Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this beautiful 1955 Ford Sunliner Convertible
Ragtop lovers flocked to Ford showrooms in 1955. They took home 49,966 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner Convertible Coupes. Only Chevy came remotely close with about 41,000 soft-top sales. Dramatically new sheet metal and a trendy wraparound windshield draped the carryover 115.5-inch-wheelbase chassis. A concave checkerboard grille, Fairlane "checkmark" bodyside trim, and large "Jet-Tube" taillights completed the look in '55. This gorgeous classic car screams of the '50s. We're pretty sure you can hear the Happy Days theme song if you listen closely.
The Sunliner is powered by its original, numbers matching 292 CID V8 and Cruise-O-Matic transmission. The drive train has been recently rebuilt and now has just 3,500 miles! The car features a new top, lift cylinders, heater core, gas tank, alternator, rear air shocks, and front suspension. The exterior of the car is painted in a great looking red paint which glares and is highlighted by lots of chrome!
The interior is comprised of a custom red/black vinyl upholstery. The interior has been fully customized and makes this car show ready. The door panels have been done in a nice classical red flame with black backing to keep a smooth transition from the exterior inward. The chromed dash really makes you feel like you're sitting in a â50s diner. Other options include: A/C, AM/FM Radio, Convertible Auto Top, Hub Caps, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, White Walls, and Radial Tires. The numbers matching rear-end was also rebuilt just 3,500 miles ago. The whole drivetrain has been rebuilt and is ready to hit the road.
