1963 Ford Fairlane
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
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.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
The fourth generation Ford Fairlane was introduced in 1962. It bridged the gap between the compact Ford Falcon and the full-sized Galaxie. Like both the Galaxie and falcon, the Fairlane had a unibody frame but incorporated an unusual feature called torque boxes. These structures were designed to absorb road shock by moving slightly in the vertical plane. the standard engine was the 170 CID (2.8 L) six-cylinder. But as an option, Ford introduced its new Windsor V8, initially with a displacement of 221 CID (3.6 L). Eventually, in 1963 Ford upgraded the performance by offering the Challenger 289 CID engine. Any way you cut it, the Fairlane is an incredible machine and a valuable piece of American automotive history.
