Fairlane 1964

A classic FoMoCo performance look and a bargain price make this 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Sport Coupe a great opportunity to get into the classic car hobby with a bang. It's a small block 260 V8 car, and with a blacked-out livery and bucket seat interior, it's a bit sportier than your average '60s cruiser. And at this competitive price, you really have nothing to lose.

If you're going for style points in a '60s Ford, Raven Black is a classic choice for vintage Ford muscle. Along with Wimbledon White, it's the quintessential Ford Fairlane (and Galaxie for that matter) color and while this car isn't trying to be another Thunderbolt clone, it's hard to miss the association when you see it in person. Despite the car's survivor-style setup, it wears a relatively fresh repaint that's actually so darn nice it almost runs counter to the Fairlane's blue-collar pedigree. This is a '500 Sport Coupe', so it's one of the better designs of the early '60s, and keeping it original Code A Raven Black was the right decision. Not a show car, nor would we want it to be, but the curb appeal is sky high on this strong, driver-quality hauler. By the looks of the straight body, exacting panels, and precise gaps, it doesn't look like this car has ever been rusty or banged up, and the doors fit well, as do the hood and trunk, suggesting that perhaps it has never been fully disassembled. You could buy it today to enjoy and perhaps buff-and-wax it to kick it back up a notch, but we're guessing that you'll be having too much fun to worry too much. You'll note the ample side trim with black inserts on the profiles, the ornate hood and fender accents, sophisticated-looking black vinyl roof, and the bright tail panel that all add to the slick overall look of this 500. Add in that iconic grille and headlight setup up front, Ford's jet-inspired taillights, and the big, chrome bumpers at the endcaps and you've got yourself one good looking car.

The white interior is a nice change from red or black, and buckets in a Fairlane are rather rare. Like the bodywork, it's a combination of original and replacement stuff, but it looks very nice overall inside and the white upholstery is a perfect complement to the Raven Black exterior. The seat covers are in great shape both front and rear, the door panels at the flanks are likely original (sans the paint up top and carpeting on the bottom), and the plush black carpets that line the floors look great and insulate the cabin from the outside world. The original dash is slightly warped, but a carpeted pad covers it for the most part, and although the factory center console is more of a Parchment color (likely because it's original), but it's a welcomed option nonetheless. Factory gauges have white faces, so they have a somewhat modern look in their cool individual binnacles, and they've been augmented with a trio of auxiliary units under the dash. Further aftermarket pieces include the Grant Gt steering wheel at the helm of the cockpit, along with an older Panasonic AM/FM/Cassette head unit that supplements the factory AM radio in the dash. As a full-sized car, there's a big back seat with plenty of room for friends and family and it's in quite good shape overall, and you also get a truly massive trunk that's equipped with an original mat and spare tire/jack set.

Any Ford with a small block is going to be fun to drive, and the believed original F-code 260 V8 under the hood of this Fairlane certainly qualifies. The neatly dressed small block wears an upgraded Holley 4-barrel up top, an aluminum intake manifold, some chrome valve covers, and a Moroso open-element air cleaner, so fans of '60s performance should see things that are familiar. It starts easily and runs well, and it's nice to see authentic details like the generator making electricity and the original FoMoCo overflow bag still in place. The transmission is a believed-original 2-speed Ford-O-Matic feeding a 9-inch rear end with 3.08 gear inside (this is a full-sized Ford, after all), and the exhaust uses chambered mufflers to give it that authentic '60s soundtrack. The suspension remains largely stock and featured newer shocks in the rear, so it has that comfortable big car ride and a set of 14-inch Sendel alloy bullet-hole wheels with blackwall radials give it the perfect period performance look.

This is not a show car or a trailer queen, you've gathered that. But it's an honest Fairlane 500 with a killer cool old-school look, is turn-key ready, and has strong V8 power under the hood. Call now!
