In 1955, Ford offered a completely redesigned model - both inside and out. The new design provided longer, lower and wider bodies - the lowest being Ford's new Crown Victoria, which was the company's first closed car under five feet high.
Being the top trim level for 1955, the Fairlane included chrome moldings around the windows and 'A' pillar, chrome side sweep moldings, and chrome headlight door eyebrows. The name Crown Victoria was derived from the stainless trim that 'Crowns' the roofline which is also commonly referred to as 'tiara' roof trim.
This Crown Victoria is equipped with a number of Ford options. The car received an off-frame restoration and received the AACA James Melton Memorial Cup award in 2004 plus an AAC Grand National in 2007.
