Walk around this Fairlane Skyliner and you’ll be impressed by its smooth looks. Both the red and white paint is in fantastic condition, picking up on any amount of light for a dazzling show that really puts on display every last nip and tuck on the long body. Brightwork on trim pieces, plus the bumpers and wheels further highlight the beauty of this machine. It rolls on nice wide whitewall tires, completing the vintage looks.

Once inside this ride, you’ll be surrounded by period-correct appointments. That same red and white color scheme from the exterior is carried in, affecting the door panels, seats, and event he steering wheel. The factory controls, gauges, and radio are all intact, so viewers get the correct representation of what this machine was like when new.

Motivating this big car is an engine equal to the task. The Ford V8 runs smooth and sounds great, plus it works with a convenient automatic transmission for easy operation, so you’re not struggling to shift through gears and stalling out in traffic.  

Ford got the name for the Fairlane from the Fair Lane mansion owned by Henry Ford in the city of Dearborn, Michigan. Launched in 1955 as the full-size model for the brand, it could be had in six different body styles. Of course, the Skyliner was the hardtop convertible version, which was terminated after the 1959 model year. That means not many were made and even fewer have survived into the 21st century, making this particular car highly sought after. Now is a unique opportunity to add one to your collection.
