800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 was a unique style for this year. And it only gets better on a rarely-seen Sports Coupe with V8 power and a classic cruiser feeling.
The 1965 Fairlane 500 holds a special place in the classic car world. They were revised for 1965, and the tall/sharp fenders, flatter front end, tall grille, and quad headlights made this intermediate-sized Ford look like the close sibling of the full-size Chrysler Imperial - especially when in premium Fairlane 500 trim. The hardtop roof has a formal yet sporty style that feels right on a classic like this. What is especially alluring about this one is its potential. The value price allows you to upgrade and personalize this hardtop in case you want to give it a respray, polish the chrome, or only other direction you want to take this Ford. But because it\'s already so complete and distinct, it\'s the right base to be exactly what you want from day one. It has nice classic style details, like the factory hubcaps, clean body lines, and even a driver\'s spotlight.
The black interior looks good against the red exterior. This has all the great vintage details, like wide bench seats for everyone to spread out, a thin/grippy classic steering wheel, and a speedometer as long as the horizon. Plus, nothing beats the ability to roll down all the windows and show off the pillarless hardtop profile. Just like the exterior, there\'s plenty of appeal when you also can update the style of this one. You could add an old AM radio to be like a time capsule or go the opposite direction with bucket seats, A/C, Bluetooth, and digital readouts for a restomod. You can dream big with this Fairlane because it\'s already a cruiser, and you can take the time to make it yours.
Another reason we love this for a cruiser is because of what\'s under the hood. Ford\'s 289 cubic-inch V8 is great at being powerful and ready for upgrades. This one has already been enhanced with a four-barrel carburetor and a later dual exhaust. It fires up nicely, feeling like it\'s ready to hit the road. In fact, as a true classic, this one likes to have a true vintage driver feeling. But it also gives you the right boulevard-ready features like a three-speed automatic transmission and modern touring tires.
This Fairlane is distinct for its single-year design, and the price means there\'s room left over to make it even more personally distinctive. So if you\'re looking for a great V8 classic, this Ford is where you start. Call now!
