Yes, it is possible.  You can accomplish what you describe by adding the
following option to the Input cell that is to generate the InputForm
output.

CommonDefaultFormatTypes->{"Output"->InputForm}

This can be done from the front end's Option Inspector dialog when its
scope indicator is set to "selection".
