Muscle Car Of The Week Video #56: 1966 Ford Fairlane 427 Lightweight
What happens when you mix a lightweight body with a high-powered 427?   Ford set out to find out with this 1966 Fairlane, and the results were awesome.    This Fairlane does not look like anything special, being completely devoid of racy looking stripes or fancy trim, but the giveaway is the scooped lift-off hood and the discreet 427 badges on the fenders.    This car is boasting lightweight aluminum and fiberglass panels from front to back, and has been assembled without creature comforts inside.   However, it was fitted with the R-Code dual 4-barrel side-oiler 427, a 425 HP race engine for the street.     The R-Code rumbles thanks to the high compression pistons and lumpy cam, and the 4-speed manual box and 3.89 gears help it get out of the hole.    Which is what this car was designed to do, in the form of Super Stock drag racing.   Ford only built 57 of these in 1966, and this one lives among many other unique and low-production factory racers in the Brothers Collection.
