The early 1960s were a great decade for automobiles. Most car manufacturers were beginning to mass produce very reliable vehicles and compete more directly with each other. Amongst these vehicles was this 1962 Ford Fairlane. This Fords body design was made so that it was roughly 16in longer than the Ford Falcon and about 12 inches shorter than the Galaxie. This was to bridge the gap between the Falcon and Galaxie, and also to compete for GMs A Body Senior Compacts. This Ford Fairlane has a 221 V8 engine, and this engine was brand new for Ford in 1962. It was designed using thin wall casting which made it 90lb lighter than the small block Chevy engines. This Fairlane also has an Automatic Transmission, which allows for easy driving, and a smooth ride. It has had a nut and bolt restoration and looks as good as it did coming off the assembly line. With very low mileage, only 30,585. It has a very reasonable price of $23,988 and considering the condition of the vehicle and how well it runs, it would be an excellent investment. Not to mention the enjoyment you would receive from driving this piece of Fords history!

One of the greatest tricks of marketing automobiles, or anything else for that matter, is creating demand for something that people didn’t know they wanted.
