Ford Fairlanes Being Built
Inside the factory where the fourth generations of Ford Fairlanes are being
built. Probably at the Lorain, Ohio assembly plant. Welding, and lead
applied to round out the curves. They're painted, the engines installed,
glass goes one, water tested, headlights aimed and out to the car hauler
they go. We see a well dressed couple looking at a Fairlane.
he Fairlane name was moved to Ford's new intermediate, introduced for the
1962 model year, to bridge the gap between the compact Ford Falcon and the
full-sized Galaxie, making it a competitor for GM's A-body 'senior
compacts'. With an overall length of 197 in (5004 mm) and a wheelbase of
115.5 in (2934 mm), it was 16 in (406 mm) longer than the Falcon and 12.3
in (312 mm) shorter than the Galaxie.
Like the Falcon, the Fairlane had a unibody frame, but the body
incorporated an unusual feature Ford dubbed 'torque boxes', four boxed
structures in the lower body structure designed to absorb road shock by
moving slightly in the vertical plane. Suspension was a conventional
short-long arm independent arrangement in front, with Hotchkiss drive in
the rear. The Fairlane was initially offered only in two-door or four-door
sedan body styles.
1962 Lincoln and Thunderbird Being Built
A visit to the factory while the 1962 Lincoln Continental (suicide doors)
and the Thunderbird are being built. See the whole process from body
parts being welded together, glass put on, paint applied and the cars
rolling off the line and on to a transport to the dealers. This is how the
middle class was born, making things.
