DESCRIPTION

This 1968 Ford Fairlane 500 is a legacy kind of car. It's a sedan with a high degree of originality, right down to the finish. It makes for the kind of cool-cruising V8 sedan we don't see too often anymore.



The 1968 car was one of our favorites. Ford has given its intermediate sedans a more substantial presence a couple of years prior, and then they refreshed it for '68 with horizontal quad headlights that made these look even wider. The body design had a bit more of a kick-up at the rear, which gave it a sportier personality. Overall, this Fairlane was arguably one of Ford's most attractive designs of the 1960s, because it offered an elegant simplicity that had a hint of European influence. And this legendary Ford design was also finished in a legendary Ford color: Wimbledon White. This is believed to be the original application, and the shine it retains is quite amazing for over a half-century later. It's got all the best classic pieces, like wraparound chrome bumpers, factory wheel covers, and even the dealer ID on the trunk lid. Plus, the full-length trim has a distinct red insert for added stylish flair.



The black interior has a tasteful look against the white exterior, and the red floor mats are a nice little touch to go with the exterior accenting. The presentation is highly original, and it has the right comfort to comfortably fit family and friends in this sedan. Plus, the higher trim on the 500 series means some great wood applique and stylish trim on the seats. And there are great classic features like the working Philco AM radio and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The classic steering wheel has an artful style, and we especially like the look of the gauges. Those round pods give us another little hint of European influence.



This sedan was optioned with Ford's F-code 302 cubic-inch V8 motor. It has such an honest presentation today that we have no trouble believing this could be the original powerplant. And when you add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and modern cruising tires, you get the right kind of classic that upholds a sedan's expectations for an easy driving experience.



This Fairlane is a very vintage package that also keeps a ton of modern appeal. Are you ready to carry on its legacy? Call today!!!
