1966 Ford Fairlane
Car for sale by Duffys Classic Cars in Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52404
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
1966 Ford Fairlane Convertible with XL trim. In the mid 60s the term full-size meant FULL-size and mid-sized meant not as big, and thats where the Ford Fairlane fit into the lineup. Not so big as to require a harbor pilots license to guide it down the street but big enough to put a few friends in it and enjoy a drive-in movie. Not including those in the trunk. To spice things up the powers that be at Ford created the XL sport trim package to compliment the sleek lines of the sheet metal which included a full console with floor shift and bucket seats. This one is powered by a smooth running Ford 289 V-8 Engine and a Cruise-O-Matic transmission, power steering and power top. The tan interior consists of correct console with shifter and original bucket seats. The 289 runs smooth and has complete dual exhaust system. The black vinyl top is in nice shape and it goes up and down as it should. This one goes up and down the road like you would expect it to. The floors do have a couple of minor patches in them but have no rust holes. This one is finished in Springtime Yellow that compliments the buckskin tan bucket seat interior that looks great. Features include the 289 V8 with 2V Carb, correct smooth shifting Cruise-O-Matic, working Factory AM Radio in the dash. Performance Tuned Exhaust Smooth and Effortless Power Steering. The power black Vinyl Top with a plastic rear window works great and the bucket seat Interior with center console with brushed aluminum trim is in nice shape. There is the full length lower body accent moldings. Safety Guard Padded Dash along with color keyed seat belts up front. The factory instrumentation works great, chrome and stainless are in good shape. There is the drivers side Chrome Rear View Mirror and Day Night Interior Rear View Optional 14 inch stock Steel Wheels with full correct hubcaps and white wall radial tires.
