Description of BEAUTIFUL FORD SUNLINER! GORGEOUS PAINT/INTERIOR, 272ci Y-BLOCK, 3 SPD W/ OD

To put the rarity of this 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner convertible into perspective, since 2011 we've featured more than forty 1955 Chevrolet convertibles, but this is the only 1955 Ford convertible. The fact that it's also beautifully presented and very stylish means that you can stand out in a crowd without needing something nobody's ever heard of before.First off, yes, this is a 1955 Ford. Experts will note that the grille and some of the trim make it look like a '56, but that's because the fellow who restored it preferred the look. But have no fear, it is indeed titled as a '55 and the VIN is that of a 1955 Ford Sunliner. More importantly, black and white will always be stylish, but few cars wear it better than the top-of-the-line Ford Fairlane. Bisected by that sweeping trim that stretches from nose to tail, this car is pure 1950s style and elegance. Finish quality on this particular example is fantastic, offering great bodywork and a deep gloss on the final finish, both of which are critical with black paint. And, of course, there's no missing all that chrome, regardless of what year it is. You know it's expensive to restore but they weren't skimping here: the bumpers, side trim, and all the other shiny bits look fantastic. It's also loaded with accessories, including fender skirts, dual antennas on the rear deck, and bumper guards.The handsome interior echoes the bodywork with black and white vinyl, but the red piping and floor mats are what really make it sparkle. Those of you who have driven an early T-Bird will recognize the domed speedometer, and the three round pods in the center of the dash house the heater controls, radio, and clock, respectively. You'll also see three pedals on the floor, because this car has a 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, so it's a fantastic highway cruiser. And speaking of cruising, you don't have to suffer with whatever passes for entertainment on AM radio, because there's a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo head unit hidden in the glove box and a 12-inch Rockford-Fosgate subwoofer discreetly installed in the trunk. The speedometer is actually in kilometers, not miles, which explains the highly optimistic 200 figure at the far end. Overhead, there's a snug-fitting black canvas convertible top and it stows neatly under a matching vinyl boot for a clean look. The trunk is also neatly finished and includes a matching full-sized spare tire.1955 was the second year for Ford's "Y-Block" V8 engine, with the powerplant in this Fairlane displacing 272 cubic inches. The distinctive valve covers and exhaust manifolds make it easy to recognize and it was restored some years ago using correct Ford Red paint and decals throughout, so it looks right. Sure, there are some miles on it, but that means it's sorted and ready to go, and the soundtrack from the twin tailpipes out back will make you fall in love. The 3-speed shifts well and it rides like a luxury car should, thanks to a stock suspension with quite a few new components. The floors have been undercoated so you don't have to worry about using this Ford as intended and the exhaust system, shocks, and fuel tank look pretty fresh. Flashy chrome wire hubcaps and new 215/75/15 BFGoodrich Silvertown wide whitewall radials are pretty much the best choice for a car that looks this good and drives this well.So if you're a Ford guy, this is a car that's easy to love and the unique changes make it one that will keep everyone guessing. Either way, we bet you'll love it. Call today!
