For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/78ya2q8 Customs are renowned for their use of color and special paints, and this lovely Fairlane is no exception. It's brilliant silver pearl with candy purple, and the difference between these colors and those you'd find on a production car is remarkable. Of course, cool paint will only get you so far if the bodywork isn't properly done, so every panel on this car was sanded, buffed, and massaged until it was laser-straight. And with all that bright trim, there's nowhere for misaligned panels to hide. Like any great custom, the modifications are so subtle and well-executed, it's almost impossible to tell where the changes are, because it looks so factory. Everything is crisp and beautifully blended, and you'll need a stock Fairlane next to this one to see all the modifications. While the original Y-block V8 was no slouch in the horsepower department, this custom is now powered by a healthy 351 cubic inch Windsor V8. Dressed in bright Ford Blue, the engine bay is tidy and easy to service, and a nice compromise between flashy upgrades and OEM equipment. There's chrome on the air cleaner and valve covers, which is pretty much standard equipment in any modified car these days, but to keep it reliable, all the original Ford mechanicals remain in place. The transmission is a C6 3-speed automatic turning the Fairlane's original live rear axle. In fact, aside from modern tube shocks, the suspension and steering systems remain 100% original. The original frame and floors have been undercoated to control heat and noise, and the 351 exhales through a pair of cherry bomb mufflers that were the only choice if you were a hot rodder in the 1950s. Traditionalists will be pleased to see that it rolls on color-matched steel wheels with spinner wheel covers and vintage-looking Coker Classic wide whitewall bias-ply tires. The interior is nicely finished in matching silver and purple fabrics, and it's very tastefully done. With pleated seats, slick cloth and vinyl door panels, and a dashboard painted to match the body, it's the perfect complement to the body. All the original gauges have been retained and remain fully functional, with a trio of auxiliary gauges installed in their own panel under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash in a nod to originality and authenticity, with a modern AM/FM/CD head unit right below it so nothing had to be cut or modified. You'll also find that the carpets have been expertly trimmed, with a heel pad for the driver and matching binding on the edges, including around the custom shifter housing. True customs are all about appearances, and the beautifully finished bodywork on this Fairlane is a tribute to the early pioneers of metalworking and paint technology, who were often years and years ahead of the OEMs. With all the right period touches, this is a car that will make guys who were there smile, and create a whole new generation of custom car fans who understand that how a car looks is just as important as how it runs. If you're one of those guys, get in touch today, because this car is a lot of traditional fun for not a lot of money. Call now!
