The 1955 Fords shared the same basic central body structure a the 1954 Ford. New features included Thunderbird inspired tailfins, wrap around windshield, forward leaning headlight bezels and body side trim. The new trim lent itself to attractive two tone paint on all 1955 Fords.

The mid-level Customline and the basic low priced Mainline body styles remained in the 55 Ford line up.

The high dollar Crestline body style was replace with the equally high dollar Fairlane name plate. The Fair Lane was the name of Henry Ford's estate in Dearborn, Michigan.
