CC Outtake: This 1965 Ford Fairlane Is Getting An Unexpected New Lease On Life

CC 201 107 900

When I came upon this ’65 Fairlane 500 two-door sedan (a rather uncommon model) being hauled off from a storage lot on this flatbed, with its proud new owner standing by, I could well imagine it ending up as a resto-mod, with a giant V8 under the hood. But then we started talking, and it turns out that’s not the case at all.

It’s going to get a proper restoration, back to its original state, including its 200 CID six and all. What a pleasant surprise. It seems that  the predictable “hot wheels” phenomena is perhaps experiencing growing fatigue, and originality is becoming more in vogue. Three cheers for that!
