Description

In the days before the Mustang and before the term muscle car had even been coined cars like this 1964 Ford Fairlane hardtop were the go-to choices for the guy who liked having fun behind the wheel. Combining classic Ford looks with a snarky 289 cubic inch V8 it's a fun affordable way to enjoy traditional rear-wheel-drive performance with a Blue Oval flavor. Positioned somewhere between the Falcon and the Galaxie the Fairlane has just the right proportions: big enough to be comfortable but not so big that it dampens performance. Finished in traditional Wimbledon White it has a look that makes every old-school racer think twice before giving it a go at the local track. Next to the convertible the hardtop is by far the most desirable body style and the combination of formality and performance is quite appealing. The finish is extremely nice particularly at this price with a great gloss and straight bodywork that strongly suggests this car has not been abused or wrecked. The white paint is just the right shade not quite refrigerator white but not cream either and with all the factory brightwork still in place it looks like it should cost thousands more than it does. In fact much of the chrome and trim has been recently replaced or restored so it shows well. The basic black interior was standard issue in the Fairlane and for guys more interested in going fast the accommodations were of little consideration. Therefore the original front bench remains in place now covered with a reproduction seat cover that has sharply defined pleats and silver piping for just a little contrast. The fat wood-rimmed steering wheel is the most notable modification to the interior but the modern A/C unit disguised as a period under-dash accessory is a very nice touch. The white-faced gauges are original and in decent shape proving once again that white gauges are far from a recent invention. The factory-issued AM radio is long gone replaced more recently by an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit which powers a set of 6x9 speakers on the rear package shelf. The carpets door panels and headliner are in excellent condition offering additional proof that someone invested in this car all out of proportion to its asking price. Even the trunk is nicely upholstered in black carpet rather than the basic rubber mat. It would be a mistake to underestimate Ford's muscular 289 because in the relatively lightweight Fairlane performance is impressive. An Edelbrock intake and Holley 4-barrel carburetor surely add some ponies to the final count and upgrades like an alternator and power steering make it reliable and comfortable enough to drive every day. Other smart upgrades include front disc brakes a big sway bar and a new dual exhaust system that sounds stock until you really stomp the loud pedal. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission and sturdy 8-inch rear end with 3.00 gears inside (at least according to the door tag) mean that it's equally happy in traffic or on the highway. The undercarriage is surprisingly tidy for a car in this price range and the lowered front end gives it just a bit of an attitude. Stock steel wheels with wire wheel covers are fitted with 215/70/14 white-letter radials that hint at the performance awaiting inside. A very neat old Ford with a lot of performance for not a lot of cash. If you're looking for fun on a budget that's not like everyone else's fun on a budget then this Fairlane deserves a closer look.
