Circa 1958, Ford launches its all new Fairlane with an
unprecedented road trip around the globe testing the durability and
comfort on some roads that have changed little since the Roman
empire. Fords new frame, referred at the time as the "Inner Ford",
had a new wide-base design that lowered the center the Gravity for
greater stability. New Ball-Joint front suspension took the bounce
out of the bumps, and Even-Keel rear suspension combined softer
action with level-ride control. Also new for 1958 was the
Interceptor V8 engine, new Cruise-O-Matic Transmission an
Magic-Circle steering. At the time, there was nothing newer in the
world than the Ford Fairlane. The Fairlane was offered in many
configurations including: 2-door Hard top, 4 Door Sedan, Station
Wagon and the ultra rare and desirable Skyliner.
