Rare, Documented, Fully Restored Crown Victoria with Original Ford Powertrain!


1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Coupe

VIN U5FW134691

The previous owner is from St. Paul, Minnesota. He is a classic car fanatic. He has been to the "Back to the 50's" car show at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds almost every year for the past 16 years. When I met him, he was wearing a jacket with the year, make and model of every car he had ever owned embroidered on the sleeves…. and the sleeves were close to full! He purchased this beautiful Crown Victoria about a year ago. He put the power front disc conversion kit on it, power rack and pinion steering and all new bushings in the front end. The one thing he wanted to do to this car, which he did not, was add air conditioning. The paint, chrome and interior are beautiful! A packet of receipts and manuals for the work he did is included in the sale.

History of the 1955 Ford Fairlane

The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan.

For 1955, the Fairlane name replaced the Crestline as Ford's premier full-size offering. Six different body styles were offered, including the Crown Victoria Skyliner with a tinted, transparent plastic roof, the regular Crown Victoria coupe with lots of stainless steel trim, a convertible Sunliner, the Victoria coupe, and traditional sedans. All featured the trademark stainless-steel "Fairlane stripe" on the side. Power options were a 223ci straight-6 engine and a 272ci V8. The 292 Y-Block was offered as an option and was called the Thunderbird V-8.
