1950-1970 FORD FAIRLANE PERFORMANCE PORTFOLIO  

THIS IS MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ANY FAIRLANE FAN.  THIS IS A BRAND  NEW BOOK WITH 140  PAGES .

THE FAIRLANE, NAMED AFTER HENRY FORD'S MANSION NEAR DEARBORN, WAS INTRODUCED IN 1955 AS THE HIGHEST PRICED AND MOST LUXURIOUS CAR  IN THE FORD RANGE.  ULTIMATELY, IT BROUGHT ITS OWN SHARE OF THRILLS TO THE MARKET PLACE AND AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE REPORTS INCLUDED HERE, IT BECAME A SUCCESS STORY. 

THE THRILLS STARTED WITH STYLING, THOUGH THE PLEXIGLAS "ROLL-BAR" ROOF OF THE 55 FAIRLANE CROWN VICTORIA DIDN'T PROVE AS POPULAR AS FORD HAD HOPED.  NOT LONG AFTERWARDS,  HOWEVER, IT WAS THE FAIRLANE LINE WHICH CARRIED THE RETRACTABLE ROOF ON ITS SKYLINER MODEL, WHICH TODAY, BECAUSE OF THIS FEATURE, HAS BECOME ON OF THE MOST COLLECTIBLE AUTOMOBILES OF THE '50S. 

THE REAL THRILLS BEGAN IN THE 1960S, UNDER LEE IACOCCA.  THE 62 FAIRLANE EARNED ITS PLACE IN HISTORY AS THE MODEL WHICH INTRODUCED THE CLASSIC SMALL-BLOCK V8, AN ENGINE WHICH WOULD CARRY FORD THROUGH THE PERFORMANCE YEARS IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT MODELS.  AND WHEN OTHER MANUFACTURERS BEGAN TO SCORE HITS WITH HIGH-POWERED INTERMEDIATES AS THE POWER RACE HEATED UP, IT WAS TO  THE FAIRLANE WHICH FORD TURNED FOR ITS OWN CONTENDER.  EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT A SHOWROOM MODEL, THE 427 THUNDERBOLT DRAG RACER DERIVED FROM THE TWO-DOOR FAIRLANE ESTABLISHED FORD'S CREDIBILITY AT A STROKE. 

FROM THEN ON, THE FAIRLANE LINE ALWAYS FEATURED PERFORMANCE MODELS, WITH ENGINES RANGING FROM THE SMALL-BLOCK 289, THRU THE 390, ON TO THE BIG-BLOCK 428 COBRA JET, AND FINISHING UP WITH THE CLASSIC CLEVELAND 351.
