Named for Henry Ford's Dearborn estate, Ford's premium Fairlane
line debuted alongside the original Thunderbird for 1955. These new
top-line cars helped Ford record its best sales year since 1923.
Just 1,999 buyers, though, chose the expensive 1955 Fairlane Crown
Victoria Skyliner, with Plexiglas top insert. Only 603 more would
select the model in 1956. Ford refreshed Fairlane styling for 1956.
A new Victoria Fordor hardtop joined the line, while two-door
Victoria hardtops gained a new roofline. An enlarged, 312-cid,
Thunderbird V8 and factory air conditioning were fresh options. The
1957 modelsthe newest Fords since 1949featured a redesigned
chassis, which permitted a lower body profile. A new top-series
Fairlane 500 and newly mid-range Fairlane shared a lengthened
118-inch wheelbase. In dealerships across America, the amazing
Fairlane 500 Skyliner drew crowds with every demonstration of its
self-storing metal top. Even now, Crown Victorias rule among
1955-'56 enthusiasts, while the Skyliner retractable hardtop is a
'50s icon. Although Ford outsold Chevy for the model year, 1957
Fairlane 500 convertibles and hardtops are shockingly scarce today.
