Fair Lane was the name of the estate of Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford and his wife, Clara Ford, in Dearborn, Michigan, in the United States. It was named after an area in the city of Cork, Ireland where Ford's adoptive grandfather, Patrick Ahern, was born.

The Ford Fairlane was produced by the Ford motor company from 1955 through 1969. The original body design was the full sized Ford body which started out as a family vehicle and slowly evolved into many different available models and body styles.

The exterior paint and trim options, seemed endless with elaborate cloth woven seat covers and a rainbow of paint combinations, you could virtually have any variety of Fairlane your heart desired. Variety was big in the early days which makes these cars somewhat more difficult to restore but all the more interesting to the collector.

The Ford Fairlane was introduced in 1955 as Ford's full-size model and was available in six different body styles. The vehicle could be assembled as a 2 door club sedan, a 4 door town sedan, a Victoria 2 door hardtop, a Sunliner convertible, a Crown Victoria, or a Crown Victoria with a plastic top.

There were wide assortments of engines to select from. The base 223 cubic-inch, Inline-six cylinder engine produced 120 horsepower. A modified version of the engine produced 137 horsepower. The 272 cubic inch, V8 engine produced 162 horsepower with the modified version producing 182 horsepower. In

1956, two new V8 engines were introduced. The 292 cubic-inch engine produced 200 horsepower. The 312 cubic-inch produced 215 horsepower with the modified version producing 225 horsepower.

In 1956 a four door Town Victoria hard-top was added to the line up.

The 1957 models retained a single-headlight front end like their predecessors, but were unmistakable with their long flanks and tailfins. A plethora of trim lines was introduced, starting with the base "Custom", "Custom 300", "Fairlane", and top-line "Fairlane 500".

The two Custom lines used a 116 in wheelbase, while the Fairlanes had 118 in between the wheels. A new pickup truck based on the short-wheelbase chassis was also introduced, the Ranchero.

The 223 cubic-inch OHV Straight-6 continued, now with 144 hp. The V8 lineup included a 272 cubic-inch Y-block making 190 hp, a 292 cubic-inch Thunderbird version making 212 hp, a 312 cubic inch V8 making 245 hp and a supercharged 312 cubic-inch Thunderbird Special making 300 hp, and designated "Police Interceptor" on the glove box.

A dual 4 barrel version of the naturally aspirated (non-supercharged) 312 cubic inch V8 rated at 270 hp was reportedly available, although that engine option was not listed in most Ford sedan factory literature and is more commonly associated with one of the optional Thunderbird engines.

This option was dubbed "E code" and featured a unique camshaft, cylinder heads, intake manifold and various other performance enhancements. It came standard with the deep-dish steering wheel. The radio became transistorized. There were lights for the generator and oil instead of gauges. The controls became reccesed for more safety (the Lifeguard safety package was still available)

A new frame was used for the 1957 Fords. It moved to perimeter rails out, so that they would fully envelope the passengers.

In a survey of 1957 Ford owners in the March, 1957 issue of Popular Mechanics, only 6.2% of owners ordered seat belts.

In fact, the 1957 Ford, has become one of the most sought after automobiles of the tailfin era in recent years. In 1957, the Ford passenger cars outsold Chevy by almost half a million units. Now, enthusiasts are catching onto the `57 Ford.
