The Fairlane was a mid to large sized family car offered by the American automaker Ford, between the years of 1955 to 1970. For years it was the largest car offered by Ford. It represented the “E” (executive cars) market segment. It was offered as a 4-door sedan, hardtop coupe, fastback coupe, convertible, and station wagon. All had the stainless-steel “Fairlane stripe” down the side.
A version appreciated by collectors is the 7th generation Fairlane 500, mid-sized version made only in 1970. In that year it was offered as a 2-Door Hardtop, 4-Door Sedan and Wagon.
