The fourth generation Ford Fairlane was downsized in 1962 and fit between the smaller Falcon and full sized Galaxie both in size and price. The Fairlane was available in basic configuration with simple inline-6, but it could be upgraded with Ford’s 221 cubic inch Windsor V8 or a 260 cubic inch “Challenger” version for even more performance. Neither V8 in stock trim gives the Fairlane anything other than basic acceleration, and as such most restorations involve adding a touch more horsepower.

This two-door classic has recently been restored and has what looks like a decent quality paint job in the photos. The car rides on a large set of aftermarket chrome wheels and looks perfect to play the part of a RestoMod with nice looks and modern performance.
Under the hood lurks a 302 cubic inch V8 from a post 1968 Ford that should put out something in the neighborhood of 300 horsepower. With the mated T-5 manual transmission the car should be fun to drive and scoot around town with decent speed.
The interior is a striking shade of red and has had some time/effort/money put into its restoration – and who doesn’t love red-on-red?
The cowl induction style hood is a bit much, but it looks similar to the hood used on the 427 cubic inch equipped Fairlane Thunderbolt drag car.
