Description:

Time to cash in on the fact that ''50s Fords are a screaming bargain compared to their Chevy competition. Take this wonderful 1955 Ford Fairlane for example, which offers ''50s chrome and two-tone flash, a great-running V8, and enough room for your entire family, all for a price that''s thousands less than a comparable Chevy. A full cosmetic restoration was completed a few years ago, and it''s been accurately finished in Snowshoe White over Mountain Green, just like the door tag says. Styling is instantly recognizable, without the usual excesses that defined the era. All four doors fit well and the paint has the perfect pastel look that suits the vintage Ford to a T. Perhaps the most dramatic element of any Fairlane is the sweeping stainless trim that divides the colors, stretching from the leading edge of the front fenders all the way back to the taillights. As you know, the chrome and trim on any restoration can be shockingly expensive, but they didn''t hesitate and made the investment on this Fairlane, which offers bright bumpers, a crisply rendered grille, and lots of glittering stainless. In addition, the wrap-around windshield, the emblems, and the distinctive round taillight lenses are all in excellent condition. The inviting cloth interior offers seating for up to six and plenty of style and color to satisfy even the most ardent fan of the ''50s. The seat covers are in excellent shape front and rear, and plus carpets give the Fairlane an upscale feel inside. Thunderbird fans will find the dash familiar, with a domed instrument cluster with bright, clear markings on the clear Plexiglas lens. The simple steering wheel has an excellent emblem and horn ring, and you''ll especially like the three round dials in the center of the dash that house the heater/defroster controls, original radio, and clock. And despite the Ford''s rather compact, trim proportions, there''s a massive trunk that will easily carry a week''s worth of luggage for your entire family. There''s also a correct mat that might very well be original, as well as a full-sized spare tire on one of the original wheels. Power comes from the optional U-code 272 cubic inch "Y-block" V8 topped by the original intake and Holley 2-barrel carburetor. The engine bay is quite original, and while it isn''t sparkling like a freshly restored trailer queen, it''s actually quite good for a car approaching its seventh decade of life. That appears to be original Ford engine enamel clinging to the block, and the stylish valve covers show good, bright decals that are the highlight of the engine compartment. However, for all its originality, it runs superbly, with a smoothness and polish that only an untouched car demonstrates. The Ford-O-Matic transmission shifts neatly and there''s a 9-inch out back with highway-friendly 3.31 gears. It''s solid and unrestored underneath, so you can see that this is a good car with no needs and you won''t have to think twice before taking it out on the road. A set of four new 7.10-15 BFGoodrich Silvertown wide whitewall tires have been installed on the original wheels with full wheelcovers. A comfortable, flashy, smooth ''50s cruiser that looks great and remains eminently affordable. What a great way to show up at the next cruise night. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
