1960 Ford Fairlane
The bigger, longer and heavier 1960 Ford Fairlane

1960 Ford Fairlane

Redesigned from the ground up for 1960, the Ford Fairlane was six inches longer, almost five inches wider, and almost 200 pounds heavier. Smooth styling with a sloped hood, simple grille, straight A-pillars, clean chrome-edged fender lines, and modest horizontal tail-fin offered a more clean and simple look. The Fairlane series was the base trim level for 1960, the Sunliner returned, but the new Starliner was the big news, which included a pillarless semi-fastback two-door hardtop.
