The bodystyle for the 1955 Fairlane was new though the mechanical components remained mostly unchanged. The Mileage Maker straight-6 engine displaced 223 cubic-inches and produced 120 horsepower. A new optional 272 cubic-inch Y-block V8 offered even more power.

Introduced on GM cars the previous year, the 1955 Fords featured a panoramic windshields. Air conditioning was offered as optional equipment, which included a front-mounted evaporator with cold air discharge vents located on top of the dash, a condenser unit in the trunk, plus a pair of air ducts in the trunk and clear tubes which ran from the rear package shelf into air ducts in the headliner. Few units were sold as it was a very expensive system.

The first 'Crown Victoria' 2-door 6-seat coupe also appeared in 1955. It was part of the Ford Fairlane range, which differed from the regular Victoria model by a stainless steel band that 'crowned' the roofline, passing over the car as an extension of the B-pillar. Production of the 'Crown Victoria' lasted from 1955 to 1956.

This example is finished in Buckskin Brown and Snowshoe White, with a two-tone interior. It has been completely restored, including the 245 horsepower V8. There is factory SelectAire air conditioning, power steering and brakes, a power seat, power windows, a Ford-O-Matic transmission, an AM radio with a rear speaker, rear fender skirts, stainless wire hubcaps, correct bias-ply whitewall tires, and Westinghouse bumper-mounted driving lights.

This Crown Victoria has covered only 317 miles since the completion of its restoration. It was shown at the Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance where it was displayed in 2009, and at the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada Concours in 2010, where it scored 99 points.
