Following introduction of the all-new “Y-Block” V-8 engine for 1954, the 1955 Ford models were completely redesigned with longer, lower and wider bodies, two-tone finishes, distinctive brightwork and striking interiors. The front grille was given an updated look; the Fairlane also featured “eyebrows” above the headlamps and chrome side-sweep moldings. Some Ford models received the “glass roof” and it was an immediate hit in the showrooms.
