4610 Pet Lane
This 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner represents a classic cool cruising convertible with extra V8 power and more thoughtful upgrades. So as you look over this well-coordinated two-tone drop-top, you'll see it really has exactly what you want.
This one is a true 1950s cruiser. After all, only then were the stylists daring enough to create a full-length bright trim line with a beautiful dipping design in the doors. This stunning standout is not only distinctive, but also it provides a dividing line for the turquoise and white. In fact, this convertible is all about distinctive brightwork, like the full-width grille, factory-style wheel covers, jet-inspired taillights, and curvy wraparound bumpers. So it's really great to see someone take the time to make sure it's all ready for primetime. But more than just the factory's work, this one makes sure to really upgrade the classic cruiser look. That's why there's chrome half covers for the headlights, and everyone loves the look of a continental kit on a Fabulous Fifties Ford.
The white convertible top looks great against the paint, and if you like that level of coordination, then you're going to love taking the roof down. The interior is a full two-tone presentation that goes with the exterior two-tone. The dash, door panels, convertible boot, and even the spare tire cover follow this theme. But our favorite part are the seats. They are a nice white with contrasting turquoise piping and turquoise tuck and roll style inserts. It's a true classic driving experience with the artful factory wheel and the retro-cool plexiglass speedometer. But there are also the right driving upgrades. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth tucked away in the glovebox to give you the best in driving music. And an AutoMeter tach was integrated into the dash, which signals the upgrade under the hood.
While there were some nice V8s around during the Sunliner's time, this one has a true upgrade to Ford's legendary 302 cubic-inch motor. And it has the kind of tidy presentation that makes it easy to show off at the car shows. Plus, this has been given a full Edelbrock upgrade with an Edelbrock air cleaner, matching Edelbrock valve covers, an Edelbrock Performer 289 intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. There are also nice supporting components, like steel braided hoses and an MSD coil. If this motor sounds like a great cruising package, then you'll also appreciate the easy driving features, like power steering, an 4 speed automatic overdrive transmission, and dual circuit power brakes with discs up front.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a well-coordinated and nicely-upgraded rolling nostalgia. It's a great total vintage package, and it can all be yours if you call today!
