1955 Ford Fairlane
Sunliner Convertible

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.  Ford offered four models for 1955; Mainline, Customline, Fairlane, and Station Wagon.  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 wrapover 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.
