Six Series Sunliner Convertible
Ford's top-of-the-line Fairlane Sunliner, with an amazing production run of 58,147 units, was America's best-selling convertible in 1956. Part of its appeal was its affordable price, just $2,459 without options. Although the basic styling was similar to the 1955 model, the 1956 Ford received wide publicity for a new Lifeguard Safety package, which included double-grip door latches, an energy-absorbing steering wheel with a deeply recessed hub, plus optional front seat belts, padded dash and padded sun visors. Motor Trend Magazine recognized the Lifeguard Package as the year's 'most significant advancement.' Other enhancements for 1956 included the adoption of a 12-volt electrical system and bolder 'Fairlane stripe' side trim.

This Fairlane Sunliner Convertible is finished in 'Fiesta Red and White,' one of '25 body-color-upholstery ensembles,' according to Ford literature. Options include a 292 cubic-inch 'Thunderbird' V8 rated at 202 horsepower, Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and a nine-tube 'Town and Country' signal-seeking pushbutton radio.
