In its debut year, the 1955 Ford Fairlane

1955 Ford Fairlane

First introduced in 1955 as Ford's top of the line trim level for the full sized model, the new Ford Fairlane was named after Henry Ford’s Fair Lane mansion in Dearborn. As top of the line, the ’55 Fairlane included chrome around the window and “A” pillar moldings (hardtop and sunliner), chrome brows on the headlight doors and chrome side molding, plus all customline trim and optional was the flashy two-tone paint scheme. 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, and traditional sedans.
