  1. Ah yes, back when Detroit's idea of a bucket seat was half a bench. Even the ones that looked like real seats felt and gripped like half a bench.

    Probably a decent buy but for me this era was the point at which the Fairlane started to take on a little too much bulk.

  2. A high school friend bought one of these with a 428 4 speed. The first night he had it we went for a ride in it. He did a posi burnout for about 60 feet. Then he said oops, I started in second gear... That thing had a lot of torque which that huge car needed to get it moving.

  3. Sold for $7600. Seems like a decent car for that money.

    The previous gen. were so very lovely. The Dragnet-era Fairlane hardtops. Yum.

    These always reminded me of a Rambler Marlin from certain angles. That is not a good thing to my eye.
