GREAT CONV, 390 CID V8, AUTO, PWR STEERING, FRONT PWR DISC BRAKES.
When it comes to full-size cruisers from the '60s, a popular choice is a car like this 1966 Ford Fairlane 500 XL. Toss in the convertible top, powerful 390 V8, and head-turning good looks, it's likely that this big red Ford will be enjoying cruise-ins with a new owner in no time.
It's not the factory color to the car, but it's hard to disagree that the vivid red paint that dresses this Fairlane looks absolutely stunning. It's a hue that complements the lines of the car well and gives it some muscle car flare. A black rocker stripe subtly accents the lower portion of the car with a '390' badge placed behind the front tires. Clean chrome bumpers cap the front and rear of the car with 'Ford' badging mounted on the hood and trunk. 'Fairlane' badges sit at each rear quarter panel and a new convertible top keeps passengers protected from the elements. That top goes down with the push of a button and has a taut cover that buttons up nicely for a slick look. Adding a bit more muscular flare is the 17'' American Racing wheels.
Inside is a clean vinyl and cloth interior that makes a good combination with the red paint. The front buckets and rear bench have soft, cloth inserts that present a checkerboard like pattern. There is a stainless trimmed console that is straight and clean. A multi-colored dash sits up front and retains a factory appearance with controls for the A/C, heat, and AM/FM radio, while additional auxiliary gauges measuring volts, oil pressure, and water temperature mounted below. There is also a column mounted tachometer that sits just behind the 3-spoke, wood trimmed steering wheel.
Lift the hood and you're greeted by a beastly looking 390 cubic inch V8. It doesn't take long to notice that this 390 has been beefed up with some high performance goodies including 427 heads, a 4 barrel 750cfm Edelbrock carburetor, an Edelbrock intake manifold, MSD ignition box, MSD distributer, and an MSD Blaster 2 coil. Power travels to a 3-speed automatic transmission that turns a Ford 9'' rear end with 3.00 gears. The engine and transmission have less than 20K miles on them, so you can be confident in long lasting reliability out of the drive train. There is a Borgeson power steering box to help with driving duties and power brakes with discs up front help with stopping duties. And 215/55/17 front and 235/55/17 rear Falken tires put it all to the road.
This '66 Ford Fairlane 500XL is priced right for a solid weekend cruiser that has the right hardware to make you smile. It's a complete package for an enthusiast that wants convertible appeal, muscle car attitude, and air conditioned comfort. Call today!
