Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is thrilled to present this 1966
Ford Fairlane GT for sale.Two time first place award winner at the
highly acclaimed Autorama in Detroit. This Blindingly HOT, this
beautifully restored and hot very tastefully hot rodded Fairlane is
an example of the Fifth generation of this Ford model. The Fairlane
was revised in 1966. The appearance was changed to match the
full-sized Ford, which had been restyled in the 1965 model year.
The front end featured vertically stacked dual headlights. The XL,
GT, and GTA packages were introduced, as well as a convertible to
join the existing range of sedans, hardtops, and station wagons.
This GT featured a 390 CID V8 as standard, but as you walk towards
this not so subtle yellow beast, you notice some serious
enhancements, like the 428 cobra jet emblems on the flared hood
scoop and the sweet backswept side exhaust pipes just ahead of the
wide section rear tires which shroud gorgeous period correct alloy
wheels. Come around to the driver side and open the door and you
will notice a fine example of a civilized beast as your gaze rests
upon the Sport Comp RPM gauge with Shift light hugging the steering
column behind a beautifully preserved original Fairlane wood rimmed
steering wheel, while further in the interior lies an all business
Hurst shift handle and reverse lockout lever, which will allow you
to control a very strong Borg Warner 4 speed manual transmission
with a 4:11 gear ratio leading to a bullet proof Ford 9inch rear
end. Touches of class like the new carpeting and super comfortable
front bucket seats contrast nicely with the Fire Extinguisher lying
between them and painted to match the exterior color of this
beastly beauty of a Fairlane, and make you want to explore what is
underneath the hood, where you will find a beautifully detailed and
pared down engine bay, highlighting that burly 428 Cobra jet engine
which is at the heart of this amazing car. This 1966 Ford Fairlane
GT is in our Detroit Showroom and can be seen in greater detail
including 100+ HD pictures and a Full HD video at
