1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969
Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago,
and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural
rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't
want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another
similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could
replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis
from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we
decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car,
including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass.
We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that
we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and
drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and
substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it
used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell
people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated"
by another Fairlane sedan!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you
think! Thanks for watching!

Ford Fairlane Ranch Wagon Drag Race Hot Rod Drag Week
Here is a Ford Fairlane Ranch Wagon drag racing another Fairlane. This is a
very cool car, it has a 5.4 liter pro-charged engine under the hood. This
beast is very unassuming, it looks like just a regular street car, until it
lays down an 11-second pass down the 1320 that is. The video was shot with
a GoPro Hero HD
1965 Ford Fairlane 500 289 2-door 3-spd Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Review, and Test Drive
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at my 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 289. This particular model is known as
the 2 door sedan due to the tall roofline and b-pillar, also known as a
post car. I purchased this car in February 2011 with the dream of being
able to fix up a car, restore it, and bring back to the original factory
look. I'm a huge fan of classic cars and always have been. My grandfather
"papa" instilled this in me a long time ago, as did my dad when he restored
papa's '48 ford 2 door sedan back when I was little. This car is about 90%
original and numbers matching with the original 289 cubic inch V8 (4.7L)
and the original 3 speed manual on the column. It has an custom dual Exhaust (not sure what kind as it was
already on the car when I bought it), not to mention original wheels,
chrome, door panels, headliner, etc. I bought many items for this car
because I wanted to "option it out" since it was a more "basic" fairlane
500. I will explain EVERY LITTLE detail about the car that you were
curious about and probably more than you cared to know hahaha. I basically
wanted to make this car look as it did from rolling out of the showroom, I
collected original keys, documentation, brochures, an owner's manual and
much more! I DO have the original video of this car when I first got it,
before I did ANYTHING to it here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SIbQCRt7Qw This video has been more than a
year in the making and has taken a couple months to edit and get everything
together, a ton of love and pride went into it! I hope everyone enjoys!!!!
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!
