1955 Ford Crown Victoria Skyliner:
Ford’s Skyliner Crown Vic hardtop coupe was built only in 1955 and 1956 and was a revolutionary car combining a plexiglass roof with the brand-new Crown Victoria styling. Our 1955 model is absolutely outstanding in ways that make it among the finest of these rare cars:
- Outstanding restoration of a rare car (one of 1,999 made in 1955)
- Excellent respray in Yellow and White
- Detailed engine compartment
- Front disc brakes
- Dual line brake system conversion
- 12 volt conversion
- Looks/drives like new
For those who might wish to decode the car:
Excellent from Top to Bottom
- Paint and Body
The excellent quality of the color-change re-spray of this hardtop coupe in Yellow and White makes you think you’re in the showroom at the Ford dealership back in 1955. The body is straight and the panel gaps are correct.
The chrome and stainless trim is all in excellent condition, setting off the elegance of the two-tone car.
The underside of this Skyliner is exceptionally clean.
The yellow and white vinyl interior is clean and fresh-looking, and is the perfect complement to the car’s paint scheme.
The headliner looks as new.
The gauges all work properly as do the lights, wipers, turn signals and horn.
- Acrylic Glass Hardtop
The yellow acrylic glass hardtop extends over the front half of the interior, accented by the chrome “basket handle” that characterized the new design of the ’55 Crown Victoria. The yellow tint to the acrylic keeps the interior bright but provides a filter from the sun.
The Ford 272 cid V-8 cylinder engine rests in a fully detailed engine compartment. At the turn of the key the engine comes to life and runs properly.
The car’s automatic transmission works smoothly and properly.
The brakes on the Ford bring it to a safe stop without any pulling from side to side.
- Safety, dependability and Comfort Features
This Skyliner has front disc brakes and a dual-line brake system for additional safety.
For convenience and dependability, the car has been converted to a 12-volt electrical system.
Power steering makes driving this Crown Vic in the city a breeze.
The car has Ford’s Magic Aire heating/ventilation system to heat and bring fresh air into the cabin. The original AM radio features pushbutton tuning. The original clock relies on periodic winding to keep time!
The car has fender skirts and whitewall radial tires to give it added flare.
An Outstanding Example of Ford’s Iconic Crown Victoria Plexiglass/Hardtop Coupe
There is one word that can best describe this 1955 Skyliner coupe: WOW! Great paint, excellent upholstery, safety and convenience upgrades, both a hardtop and fixed sunroof coupe: all of which make this classic Crown Victoria Fairlane an enjoyable car to drive as well as a sound investment. What can’t be quantified is the feeling one gets when sitting behind the wheel of this unique car that is dreamed about by so many other car enthusiasts but owned by so few.
