VERY COOL BUILD! GREAT PAINT/COLORS, 302 HO V8, 5 SPEED MANUAL, FRONT DISC, WOW

Wow, when was the last time you saw one of these? 1965 Ford Fairlane 500s aren't exactly common these days, especially not in slick black paint with a matching red-and-black interior. Add a sweet-running, built 302 V8 and a quick-shifting 5-speed manual, and you have a great runner that's bound to generate more than its fair share of double-takes on the street.

We liken the early '60s Fairlanes to the industrial-strength Mopars of the same period: lots of power without a lot of excess baggage and unnecessary fluff. The lines are clean but very subdued, the roofline is formal but stylish, and there's only enough dramatic trim to make a statement. Painting it slick black attracts a lot of attention, but you better get it right because black shows everything. However, the high-end driver-quality finish on this Ford is great with only very light imperfections to speak of, and the bodywork is laser straight, so you won't find any surprises underneath. Put it all together and you see that the look is still pretty darn intimidating. Seriously, if this car rolled up next to you at a light, you'd think twice about punching it when the light turned green; who knows what kind of evil lurks under that ... Please ask for the full description.

VERY COOL BUILD! GREAT PAINT/COLORS, 302 HO V8, 5 SPEED MANUAL, FRONT DISC, WOW

Wow, when was the last time you saw one of these? 1965 Ford Fairlane 500s aren't exactly common these days, especially not in slick black paint with a matching red-and-black interior. Add a sweet-running, built 302 V8 and a quick-shifting 5-speed manual, and you have a great runner that's bound to generate more than its fair share of double-takes on the street.

We liken the early '60s Fairlanes to the industrial-strength Mopars of the same period: lots of power without a lot of excess baggage and unnecessary fluff. The lines are clean but very subdued, the roofline is formal but stylish, and there's only enough dramatic trim to make a statement. Painting it slick black attracts a lot of attention, but you better get it right because black shows everything. However, the high-end driver-quality finish on this Ford is great with only very light imperfections to speak of, and the bodywork is laser straight, so you won't find any surprises underneath. Put it all together and you see that the look is still pretty darn intimidating. Seriously, if this car rolled up next to you at a light, you'd think twice about punching it when the light turned green; who knows what kind of evil lurks under that long hood? Fortunately, there's enough chrome to lighten the mood a bit, and all of it remains in great shape, particularly the angular side trim that matches the forward-canted angle of the roof and is further punctuated with the contrasting red accent strip inside. And we kind of think Chrysler owes Ford an apology, because that concave rear window looks awfully familiar, don't you think?

Personally, we think red-and-black interiors are a great choice no matter what you're driving but they look even better when inside a black car. Flashy but traditional, the vinyl-with-cloth-inserts bench seat setup in this car has a luxurious yet sporty look that matches the car's personality. The seat cover, door panels, headliner, and carpets are all restored pieces that barely show any wear, which is very impressive and downright surprising at this price point. The instrument panel in the dash is original but with the upgraded blasting power under the hood the former owner wanted a better read on the vitals, so a tachometer was strapped to the steering column and a couple auxiliary gauge units were installed underneath the dash. The original AM radio is still in place but due for an upgrade, and aside from a heater, seatbelts, and that killer Hurst cue ball shifter, this car is pretty light on options, so you know it was ordered and built to do just one thing out on the mean streets. The back seat is big enough for three friends (or "ballast" as we used to call them) and with a giant trunk outfitted with a period-correct plaid mat, road trips or excursions to the track don't mean you have to leave essentials behind.

A snarling 302 cubic inch H.O. V8 lives under the hood, and gives the Fairlane the moves of a much younger machine. Borrowed from a Foxbody and then built with a .030 overbore, balanced and completely reworked inside with a roller cam and roller rockers, it has impressive power up and down the throttle. Great low-end torque means it gets out of the hole quickly and the 302's penchant for high-RPM excursions comes via an Edelbrock air-gap intake and Holley 670CFM 4-barrel carb. Brightly polished aluminum valve covers and a chrome air cleaner add some flash, and they're properly badged with '302' script so everyone knows the name of the game. The transmission is a familiar T5 5-speed manual and a 8.8-inch Traction-Lock rear end with 3.50 gears inside and Moser axles means this is a hotrod that can handle all the power. A recent H-pipe dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers sounds fantastic at, say 5000 RPM, and the Cragar Super Star wheels wear 205/65/15 front and 225/70/15 rear blackwall radials that add the perfect performance look.

An unusual, fast, fun cruiser that will have a lot of folks scratching their heads after having their doors blown off. If that sounds like fun, call us today!
