From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is excited to offer this sharp 1961 Ford Fairlane for sale. It is turnkey and ready to go with only about 5,000 miles on the 351 Windsor V8 engine since being rebuilt. It is paired to an automatic transmission with overdrive and has 3.31 gearing in a Ford open rear-end. This car has the big body luxury feel with the get up and go of a Classic American Muscle car. For 1961, Ford smoothed the sides of the Fairlane. The designers also shortened and angled the fins, starting at the front door handles and flowing back to the rear end of the car. An additional cut-line was placed on the front fenders, ending at a smooth drivers side door. The front end was also less elaborate, making the car substantially smoother. Emphasizing the space-age look, the taillights went to the round jet-engine look along with the rest of the Ford line. Large, roomy, and pleasantly styled, the 1960 and 1961 Ford Fairlane is surprisingly rare today, though the variety of configurations mean that there is likely a Fairlane to fit virtually any need if it can be found. The overall paint and body of this 61 is in great condition and shines bright in the sun. Most recognize the Fairlane for its stylish grille and taillights. The red paint and offset 18 front with 20 rear Ridler wheels make this 61 Ford have an aggressive appearance. The custom gray cloth interior with leather trim show minor wear and look great. All the chrome trim, door handles, and bumpers still shine with a mirror like finish. This car has the perfect mix of classic car feel with more updated hot rod style. The dash seems to be original except for the extra gauges and steering wheel. The current owner has recently put on new tires, installed a new radio with Cd, new Carburetor, new water pump, and even the fan and Radiator are new. Options on this Ford include Air conditioning, CD player, seat belts, alloy wheels, radial tires, bucket seats, and so much more! If you are looking for the perfect car to take to car shows, impress your car buddies, maybe your next pro street, or even your first muscle car than this is the car for you.
