Apart from the engine changes, customers were sure to notice the new "Fairlane", which replaced the Crestline as the top trim level, while a new "Crown Victoria"
style featured a chrome "basket handle" across the familiar (and
continued) "Victoria" hardtop roof, which originally appeared on the Mercury XM-800
concept car. This use of a styling feature to visually separate the
front of the passenger compartment from the rear reappeared on the
1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird, the Ford Fairmont Futura and Mercury Zephyr
Z-7 coupes. The company now boasted three different rooflines, the tall
two-pillar Mainline, Customline, and Fairlane, lower chrome-pillar
Crown Victoria, and pillarless hardtop Victoria. The "Skyliner" acrylic glass roof was still offered, this time only on the Crown Victoria model.
The Fords introduced for 1955 also featured the panoramic windshields found on Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Cadillacs
the previous year. With this panoramic windshield the A-pillars have a
vertical angle. this gives the driver more panoramic visibility.
For the first time, Ford offered seat belts as an option. Also new for 1955 was Ford's first factory installed air conditioner.
This “Select Aire” option featured an integrated heater core and
evaporator coil unit within the dash and cold air discharge vents
located on top of the dash  on either side of the radio speaker. The "Select Aire" design was carried over to the 1956 models 
with slightly different cold air vents in the same location as on the
1955 models. The condenser was mounted in front of the radiator as in
Station wagons were offered as a separate series for the first time in 1955.:p 395 The Ranch Wagon and Custom Ranch Wagon were 2 door wagons whilst the Country Sedan and Country Squire models were 4 doors wagons, the latter featuring wooden appliqué side mouldings. :pp 394-395

The eggcrate grille featured on the 1955 cars was widened into a
series of rectangles for 1956, but this subtle exterior change was
nothing compared to Ford's adoption of a 12-volt electrical system
across the line. The Crown Victoria Skyliner's
sales were plummeting with just 603 made, and it would be replaced by a
convertible the next year. A new addition at midyear was the "Town
Victoria" 4-door hardtop model which, along with the new Customline
2-door hardtop, were meant to compete with the Chevrolet Bel Air.
safety package — consisting of seat belts, a padded dashboard and a
breakaway rearview mirror — was introduced. The option was a
slow-seller. The optional air conditioner, which remained expensive and
thus a slow seller, was totally revamped; the compressor was now housed
beneath the hood and the cooling vents were moved to atop the dashboard.
