Is this Fairlane Rare?
 
Im trying to figure out the production numbers on are fairlane but i cant seem to find them as im not a ford guy and i dont know where to look

its a 1966 Ford Fairlane 500XL 2 door post came with a 289 if that helps

BarryK 09-11-2005 05:55 PM

Not that I know of.

Why do you think it is?

85Sierra 09-11-2005 06:08 PM

Well i can find production numbers for post cars so im just wondering if it was a lower production car

steve t 09-11-2005 06:46 PM

most cars in 60s with big blocks are the rare ones, but im no expert

FAIRLANE Production Numbers

I don't see any 500 XL post cars either, maybe somebody trimmed out their cheapy model with parts from a Hdtp.? There was a '67 fairlane wagon near here that had all the goodies except for the FE motor from a GT swapped on to it to make a "GT Wagon" It looked totally factory, VERY cool!

reminds me of the Olds 442 wagons and the Pontiac GTO "phantom" wagons, very cool. :thumbup:

I Had a (buddie back in 1977, we were 16 yrs old) that bought a 66 Fairlane GTA 390 C6 Auto, it was green with a white stripe on the bottom. i think he paid $500 for it. i think the GTA was kinda Rare. it said GTA on the Hood and on the stripe on the bottom of the car.

If it's red, it's rare. If it's brown/black it's well done. :D Sorry I just couldn't resist a little joke after reading the caption. :welcome:

The GTA's were the automatic equipped cars, not exactly rare just not as common because back in '66 automatics "were for girls". :P Of course we eventually figured out automatics could be fast too........ :embarrass and girls could drive fast cars. An old girlfriend's older sister was married to a guy that raced back in the 70's, he bought her a '69 Shelby GT500 428/4 speed to play with at the track. She was not only a babe but she could cut a better light than 90% of the guys and she could drive a stick about 20 times better than him...... they got divorced. Go figure. Just saw her a few months ago after almost 25 years. She's still HOT! :eek: :drool: :evil: :mwink: but....... :nono: :spank: I'm happily married.

I think you might have a somewhat wantabe clone,,I'm pretty sure all the 500XL's were hardtops, maybe someone found some 500 xl badges and stuck them on , I had a 64 galaxie 500 XL and it was a hardtop and a 390/ 4 sp

No............ that's part of the reason I'm still happily married LOL. ;) Yeah right, in my dreams........even if I wasn't happily married I'd only think about it. She was/is hot but she was and probably still is about as unstable as they come. In the 3 and a half years her sister and I were together she was married 3 different times and had 4 boyfriends besides! And not necessarily while she wasn't married. :eek: But DAMN could she drive a 4 speed!!!!

This car is canadian by the way, i think it would be really hard to get all the chrome trim to fit though thats what makes me believe its more rare, not to long ago i seen a brochure for 66 fairlanes and it said there were post cars but i cant recall the numbers

500 XL's had a whole lot more trim than that, a whole lot more. The XL was the "luxury" package for the Ford Galaxy and Fairlanes in the 60's. Looks to be straight and solid though. :thumbup:
