If you're in the market for a monochromatic, relaxed and unpretentious
classic that's stacked with a top option drivetrain and super clean looks,
this awesome Ford is your next car!
Not surprisingly, this super cool Fairlane drove out of Ford's Atlanta
assembly plant at the beginning of the great American performance wars.
After spending a short time as random showroom candy here in Charlotte,
North Carolina, it began a long life of solid maintenance and back road
workout routines. And today, covered in a vivid coat of correct Frost
Turquoise, it sits as the beneficiary of a thorough frame-off restoration
that was conducted on solid, original bones.
Unpin the car's hood and you'll find a big 427 cubic inch V8 that's been
restored to an attractive, road-worthy state. When Dearborn brass decided
to shove these beefy mills into actual R-code mid-sizers, they probably had
a hard time keeping a straight face. After all, what red-blooded car guy
can't help but smile at a combination like this? At full throttle, cool air
flows through a finned, Thunderbird-style air cleaner into a large Holley
4-barrel. Below that carburetor, stock heads prop chrome, "POWER BY Ford"
valve covers next to an aluminum, medium-rise intake and traditional points
distributor. The smooth mill breathes through long-tube headers, which
exhale into aluminized, true-dual Exhaust pipes. And all the while a correct,
"FoMoCo" branded radiator cycles water through pliable hoses and a correct
assortment of clamps.
Behind that hot engine, a road-ready 4-speed proves just as effective as
ever at slinging gears and scorching stoplights. That transmission channels
power to a correct nine inch rear end that's stuffed with highway friendly
gears. Torque meets the pavement through a set of steel, body-matched
wheels which spin modern 205/75R14 Michelins in front of modern 225/75R15
Michelins. The car's suspension remains in stock form with factory control
arms up front and parallel leaf springs out back. There's a rebuilt power
steering system that makes turning easy and parking a cinch. And braking is
an equally smooth process thanks to a combination of power discs and
Between this Fairlane's sizeable doors, a restored turquoise interior
offers the one thing many basic muscle cars didn't -- comfort. While the
bench seats may not look like the lap of luxury at first, a brief stint
behind the car's wheel reveals just how comfortable they really are. The
dash is stock, but a big Sun Super Tac makes it look hotter than other cars
of the day. And in front of the driver, an ornate factory steering wheel
combines with chrome accessory knobs and wood-trimmed door panels to
provide a fresh and appealing driving environment.
If you're looking for a different kind of muscle car, one that places
substance above form, this awesome Ford belongs in your garage. Call, click
