|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible has been given a professional cosmetic restoration and finished in the unusual Bumblebee two-tone color combination. It is equipped with the 272 cubic-inch Y-bloc V-8 rated at 162 horsepower and mated to a Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic gearbox. There are hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes that keep this 115.5-inch wheelbase car in the driver's control. A cold-air air conditioning unit has been added and updated with 134-R coolant. Options include a Deluxe radio, dual spotlights, dual fog lights, dual exhaust and passenger curbside feelers. There is a continental kit, fender skirts, wide white walls, and spinner hubcaps. There have been only three owners since new for this car.
In 2008, the car was brought to the Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by the Worldwide Auctioneers. It was estimated to sell for $60,000 - $70,000. Bidding failed to reach those estimates and the lot was left unsold.
