Tons of originality with some great performance and comfort upgrades are reasons why your brain wants this 1966 Ford Fairlane. Which is a good thing, because the shining bright red on this hardtop body already had your heart sold on this coupe.
You're looking at the face of Ford racing in the '60, and this coupe carries it perfectly. The luster in this red really pops in the sunlight, along with the bright wide bumpers and the shining grille as long as the horizon. It all helps to highlight how straight the body panels are and how crisp the creases remain today. You especially notice it on the full sweeping side trim on this Fairlane 500 model that appears as an unbroken line. Plus, the 289 callouts on the fenders and period-correct Ford GT wheels makes for nice intimidation to go with the style. In total, this is really the gentleman's hot rod that could pound the strip on Sunday, and commute in rush-hour traffic Monday morning.
The Fairlane 500's upscale mission is particularly evident inside with a handsome pattern on the bucket seats, coordinating door cards, and lots of chrome on the instrument panel. There's plenty of room in the back seat, and the spacious trunk will carry enough luggage to go coast-to-coast. And that's exactly how you should view this coupe, because it is useful for all occasions. The interior was redone about five years ago, and at the time not only was the upholstery updated, but also some great features were added that everyone will love. This includes an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold blowing air conditioning. But even when you're all alone, this is a great vintage cruiser. You'll grab the three-spoke wood and chrome steering wheel, gaze at the extra-wide speedometer, and twist the key to hear a serious roar as the dual exhaust announces the enhanced V8 to the world.
The 289 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be the original powerplant to this coupe. But one glance in the bay, and you can see that there have been some nice upgrades to it. The polished valve covers, air cleaner, pulleys, brackets and so much more are all joined by the tidy wires and hoses for a stellar total presentation. And when you look beyond the style, there's the serious performance substance of a new cam .532 lift, roller rockers, bored .030 over kit (likely), Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Holley Contender intake, and long tube headers. More than just a big power motor, the whole package is designed to be a great cruising classic. That's why you have features like a stout three-speed automatic transmission, a rebuilt independent front suspension, and an aluminum radiator that keeps this Fairlane cool even in traffic with the A/C running.
Complete with all the right materials, including receipts, maintenance records, owner's manual, and a full-sized spare on the GT wheel, this is everything you love about a classic American coupe in a quality package. And it's available today to the first one who grabs this deal. Call today!!
