The Ford Fairlane was produced by the Ford motor company from 1955 through 1969. The original body design was the full sized Ford body which started out as a family vehicle and slowly evolved into many different available models and body styles. Ford Fairlanes and later Ford Torinos were mid-sized vehicles with some very powerful engines available as options. Variety was priority in the production of the Fairlane. The exterior paint and trim options were endless and with elaborate cloth woven seat covers choices and a rainbow of paint combinations, the Fairlane was nothing but a variety of options.
