1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria -Utah Showroom
The American Ford line of cars gained a new body for 1955 to keep up with surging Chevrolet, although it remained similar to the 1952 Ford underneath. The Mileage Maker I-6 was bumped up to 223CID for 120hp and the new-for-1954 Y-block V8 was now offered in two sizes: Standard Fords used a 272CID version with 162hp with 2-barrel carburetor and single exhaust or 182hp with 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust.
Apart from the engine changes, customers were sure to notice the new Fairlane, which replaced the Crestline as the top trim level, while a new Crown Victoria-style featured a chrome "basket handle" across the familiar (and continued) "Victoria" hardtop roof, which originally appeared on the Mercury XM-800 concept car. The company now marketed three different rooflines on its two-door models; the tall two-pillar Mainline, Customline, and Fairlane sedans, pillarless hardtop Fairlane Victoria and the chrome-pillar Fairlane Crown Victoria. The Fairlane Crown Victoria was also offered with a transparent "skylighted" top.
This Crown Victoria has been fully restored and features a very popular 2 tone rose pink and white combination with matching interior. This car is equipped with the overhead valve Y-block engine and Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission. Options include Continental sparetTire kit and genuine wire wheels. The original wire wheel covers are included.
