Up for grabs with no reserve through Tom Mack Auctions is a Raven Black 1966 Ford Fairlane GT with a fresh 390 cubic inch engine, a four-speed manual transmission, and a red deluxe interior. The car has undergone a frame up restoration that included some performance upgrades and is sure to catch the eye of even the most oblivious, and with no reserve set, this deal surely won’t last long.
Ford introduced the legendary Fairlane in 1955 as a full sized replacement for the Crestline. The sleeker, more stylish body lines of the newly introduced car were well received and proved to be a good foundation to build on, giving way to such names as the Crown Victoria in its first generation of production.
By the second generation, the Fairlane made such an impact on the market that Ford outsold Chevrolet for the fist time in over twenty years. Throughout its seven generation run, the Fairlane seemed to be ever changing and in many ways shaped the brands future line up.
Beginning with small displacement, low horsepower power plants like Ford's 3.7-liter straight-6, 4.5-liter V8, and 4.8-liter Y-block engines, as the horsepower wars started to heat up the Fairlane quickly drove head on into the large displacement engine category with the introduction of the 390 cubic inch big block. Although more powerful engine options closely followed with the goal of dominating the race track, the 390 was the most popular high horsepower street car option and was featured in the new GT and GTA packages of 1966.
Even though the Fairlane’s popularity called for mass production at the time, finding one of these cars well optioned, in its original form, and in good condition for an affordable price may prove to be a task. Throwing a bone to enthusiasts looking for the perfect Fairlane, Tom Mack Classics is rolling a mint 1966 Ford Fairlane across their auction block.
