: 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 paint.
The Fairlane was redesigned almost every year up to the shown 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. Also new was a new innovative, lightweight V8 created using a technique known as thin-wall casting.
