For Sale: 1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner is an awesome 50s convertible finished in an eye-catching two-tone color scheme. Making its initial debut in 1955, the Ford Fairlane replaced the Crestline as the top of the line passenger car model for Ford. The name "Fairlane" was borrowed from Henry and Clara Ford's 1,300 acre "Fair Lane" Estate located in Dearborn, Michigan. These new Fairlanes sported a completely new design, distinguishing themselves from the previous Crestline models, featuring longer, lower, and wider bodies, along with special "V" shaped side trim along the belt line. With the exception of a few updates to the exterior trim, front grilles, and driving lights, the exteriors on the Fairlane went largely unchanged in 1956. Perhaps the biggest two changes made to the 1956 Fords occurred under the hoods and in the passenger cabins. First of all, the electrical systems in 1956 across all Fords were upgraded to a 12 volt system which made the '56 Fords start up more reliably and made the electrical systems across the car more dependable. Second, Ford redesigned the instrument cluster and steering wheel since customers complained in 1955 that the speedometer was hard to read. Under the hood on on this 1956 Sunliner is a 292 Cubic Inch V8 engine paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor that was said to have pushed out 200 horsepower when new. The 292 V8 is backed by a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission that makes this Fifties Ford a breeze for anybody to drive. Exhaust exits this Ford's powerplant via a dual exhaust setup that gives the car a nice throaty sound. This Ford Sunliner is packed with some wonderful options! With power brakes, bringing this '56 Ford to a full stop is made much easier and improves the overall driving experience. The white vinyl power convertible top is in excellent shape and goes up and down with ease and is operated via an under-dash mounted toggle. A set of matching fender skirts and rear-mounted continental kit further add to the 50s allure of this Fairlane Sunliner. This Sunliner Convertible rides on a set of wide whitewall radial tires that are each paired with chrome wire basket wheel covers. The exterior was correctly refinished in a beautiful two-tone paint scheme consisting of Mandarin Orange and Colonial White, completing the exterior look of the car. The interior of this Sunliner is stunning! The front and rear bench seats have been correctly reupholstered in White Vinyl with matching Orange Vinyl inserts. The Mandarin Orange painted dash, White and Orange Vinyl upholstered door panels, and steering wheel all appear to be in their stock configuration and are in superb condition. The dash is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, and fuel gauge along with a clock and push-button AM radio. A trifecta of SunPro gauges consisting of gauges for volts, temperature, and oil pressure are mounted neatly under the dash as well. Whether you're adding to your blue oval 50s collection or you're buying your first classic car, this 1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner would make an excellent choice. Give us a call today at 763-428-7337!
