Yellow 1966 Ford Fairlane Coupe 428 Cobra Jet CID V8 4 Speed Manual
Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is thrilled to present this 1966 Ford Fairlane GT for sale.
Two time first place award winner at the highly acclaimed Autorama in Detroit. This Blindingly HOT, this beautifully restored and hot very tastefully hot rodded Fairlane is an example of the Fifth generation of this Ford model.
The Fairlane was revised in 1966. The appearance was changed to match the full-sized Ford, which had been restyled in the 1965 model year. The XL, GT, and GTA packages were introduced, as well as a convertible to join the existing range of sedans, hardtops, and station wagons. This GT featured a 390 CID V8 as standard, but as you walk towards this not so subtle yellow beast, you notice some serious enhancements, like the 428 cobra jet emblems on the flared hood scoop and the sweet backswept side exhaust pipes just ahead of the wide section rear tires which shroud gorgeous period correct alloy wheels.
Come around to the driver side and open the door and you will notice a fine example of a civilized beast as your gaze rests upon the Sport Comp RPM gauge with Shift light hugging the steering column behind a beautifully preserved original Fairlane wood rimmed steering wheel, while further in the interior lies an all business Hurst shift handle and reverse lockout lever, which will allow you to control a very strong Borg Warner 4 speed manual transmission with a 4:11 gear ratio leading to a bullet proof Ford 9inch rear end.
Touches of class like the new carpeting and super comfortable front bucket seats contrast nicely with the Fire Extinguisher lying between them and painted to match the exterior color of this beastly beauty of a Fairlane, and make you want to explore what is underneath the hood, where you will find a beautifully detailed and pared down engine bay, highlighting that burly 428 Cobra jet engine which is at the heart of this amazing car.
