For Sale: 1956 Ford Fairlane in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner is a classic cruiser with a fantastic 50s look! Initially debuting in 1955, the Ford Fairlane supplanted the Crestline as the top of the line model for Ford, besides the sportier Thunderbirds which debuted the same year. These new Fairlanes were completely redesigned, distinguishing themselves from the previous Crestline models. While the new Fairlane design was influenced by the new flagship Thunderbirds, they maintained their own unique styling with special "V" shaped side trim along with longer, lower, and wider bodies. Due to the success of the '55 Fairlane models, little changed with regards to the exterior design for the following year models. Among those minor changes in the '56 Fairlane were new taillights that were larger with chrome rings around them, new oval shaped parking lights which replaced the previously round ones, and slightly different side trim. The biggest changes for the 1956 Fords occurred under the hoods and in the passenger cabins. The electrical systems in 1956 were upgraded to the more reliable 12 volt and the instrument cluster and steering wheels also underwent design changes. Interestingly, the name "Fairlane" came from Henry and Clara Ford's "Fair Lane" Estate located on 1,300 acres in Dearborn, Michigan, which by 1956 was owned and used by the Ford Motor Company as a corporate conference center and tourist destination. This particular 1956 Fairlane Sunliner comes to us from private east coast collection. Under the hood on this '56 Ford is a 292 Cubic Inch V8 engine that is paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor that pushed out 200 horsepower in its day. The 292 V8 is hooked up to an Automatic transmission that just about anybody can drive. Bringing this 1956 Sunliner to a stop is made easier with power brakes with an upgraded dual master cylinder. This '56 Ford Sunliner has been repainted in its original color scheme of Fiesta Red and Colonial White. A rear mounted continental kit adds to the classic 50s look of the car. This classic Ford sits on 4 wide whitewall radial tires on wire wheels with spinner hubcaps that make for a great looking and even better riding classic car. The white vinyl power convertible top is in fantastic condition and goes up and down with the simple toggle of a switch mounted under the dash. The red and white vinyl bench seats are in wonderful condition and are just how this Ford came when it rolled off the Atlanta factory floor in 1956. The dash, door panels, and steering wheel all have a nice stock look as well as does the dash-mounted AM radio. The instrument cluster is in its stock configuration and is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, fuel gauge, and clock along with oil pressure and generator indicator lights. Whether you're looking for your very first classic car from the 1950s or you are looking to add another driver to your collection, this 1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner would be a marvelous choice.
