For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a time machine of a car, a 1955 Ford Fairlane 4 door. Many car enthusiasts shake a stick at 4-dr classics. I would challenge then to do the same to this one. The exterior of the Ford is painted in a classic midnight black paint that allows the white and blue interior to radiate and shine. The wide white walls also help to preserve the 50s look as does the high volume of chrome. Helping maintain this car’s collectability is the numbers matching engine and transmission. Under the hood you’ll find a 272 4 BBL V8 engine backed by a “Ford-o-Matic” transmission. There are just 61,722 original miles on this car which is most likely lower than most 2005 used Ford on the market today! Looking inside the Fairlane you’ll find the original style interior that has been refurbished throughout the years. The back seats have plenty of room for family or friends. Image pulling up in this classic ride for a family get together. For the first time, Ford offered seat belts as a dealer option (not factory installed, with instructions provided by a Service Bulletin). Also new for 1955 was Ford’s first factory installed air conditioner. This “Select Aire” option featured an integrated heater core and evaporator coil unit within the dash and cold air discharge vents located on top of the dash on either side of the radio speaker. It is a very neat looking design that you will enjoy as you cruise this car. If you are looking for a classic Ford with plenty of room, class, and originality, here it is.
