The Ford Fairlane was a car from Ford Motor Company. The car was made between 1955 and 1970. The name comes off Henry Ford's estate Fair Lane, next to Dearborn, Michigan.

The name meant a number of different cars. The Fairlane was originally a full-sized car; it became a mid-sized car from the 1962 model year on.

In 1957, with the Fairlane, Ford outsold Chevrolet for the first time since 1935. For 1958, it was given quad headlights.
