This 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 is for sale in our Indianapolis Showroom. This car can transport you back to the end of the Jet-Age design era for automobile history, and it will do it in style. The 63 Fairlane was a closer to a shrunken down Galaxie than anything else. The front end was a spitting image of the Galaxie while the rear retained the small tailfins giving it a unique look. This example is extremely nice and with the modifications it has can be driven daily in comfort. The body is straight, with no signs of filler a magnet will stick no matter where you put it. The paint was laid on with a precision touch giving the car a show quality finish. Under the hood is a 351W that has been built using some high-end components. Starting with a comp roller cam and a set of Hi Po heads, this 351 sings at higher RPM's. The Weiand intake and Holley 650-barrel feed the setup a perfect mixture of gas and air giving this 351 a good amount of power. Hooked up to a Tremec 5 speed you now have that extra gear for when your running down the interstate. The rear end is a sturdy 8.8 with 31 spline axles making it durable enough for this setup. The Cal-Trac setup eliminates any worries of wheel hop with the chromoly frame ties there just in case. The Fatman Mustang II style front end keeps the car nice and straight during those straight-line cruises while making those back-country roads a blast to carve up. The 4-wheel disc setup allows for much better pedal feel not to mention cutting the distance in probably half. The interior of the car is comfortable and with the addition of AC and heat this truly is a car you can use all year round. If you have been thinking about getting a great classic that is not quite your mainstream car but still unbelievably cool this 63 Fairlane is the car for you. Options on this 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 include, AC, AM Radio, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, and a set of Custom Wheels Wrapped with Radial tires.
