The Mustang tends to be the car that everyone thinks of when they think of classic Fords. The pony car is certainly not the only car that Ford built in the ’60s that is a classic today. Take this 1964 Ford Fairlane, it has sleek lines and is an all-around good looking car. This particular 1964 Ford Fairlane is very, very far from stock and was built as a pro street car ready to put it down at the drag strip and cruise the streets.
The seller of the car says that no expense was spared, and from looking at the beast that seems like an apt claim. The highlight of the build is the 572 cubic-inch V8 engine that is based on a Ford SVO 460 block with a square 4.5-inch bore and stroke. It uses Eagle rods, JE pistons with a 10.5:1 compression, Comp Cams solid-lifter camshaft, roller rockers, Trick Flow aluminum heads, and a custom high-rise intake manifold topped with a 1050 Dominator carb.
All those go-fast parts add up to an engine with 839 horsepower and 776 pound-feet of torque “on the dyno” per the seller, so that should be power at the wheels. The shift knob on the trans says four-speed, but the seller says it is a 6-speed manual transmission. A narrowed 9-inch rear housing with Strange 31-spline axles and 4.56 gears puts the power to the ground.
The 1964 Ford Fairlane rolls on a custom A-arm suspension in the front with rack and pinion steering, and 4-link in the rear. Wheels are Centerline Convo-Pro with 215/60/15 front and 31×18.59-15 out back. Inside the car has a roll cage, custom upholstery, B&M shifter, and custom Autometer gauges. Streetside Classics is asking $43,995 for the car and claims it has only 136 miles on it since being built. Check out a milder build with this 1965 Ford Fairlane.
