What a sweet little Fairlane this is! Very nicely restored some years ago, and very well presented. The Chestnut paint just pops! Adorned with beautiful bright work throughout the car, this Fairlane is nicely contrasted from the paint to the chrome, to the crisp interior.
This Fairlane, equipped with Fords 289 is nicely balanced with it's C4 automatic, power steering, and excellent brakes, makes for such a nice and easy drive, you'll want to drive it all the time.
An excellent cruising, sharp looking classic car that's fun to drive, and will look great at the car shows and cruise-ins.
The under carriage is clean and dry, and believe it or not...No oil leaks!
This is the perfect car to take to some of those car shows that you would like to go to that are a ways away, or in another town, because this is such a smooth car to drive, you'll want to take it on road trips.
There are a lot of receipts for parts, components, and work performed on the Fairlane to bring it to it's current appealing state.
Obviously a well taken care of classic that's ready for crusin', showing, or...Yes, daily driving!
This Fairlane 500 is very reliable, and with the small V8, you'll be happy with the fuel economy.
What a sweet little Fairlane!
