KULTULZ posted this today over in the Engine forums.............

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.

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. Sorry I just couldn't resist a little joke after reading the caption.

The GTA's were the automatic equipped cars, not exactly rare just not as common because back in '66 automatics "were for girls". Of course we eventually figured out automatics could be fast too........ 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! but....... I'm happily married.

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. But DAMN could she drive a 4 speed!!!!
