With its great hardtop profile, V8 power, classic looks, and a great story, this 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 has a lot to offer at a value price.
The factory-correct Cascade Green is a cool color to have, and it was updated later in life to make sure it still radiates in the sunshine. This coupe has a great look with the pillarless hardtop profile, wraparound chrome bumpers, full-length trim, and jet-inspired taillights. The addition of Cragar-style wheels is the right upgrade for this car. It adds period-correct speedy style that also is in harmony with all the factory brightwork. The whole car looks like a thoughtful classic package, and we think we know why. This is one of those classics with a great hometown story. It has an original Charlotte DSO, and in fact, it's believed to have never been out of this area all its life. The consignor bought this car off his brother, and the brother believes he purchased it from the original owner. So you have the opportunity to only be the third family to ever own this car in nearly 55 years!
The black interior looks nice against the deep green exterior, and this car was born with this attractive color combo. It has a great vintage look, right down to the artful steering wheel. And you'll really love the details, like how the piping on the seats offers the same hint of white as the side streak on the exterior. Even the trunk mat is correct for this coupe. But there are also some nice upgrades. The oil pressure gauge is an essential for those who enjoy driving their classics. Plus, they cleanly installed under the dash an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and a USB input for your phone. So you get upgraded driving tunes that make you want to roll down all the windows and listen to your favorite music in this pillarless hardtop classic.
Under the hood is proper Ford small block power. It has some flair with the ribbed valve covers, bright air topper, and red plug wires. But what you'll really like is that it fires up nicely while inhaling deeply from the Holley four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the dual exhaust has a subtle V8 sound that fit perfectly with the Fairlane 500's image. With a three-speed automatic transmission and wide modern tires, this is really a fine cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and the original bill of sale that helps tell this coupe's unique hometown story. This is a cool-looking classic with extra to offer, so at a price like this, it makes for an irresistible deal. Call now!
