The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford’s estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan.

Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car, but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there.

The U.S. auto industry’s phenomenal year of 1955 found Ford in a familiar place: second to Chevrolet overall, but first in convertible sales with the 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible Coupe.

In a record-setting model year in which more than 7 million American passenger cars were built, the dramatically new Chevy drew more than 1.7 million orders, about 250,000 more than the 1,451,157 Fords produced.

But, as they had done in most years since the convertible coupe style arrived on the scene, ragtop lovers flocked to Ford showrooms in 1955. They took home 49,966 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible Coupes. Only Chevy came remotely close with about 41,000 soft-top sales.
