55_glasstop_motortrend.jpg 1955 was an exciting year for car enthusiasts when vibrant fancy new two tone models including the glass top ford crown victorias came onto the market.  The Crown Victoria glasstop became the jewel in the Crown, and will engage the memories of many baby boomers.

Previously the models were called Ford Crestline, but were re-named Fairlanes, after the name of Henry Ford’s not so humble place of abode,  ‘Fair Lane’. The cars featured a stainless steel band midway across their roof.

The automatic pink and white 1955 Ford Fairlane pictured above is up for auction  on ebay by ldj427 and is sure to evoke memories for those who hungered for one of these stylish two door hardtop convertibles. 

 The auction is generating a lot of interest with 20 bids!!
