Oh Happy Day! A 55′ Comin’ Your Way!

259

Mel and I have been looking for a clean classic car we could putt around in for sometime now. The planets aligned and we came across a really nice 1955 Ford Fairlane four door. We wanted something that would be easy to get in and out of in case we decide to have a family. A two door is typically more desirable, but I think this car looks really cool for a four door. My father had a 57′ Fairlane when he was younger and said he has pictures of it, so once I get em’ I’ll post them on the site. Anyways, here are some pics of the car:

Red and white, one of the most classic color schemes.

This clean 55 has new paint, upholstery and looks fantastic.

We took it over to our mechanic to have it tuned up and then off to the upholstery guy to tighten up everything on the inside. It is like being in a parade when you drive down the street with all the waves and thumbs up!

If you see us out and about make sure to say hey!

Here are the pictures I promised of my Dad’s 1957 Ford Fairlane 2 door:

Yellowstone Park 1962. My Dad was always camping. I think that is my brother Steve and sister Shelia.

  2. That is awesome! We have been looking for something similar too, but it’s not as easy to find a good (aka rust-free!) one here in the East. I’d love to have a wagon- I’d be the coolest mom at the soccer field for sure!

    • We love our ’55! It took a lot of driving and dissapointment before we found our Fairlane. I plan to drive this and not just park it in the garage and wax it. These cars are meant to be driven. I will say one thing make sure- you ask lots of questions when you buy an old car. You’re right about rust, most of the ones we looked at needed a lot of work. Thanks for your comment!

  3. Why is this so NOT a surprise – haha! It was inevitable. And I can SO see you & the Adorable Mz. Kitty cruising in this! I think you should take a cruise to Carmichael. I will definitely wave & give you the thumbs up! Bring it to the next Cruise night in Folsom!
