Ford Fairlane 1963 Description

The best cars are those with an interesting story to tell, and what makes this 1963 Ford Fairlane even more appealing is that it has a fresh 289, a 4-speed, cold A/C, and a fantastic color combination. Need we say more?The Fairlane often lives in the shadow of the Galaxie, but looking at this cool hardtop, we're not so sure why that's the case. The last vestiges of tail fins give this one a long, fast look and the bright trim along its flanks is certainly upscale enough. The noses are quite similar and the faux hood scoop on this one seems to emphasize the Fairlane's performance side more than anything else. Wearing code J Rangoon Red paint, it looks quite good today and certainly emphasizes the unique blend of performance and sophistication that defined the Fairlane. The trim is in excellent condition, including the stainless rub strips that run the length of the body, and the jet-inspired taillights look as awesome as ever. Add in the custom mirrors and tinted windows and this car has an aggressive personality that's exactly right for the 1960s. It's easy to see where the money was spent, because this car is in great condition.It gets even better inside, where there's a gorgeous black and red with fresh seat covers, carpets, and a restored steering wheel. They took a few liberties with the restoration, most notably the seat covers, but that's an easy sin to forgive when everything else looks this good. The original AM radio is gone but there's a new AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in its place and cold A/C comes from the box hanging underneath. The factory instrument panel looks bright and crisp and has been augmented with a set of period auxiliary dial sin their own pods. And yes, that's a 4-speed manual in the center console, a fantastic find on this mid-sized cruiser. The full-sized back seat was trimmed to match the front and there's a big tach up top, Shelby-style. The trunk is truly massive and includes a reproduction mat and a brand new spare tire with jack assembly.The engine is a freshly rebuilt 289 cubic inch V8, which is a step up from the original F-code 260 cubic incher. Finished two months ago and beautifully detailed, the engine bay isn't 100% correct, but it is clean, neat, and very sharp-looking. A myriad of new parts, including a Holley carburetor, Mallory ignition, and those cool finned valve covers make it look and act fast. Everything was painted to match the bodywork, so it has a custom look but details like the original-style decals keep it grounded. The 4-speed manual transmission was also checked and reinstalled, and feeds 3.25 gears in the 9-inch rear end, so it's a superlative highway cruiser. You'll also note that it's pretty tidy underneath with a lot of new parts, including a fully rebuilt front end. There's also a great-sounding dual exhaust system and a set of custom front Magnum 500 wheels painted to contrast with the bodywork. Four 235/60/14 white-letter radials give it a performance attitude.A very cool Fairlane with a ton of recent work and a very cool look. Call today!
