Historical: The Ford Fairlane, named for Henry
Ford's Fair Lane mansion in Dearborn, was introduced in
1955 as the new top of the line full-size Ford. The
Fairlane was offered in six different body styles and
flavours, from the rare plastic top Crown Victoria, to
the convertible Sunliner and steel-top Victoria hardtop
coupe, to finally traditional sedans. All body styles
featured fine styling with the rakish "Fairlane
stripe" side trim and optional flashy two-tone
The Fairlane was redesigned almost every year up to the
1962 model, when it was reborn as Ford's entry into the
intermediate class. The new midsize Fairlane was nearly
one foot shorter than the full-size Galaxie, and eight
inches longer than the compact Falcon.
