The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1971 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan.
Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was a full-size car during the 1950s. A facelift for 1958 saw fashionable quad headlights, a grille that matched the 1958 Thunderbird, and other styling changes. New big-block FE V8s of 332 and 352 in³ (5.4) and (5.8 L) replaced the previous largest V8s, and a better 3-speed automatic transmission was also available.

Ford Motor Company is an American automaker and the world's fifth largest
automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. Based in Dearborn, Michigan, a
suburb of Detroit, the automaker was founded by Henry Ford, and
incorporated on June 16, 1903. Henry Ford was 40 years old when he founded
the Ford Motor Company, which would go on to become one of the largest and
most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to
survive the Great Depression. The largest family-controlled company in the
world, the Ford Motor Company has been in continuous family control for
over 100 years. Ford now encompasses several brands, including Lincoln and
The Ford line of cars was updated in 1937 with one major change — the
introduction of an entry-level 136 CID (2.2 L) V8 in addition to the
popular 221 CID (3.6 L) V8 unit. The model was a refresh of its
predecessor, itself based on Ford's V8-powered Model 40A and was the
company's main product. It was redesigned more thoroughly in 1941. The cost
was $850 ($13003 in today's dollars) in the beginning of production.
The 1937 Ford featured a more rounded look with fine horizontal bars in the
convex front and hood-side grilles. The front grille was V-shaped, rather
than following the fenders into a pentagon shape, as on the 1936 model.
Faired-in headlights were a major modernization found on both the Standard
and DeLuxe trim versions, though much of the rest of the design was shared
between Ford's two lines. 'Slantback' sedans gained a rear trunk door,
though space was limited, and 'Trunkback' versions continued gaining
The Ford River Rouge Complex (commonly known as the Rouge Complex or just
The Rouge) is a Ford Motor Company automobile factory complex located in
Dearborn, Michigan, along the Rouge River, upstream from its confluence
with the Detroit River at Zug Island. Construction began in 1917, and when
it was completed in 1928 it had become the largest integrated factory in
The Rouge measures 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide by 1 mile (1.6 km) long,
including 93 buildings with nearly 16 million square feet (1.5 km²) of
factory floor space. With its own docks in the dredged Rouge River, 100
miles (160 km) of interior railroad track, its own electricity plant, and
ore processing, the titanic Rouge was able to turn raw materials into
running vehicles within this single complex, a prime example of
vertical-integration production. Over 100,000 workers were employed there
in the 1930s.
Some of the Rouge buildings were designed by Albert Kahn. His Rouge glass
plant was regarded at the time as an exemplary and humane factory building,
with its ample natural light coming through windows in the ceiling. More
recently, several buildings have been converted to "green" structures with
a number of environmentally friendly features. However, many vehicular
skeletons remain buried on the grounds of the Rouge..
It was not until 1927 that automobile production began there, with the
introduction of the Ford Model A. Later Rouge products included the 1932
Model B, the original Mercury, the Ford Thunderbird, and four decades of
Ford Mustangs. The old
assembly plant was idled with the construction and launch of a new assembly
facility on the Miller Road side of the complex, currently producing Ford
F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT pickup trucks.
On May 26, 1937, a group of workers attempting to organize a union at the
Rouge were severely beaten, an event later called the Battle of the
Overpass. Peter E. Martin's respect for labor led to Walter Reuther, a UAW
leader, allowing Martin to be the only Ford manager to retrieve his papers
or gain access to the plant...
