RESTOMOD, CAMMED 289 V8, 4 SPD, CUTOUTS, FOOSE WHEELS, PUSH TO START, ETC, COOL!
Restomods...the absolute best thing about this hobby is the ability to take any kind of car and use it as your personal canvas to make it your own. That's exactly what the owner of this 1966 Ford Fairlane did. Stocked with some of the best hardware and accessories, this Fairlane is poised to turn heads.
1966 saw a redesign for the Ford Fairlane, and this one represents that restyle well with clear, stacked headlights up front above a chrome bumper. The paint is a beautiful blue hue that lays flat on the sheet metal and is worn well by the lines of the car. Besides that paint, the body of this car remains stock, no custom modifications here, just the correct trim and badging with chrome bumpers accenting it all. In fact, the only other noticeable modifications hinting at what this car is are the chrome 17'' Foose wheels that are wrapped in Venezia tires.
Swing open the doors and things get cool as you're greeted by bright blue LED accent lighting mounted underneath the dash. The front buckets are aftermarket and feature latch-type lap belts to keep the driver and passenger restrained. The cloth upholstery covering the entire interior is custom and matches the rear bench seat as well, that also features seat belts to restrain the rear passengers. The black dash remains stock with an AM radio mounted in the factory location. However, there is an oil pressure and water temperature gauge added underneath to keep an eye on the engine, as well as a panel of switches that include the push button start.
When you hit that push button, all of the fun begins as it fires up a 289 cubic inch V8 that is believed to be original to the car. When you hear this Fairlane idle, you could be fooled into thinking it was a 427 under the hood. That 289 beats to the tune of a Comp Cams Thumpr cam shaft and breathes through an Edelbrock air cleaner and pushes air into a Holley Avenger 680 carburetor. Dressed up with Ford Racing valve covers and plug wires, this is just a cool engine bay to look at and you'll want to show it off. Keeping engine temps in check is an aluminum radiator, and the exhaust gasses exit through a pair of Hooker headers. When it's time to take this Ford from light to light, or just to terrorize your neighbors, the dual exhaust system has been fitted with electronic cutouts to free up some power while making an incredible noise in the process. Keep it moderately quiet, or turn it up loud with the Doug's electric cutouts. All of that power travels through a 4-speed manual transmission that turns a rear end with 4.11 gears.
Needless to say, this car is just absolutely fun! It's a car you can enjoyable cruise with, or take it to your local cruise-in and have fun showing it off and turning heads with those loud cutouts. This Fairlane even comes with the original bill of sale and window sticker!! Now is your chance to own a very cool and unique retro mod that will stand out from the crowd. Call today!
