Historical: The 1962 Fairlane began the first
Fairlane sports coupe which continued through 1965. These
Fairlanes were bigger than a Falcon, yet smaller than a
Galaxie and offered the best of both worlds, solid
performance, with great economy. The 1964 Fairlane body
was also used to build the "Thunderbolt"
Fairlane stuffed with 427 high riser V-8 engine designed
for the drag strip. Only 54 of these rare birds were
produced and are legendary in the Ford racing history
In 1965, Ford moved
the Fairlane out of the mid-size market. The base engine
was the 200 cubic inch V6 that produced 120 horsepower.
The 289 cubic-inch V8 replaced the 260 cu.in. engine.
