This is a strong running and driveable Fairlane with a 390 4V backed by a C6 and 9 inch "Traction-Lok" differential. The car does not have any rust issues and has no excessive chips or scratches in the paint. It's a clean and presentable driver.
Drivetrain was swapped out of a 1967 Galaxie and rebuilt by local shops in the 1990's. Invoices are available for this work. The GT hood is neat, but also not original. Nice re-upholstery job on the original seats without tears or visible wear.
No power steering or AC--Factory front disk brakes, but entire braking system should be checked over before serious driving--like new tires and torq-thrust rims--Clean title and current OR tags.
