Ford first debuted its top-of-the-line Crown Victoria back in 1955. The dazzling new addition to its lineup included a bright chrome “Tiara” that accompanied the nameplate. It’s safe to say that it was an instant success and became one of the most iconic Ford designs of all time.
This model features a vibrant factory Torch Red and Snowshoe white exterior with matching interior and exterior accents throughout. Privately owned for over 40 years, this Fairlane Crown Victoria is in immaculate condition. The paint job appears to be in excellent condition and is complemented by the fender skirts and new wide Whitewall tires. This model sports a dual exhaust with dual mirrors, a dual antenna, and rare original rear-view mirror. It’s also equipped with the Continental kit spare tire holder.
