REAL S-CODE 390 GTA, CORRECT COLORS, BUCKET SEATS, SOLID CAR, MID 60'S MUSCLE!
Packing a 390 cubic inch V8, this 1966 Ford Fairlane GTA was one of the nastiest, fastest Fords on the road in 1966 and you'd better believe it still makes a stir today. But more than just a big block brute, you'll marvel at the level of originality and care that has gone into this family-friendly fast Ford.
You're looking at the face of Ford racing in the '60, and this coupe carries it perfectly. The factory-correct code 8 Springtime Yellow is understated in many situations, but thanks to a respray it really pops in the sunlight. The triple rocker stripe, GT fender badges, 390 callouts on the hood trim, and Ford branded Mag wheels are all reminders of how the GTA took no prisoners on the streets. But it also is still a premium Fairlane at heart. So you get the hardtop coupe body with the bright wide bumpers and the shining grille as long as the horizon. This is really the gentleman's hot rod that could pound the strip on Sunday and commute in rush-hour traffic Monday morning.
The Fairlane GTA's upscale mission is particularly evident inside with handsome stitching on the bucket seats, a center console, and lots of chrome on the instrument panel. There's plenty of room in the back seat, and the spacious trunk will carry enough luggage to go coast-to-coast. The large horizontal speedometer is bright and clear, and to supplement it, a set of auxiliary dials watching voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature was fitted underneath. The steering wheel is a beautiful piece of performance art that just begs for a set of vintage driving gloves to be wrapped around its rim. There's even an interesting upgrade to an AM/FM 8-track stereo, but we really know you're favorite soundtrack comes from the rumble that starts under the hood.
Performance is impressive thanks to the correctly detailed 390 cubic-inch V8 that fills the engine bay. A numbers-matching confirmation is near impossible with a Ford of this era, but it is a correct S-code motor with the four-barrel carburetor. That produced a true wallop of power advertised at 335 hp. This one has resisted the urge to add a bunch of aftermarket parts, so it still looks quite stock. It has just the perfect amount of flash on the valve covers and air cleaner with 390 sticker. Remember the "A" in GTA is for the automatic transmission. Ford's Sport Shift Cruise-O-Matic three-speed is great at providing comfort during the everyday situations and stout enough to handle the full power when you're ready to unleash the monster motor. The same goes for the durable Ford 9-inch rear with 3.25 gears Traction-Lok limited slip differential.
Beautiful, comfortable, and wicked fast, this Fairlane GTA is everything you'd expect from Ford's race-bred mid-size. This is turnkey rapid family transit that we know is going quickly. Call today!!!
