Vehicle Description

1965 Ford Fairlane Sport Coupe

In the mid 60s the term full-size meant "FULL"size and mid-sized meant not as big, and that's where the Ford Fairlane fit into the lineup. Not so big as to require a harbor pilot's license to guide it down the street but big enough to put a few friends in it and enjoy a drive-in movie. Not including those in the trunk. To spice things up the powers that be at Ford created the Sport Coupe trim package to compliment the sleek lines of the sheet metal which included a full console with floor shift and bucket seats. This one is powered by the correct C Code 200 horse 289 V-8 Engine and a Cruise-O-Matic transmission with said console and floor shifter. The true beauty of this one is the word "Original", Yes this is an unrestored 2 owner car with 31000 miles and "the original" paint and interior. Other than the typical wear items that you have to replace just to keep it drive-able, such as brakes, hoses, belts, the only alteration to original are the wheels and tires...oh yea the lighted up cat in the rear window would be optional. This is one is a nicely optioned with the original engine along with it being in a great color combination. The 2 barrel 289 runs smooth and has complete correct single exhaust system. Finished in correct Rangoon Red with White roof and complimenting Red and White interior it looks great too. We left this one original in that we did not detail the engine bay or the underside. It isn't as pretty under the hood as most we sell but we figured being a two owner original car why mess with it.


The word "Original" gets batted around a lot in this business but they don't come much more "original" than this one

It comes with full owner history, which isn't hard since there have only been two
