Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is thrilled to present this 1966
Ford Fairlane GT for sale, a two-time first place award winner at
the highly acclaimed Autorama in Detroit. This blindingly HOT,
beautifully restored and hot very tastefully 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. This GT featured a 390
CI V8 as standard equipment, 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 side exit
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.
