1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner 68507 Miles Black and White Convertible
1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner 68507 Miles Black and White Convertible 312 cubic in
Beautiful restoration, great colors, spectacular interior. Strong-running P-code 312 cubic inch V8 with automatic transmission. Continental kit, power convertible top, twin spotlights. Upgraded radio, radial tires, ready to cruise!

Despite the fanfare surrounding Chevy’s new V8, Ford wasn’t sitting back doing nothing. The Y-block got more powerful and styling—which was all-new in 1955—was refined and allowed Ford to continue out-selling Chevrolet in 1956. The top-of-the-line Fairlane Sunliner convertible was by far their best effort, a great combination of style, flash, and performance. Ties to the dramatic new Thunderbird were obvious and with that sweeping chrome along the flanks, the Fairlane wouldn’t be confused with anything else on the road. Thanks to a comprehensive frame-off restoration a few years ago, this stunning black and white ragtop offers one of the ‘50s best designs in fantastic colors that will always be in style. Of course, Colonial White and Raven Black were on the color charts in 1956, so although it isn’t this car’s original combination, it’s still stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful. Finish quality is excellent and thanks to restoration photos, we know it was taken down to bare metal and rebuilt from there. Gaps are better than most Fords of the era and the car feels robust going down the road, which is hard to achieve. There’s a deep shine to the finish that’s probably better than Ford could offer in 1956 and all the chrome was refinished to add the perfect finishing touch. Add in a continental kit and you get what is arguably Ford’s best cruiser of the 1950s.
