The 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 was a unique style for this year. And it only gets better on a V8-powered Sports Coupe that has been treated correctly to make for a terrific cruiser.
This car has been under the same care for the past seven years. We have a long list of solid investments over that period, and it looks like the first thing he did was the paint. This is the factory-correct Prairie Bronze, and it has a quality gloss and shine. The pillarless hardtop now has the added distinction of being finished in white, and the way it coordinates with the insert in the full-length trim gives an added sophistication that seems right on an upper-level Fairlane 500. The fundamentals were taken care of with investment in straight body panels, newer trim emblems, and having the bumpers re-chromed in late 2015. And because this is a Sports Coupe, it looks absolutely sporty with its Kelsey-Hayes-style wheels.
The factory-correct interior looks good with the deep and dark color of more recent investments. As you peek inside, you'll also instantly see what makes the Sports Coupe so special. This gave you a beautifully trimmed bucket seat with an artful center console in-between. Even the rear seats are done with this special style and insignia trim. Not only is this attractive, but also the Sports Coupe was over three times rarer than the standard Fairlane 500 hardtop. So this coupe has rarity and distinction. It's the kind of car you'll want to roll down all the windows on the pillarless hardtop and go for a drive. That's why this one also has better cruising music. You have upgraded sound insulation, a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and upgraded stereo speakers.
Another reason this is such a great driver is because of what's under the hood. Ford' 289 cubic-inch V8 is great at being powerful and ready for upgrades. This one has already been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, and newer long tube headers. It fires up nicely and makes a sweet tune out of the upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust. As a true driver, you have power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and upgraded front disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos. This is the distinctive-year Fairlane that also has the look of distinction inside and out. It makes for a great cruiser that you need to get in your garage. Call now!
