This 1965 Ford Fairlane has been given the right investment to be a sleek sleeper-style mean machine. So check out the upgraded suspension, four-on-the-floor, and awesome 351 V8 all wrapped in a very clean and inconspicuous package.
There's something fundamentally attractive about the 1965 Fairlane. These were intermediate cars, but they were styled to have full-size flair. The tall/sharp fenders, flatter front end, tall grille, and quad headlights looked like they wanted to take up maximum space and own the road. And this example shows a solid investment in keeping an appealing style. There's a sleek look to the maroon paint, the big chrome bumpers shine nicely, and the full-length trim showcases the straightness of the sheet metal. Plus, the classic details are nice everywhere from the hood ornament to the tail light trim. And the dog dish hubcaps are pure stock, but they also can be a beacon. After all, this Ford wants to go incognito, but real enthusiasts know about the Thunderbolt and other quarter mile kings that had a similar appearance. So this sleeper style actually makes many of us pay attention when spotting it at cars & coffee.
Just like the exterior, the interior shows off nice investments in a clean style with the right touch of competition-ready attitude. The full black package has a fresh look on the carpeting, door panels, and headliner. And the two wide rows of bench seats look clean and complete, right down to the bright buttons in the seatback. Of course, the bench seat cars were also exactly what you had in the best factory blacktop burners. The same vibe goes for the clean radio delete dash. Plus, you have additions like the Hurst floor shifter. And the tach prominently added to the top of the dash was a vintage version of a head-up display back in the day.
The engine bay has the look of a proper investment, and the tidy setup puts the hardy components like those Ford Racing valve covers on full display. Plus, this 351 cubic-inch V8 has been enhanced with performance pieces like an Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer Air Gap aluminum intake, and Patriot aluminum heads. There are also good supporting components like an HEI distributor and a large aluminum radiator. The V8 fires up with gusto as the dual exhaust feeds a set of glasspack mufflers. And while you're looking under the car, check out the upgraded rear end with a triangulated four-link and QA1 adjustable coilovers. It's a solid and powerful street machine, and you take firm control over it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
This has the classic sleeper style we all love and it even has the driving sensation of a vintage quarter-mile machine. It makes for a true classic with a truly irresistible personality. Call today!!!
