During the early 1950s, while the Ford models certainly sold well and provided strong value, styling was quite conservative, and the flathead V-8 reached its development peak. Clearly, a dose of innovation was in order. Following introduction of the all-new “Y-Block” V-8 engine for 1954, the 1955 Ford models were completely redesigned with longer, lower and wider bodies, two-tone finishes, distinctive brightwork and striking interiors. The front grille was given an updated look; the Fairlane also featured “eyebrows” above the headlamps and chrome side-sweep moldings. Also introduced was the Wrap-Around windshield, which offered a more modern appearance and a panoramic view.

This 1955 Fairlane Sunliner was the full-size convertible offered by Ford. This particular car has been restored and has a very handsome appeal finished in two-tone red and white with a black soft-top. The exterior is highlighted by chrome bumpers, distinctive side moldings, fender skirts and a Continental tire kit. The interior is a matching two-tone red and white with a radio, clock, heater and red boot for the convertible top. The engine is a carbureted V-8 engine backed by a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission; dual exhaust, whitewall tires and factory chrome wire wheel covers complete this exceptional presentation.
