy of this
car and all you have to do is just turn the key and drive away! As
previously stated, this is a health forces the sale I really wish I could

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.
