When people think of cars from the mid-50s lots of chrome and bright colors often come to mind. The 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible certainly fits that bill. This car has been meticulously restored with a frame-off restoration process that took four and a half years. The result is a car that looks perfect and brand new everywhere and has an undercarriage so clean you could eat off it.
The 1955 Ford Sunliner convertible is painted in two-tone Snowshoe White and Seasprite Green with plenty of polished chrome that gleams. The cloth top is tan and looks fantastic with the two-tone paint giving it a style that a basic black top would be unable to match.
The car rolls on steel wheels with gleaming chrome hubcaps. The lip of the wheels has the same Seasprite Green combined with old-fashioned whitewalls. The trunk is as perfect as the exterior of the car complete with a spare tire that has its wheels painted in the same shade of green.
The interior of the 1955 Ford Sunliner convertible is something that would only be made in the ’50s with a combination of white and green upholstery that perfectly matches the outside of the car and the Seasprite Green paint. Everything looks pristine and new inside. The engine bay is as clean as everything else on the vehicle with its 272 cubic inch V8 engine sporting a 2 barrel carb.
No shifting gears in this high-end old-school ride, power goes to the road via a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. This 1955 Ford Sunliner convertible marks the very first year that Ford made the Fairlane. It’s easy to see why this car has numerous awards to its credit; the restoration is perfect. You pay for that perfection too; the price is $73,900. The less ornate Fairlane of 1965 is more attractive to some.
