1955 Ford Crown Victoria Skyliner “Glass Top” 2-Door Hardtop
Model Year History Overview:
The 1955 Ford, bearing some resemblance to the 1952-54 models, was a good design, clean and highly chromed, with a rakish look of motion.  An interesting model for 1955-56 was the two-door Crown Victoria, developed from the 1954 Skyliner.  Some featured the Plexiglas transparent half-top, like this model.  All had a broad, stainless-steel wrap over roof band that looked like a roll bar, but added little if any strength.  Ford sold 13,344 Plexiglas roof cars for 1954, 1,999 for 1955 and only 603 for 1956.  Though attractive, they were expensive and the Plexiglas roof made them hot on a summer day.  This model was dropped for 1957
This car has been restored and was in a Cincinnati, Ohio museum for 9 years.  All of the glass except the windshield is original.
