NOTE  Ford did not use the "Skyliner" name for the 1955 Fairlane Crown Victoria Transparent Top car, as it did previously for the 1954 Crestline Skyliner and afterward for the 1956 Fairlane Crown Victoria Slyliner. The 1955 Owner's Manual states "Crown Victoria Transparent Top." The Transparent Top was a +$69.49 option on the Crown Victoria (Body Type 64A) that then made the Crown Victoria Transparent Top (Body Type 64B). Dealerships abbreviated the term to T/T or T/P. Crown Victoria Transparent Top car prices include the top.

Specific Sunliner Style-Tone Two-Tone Colors have not been found by this editor, but it is apparent that most of the  Style-Tone Two-Tone Colors  were used. Somewhat unique to the Sunliner is that the two colors were applied as typical with the (first) darker color below the bodyside molding & the (second) lighter color above, or in reversed order with the lighter color below the molding & darker above.  NOTE  Some U.S. plants started the year w/ Conv Two-Tone Colors, and later introduced Style-Tone Two-Tone Colors.
