HIGHLIGHTS: Mild custom that will catch you off guard! Kept largely
true to original form, tasteful upgrades include Ford 428 V8, Ford
C6 automatic transmission, and front disc brakes!
BODY OVERVIEW: A fairly recent restoration, the body on this
Fairlane is very nice as this car properly disassembled and
restored. An old photo album in the trunk shows that this car was
taken apart, and a restoration began. The body and trim have been
kept in original style and look great!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: One sure sign of a recent restoration is
paint condition. Older restorations will eventually show normal
signs of use, such as nicks, scratches, etc. but this car looks
almost as if it was painted last week!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior condition is very similar
to the paint condition in that the majority of it looks fantastic,
though some original components were reused. While these components
are in good condition, they do show some aging in comparison to new
items such as the seat covers.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The 428 V8 not only gives this car plenty of
power, but it also gives this car a bit of a surprise for anyone
unsuspecting. From the exterior, this car is very subtle, but it's
a runner! This Fairlane sounds great, and the 428 simply purrs
through a set of dual glasspack mufflers. The front disc brakes are
a welcome upgrade, and although it does not have power brakes this
puppy can really stop!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The fact that it retained all of
its original design elements, but is hiding a healthy amount of
power under the hood.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If sleek and subtle is not for
you, this car may not be a good choice. Additionally, this car does
not have power steering which can be a turn-off for some
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Although you could be cruising this car
tomorrow, it does have some minor items that are not operational
including the horn and wipers. Additionally, a radio antenna was
not installed after paint.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Someone looking to relive their
1960s/1970s teenage experiences in a car that is prettied up and
