Getting My 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 Ready for Its First Car Show!
My girlfriend Christal decided to make her first video ever for youtube! :D This was filmed at the end of summer this year before it was time to head back to pharmacy school. Got caught in a little rain at the end but it was an awesome time! She showed a lot of the processes I took before and during the actual show as well as some of the things I was replacing and installing at the time. I've done SO MUCH MORE stuff to it since, it's almost done being restored to my standards and I can't wait to show you all the final product!!! Hope you all enjoy this personal video of ours and stay tuned for more fairlane updates!!

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.
