With a cool factory color combo, some worthwhile upgrades, and proper V8 power, this 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 sedan is a distinct classic with a ton of appeal.
This car has classic style with a little bit something extra. This feeling starts with the paint as the factory-correct Raven black has been given a respray later in life. So now it has a hint of extra shine from the clearcoat. Nicely contrasting this is the full-length red streak trim that instantly gives this Fairlane a sporty look. As a proper '60s machine, this one has some nice brightwork on the bumpers, grille, and premium window trim. Plus, there's some added shine from places like the full polished smoothie wheel covers and practical chrome rain deflectors on each door window of this sedan.
The red streak on the exterior was a preview of the full red interior, and this one was born with this attractive factory color combo! This has a highly original-style presentation that shows the level of style that came on the upper-level 500 models. We especially like the silver trim in the seating that coordinates with the bright trim on the doors and dash. There's plenty of room for family and friends in a classic like this. And it really nails the vintage atmosphere with the right components, like the working heater, artful steering wheel, and AM radio that's still on display. Also, because this is meant to be a driver's classic, there's also a handy tach subtly mounted below the dash.
Under the hood is a correct-style 289 cubic-inch V8. It has some nice upgrades like the cool valve covers and a dual exhaust. But we really like this because it's a hardy motor made for cruising power. And the way this one fires up and runs really feels like this was respectfully enjoyed and maintained for decades. Plus, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you control over it all while delivering that vintage feeling.
The sale comes complete with the original bill of sale and owner's manual, and maintenance records. So if you like vintage style and great details, don't let this Fairlane 500 slip away. Call today!!!
