1965 Ford FairlaneThis 1965 Ford Fairlane is a beautiful survivor that would make any FoMoCo car owner proud. Originally fromVermont, he car has an owner confirmed 22,655 miles. Car has been garage kept for the past 4 years, raveling fromVermontto Illinois within its past 3 owners. It drives on a 6 cylinder 200 C.I.D. engine, aired to a 3-speed "Cruise-O-Matic." The Fairlane 500 was the top trim of the available Fairlanes, nd that is what your are observing here.
In this ownership of the car, nly one mechanical partwas sorted (all professionally) to ensure a great driving experience. A new clutch was installed a month or so ago, long with a reworked flywheelresurfaced by a specialist in Chicago.Otherwise the car was not touched in any way. The previous owner had the paint refurbished, s well as replaced some of the exterior trim. A modern radio was put in place of the ashtray, nd the rear shelf was removed and cut toaccommodatethe speakers for the radio. Otherwise, he car is fully original in every aspect.
As with any Ford car this old, here are a few parts that have been worn and need replacing, ut those are mostly interior parts. Most notably are the armrests and slight cuts in the Vinyl seats and headliner. These are all small and can be fixed with a vinyl repair kit. The plastic handle on the parking brake also needs a replacement. Exterior-wise, Fairlane hood emblem needs to be put on. Otherwise, he car has everything it needs to look like it came from the factory. Inregardsto rust, here is slight surface rust on the bumpers, nd there is a small hole on the trunk floor, ut that is a common spot of rust on these cars because of the wiring design from Ford themselves. The metal around it is otherwise sturdy, nd the rust is not developing. The clutch is at the end of its life-cycle, nd may need to be replaced soon. The car did not come with a title from Vermont (Titles are not needed for older vehicles in that state), o I do not have one.Regardless, his car is fully registered in Illinois as an antique road-going vehicle.
Whether your looking to display a surviving Fairlane, r looking for the easiest restoration project you can find on eBay, his car is a great buy for those who appreciate American classics. You will get lots of attention and appreciation for keeping it on the road, s shown by personal experience of owning it. Our house has run out of room for cars to properly store this classic for winter, nd tuition money is needed for upcoming semesters. If your looking for a classic that is about as original as a car can get, his is the one.
