1955 Ford Fairlane Sedan #6238 Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis
For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a time machine of a car, a 1955 Ford Fairlane 4 door. Many car enthusiasts shake a stick at 4-dr classics. I would challenge then to do the same to this one. The exterior of the Ford is painted in a classic midnight black paint that allows the white and blue interior to radiate and shine. The wide white walls also help to preserve the 50s look as does the high volume of chrome. Helping maintain this car's collectability is the numbers matching engine and transmission. Under the hood you'll find a 272 4 BBL V8 engine backed by a "Ford-o-Matic" transmission. There are just 61,722 original miles on this car which is most likely lower than most 2005 used Ford on the market today! Looking inside the Fairlane you'll find the original style interior that has been refurbished throughout the years. The back seats have plenty of room for family or friends. Image pulling up in this classic ride for a family get together. 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. It is a very neat looking design that you will enjoy as you cruise this car. If you are looking for a classic Ford with plenty of room, class, and originality, here it is.

132559 / 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Custom
This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama, Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George Barris and John Force among others. Body modifications include a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55 Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon and Cadillac wheel covers. The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460 cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460 aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s with Doug's Headers and a Modine radiator rounding out the package. An A-arm front suspension houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears, Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. Inside, 1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized '56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make you smile.
