It's not too often the we see cool-cruising sedans anymore, and so
this 1962 Ford Fairlane 500 is the sleek and complete boulevard
machine that's pure nostalgia. And road trips in this one will be
cooler than those old family journeys thanks to the A/C
This Fairlane has all the right classic elements represented nicely
with pieces like the dual fender ornaments, rear fender skirts, and
jet-inspired taillights. And the chrome bumpers were refreshed to
have a great shine. The chestnut color has the right kind of tone
for a classic car that also wants to be seen in modern times. And
because the sedans were so long, we love the stretched details,
like the full-length trim, rear fender portholes, and that awesome
kick-up in the rear door the begins the last hint of tailfin we
were ever going to see on a Ford. It really has a true classic
style, right down to the wheels. Just check out the two-piece trim
with cool old Ford lettering and the color-matched steel wheel
The interior has been restored to feel fresh. The upgraded white is
clean and striking on the seats, door panels, and the full
headliner. It joins the exterior color on the door tops and dash
for uniform feeling. The wide benches and big '60s-style legroom
means this is a true cruiser. There's even tinted windows and
cold-blowing air conditioning so that sunny Sunday cruises in the
summer won't feel like a sweat lodge. There's even an AM/FM radio
with modern Bluetooth for upgraded driving music.
More of the classic car honesty awaits under the hood. This 221
cubic-inch V8 is a year-correct motor that's believed to be
original to the car. The bold blue block, valve covers, and air
topper suggest a solid investment in the motor, and the way it runs
reaffirms the right care and maintenance has gone into this one. As
a true classic, this one is built to give you the feeling of the
road, but there are also the right easy cruiser features, like the
two-speed automatic transmission and modern touring tires.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a very vintage package that
has also been given all the right investments to make sure you want
to drive this classic Ford. So if you're looking for the best
nostalgia on wheels, you know you don't want to miss this deal.
