The first year for the two-year-only stacked headlight look.
During the 1960s, the mid-sized Ford Fairlane underwent a total of four redesigns, but the stacked headlights used on the 1966 and 1967 model years might be the most recognizable for this car. If this is the kind of Blue Oval you're looking for, check out the GAA Classic Cars auction on Friday July 26th for your chance to be the winning bidder and bring this gorgeous coupe home.
This 1966 Ford Fairlane 500 is the Club Coupe model, which means it is a two-door post car with a separation between the door glass and the rear quarter windows; the Fairlane also offered a hardtop model that did not have this post. This Fairlane is an original North Carolina car, and it's wearing new paint and chrome for a clean exterior that's ready to show. GT Rally wheels and raised letter tires finish off this car's stylish appearance.
The interior is just as clean with a two-tone gray interior and a front bench seat. Other than the auxiliary gauges and floor-mounted tachometer, this cabin appears to be as stock as the day it rolled off the assembly line.
Being a C-Code car, this 1966 Ford Fairlane is powered by a 289 CID V-8 that was originally topped with a two-barrel carb, but this car has been upgraded with a four-barrel carb. With this setup, the Fairlane will definitely get up and go, but it will still be perfect for cruising around town. This engine is mated to Ford's three-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, and the car also has factory power steering.
Overall, this car is extremely clean inside and out, and would make a great addition to any collection.
