For sale in our Chicago showroom is an exceptional 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 2-Door Hardtop. There are plenty of "old cars" on the market today but this one deserves a second look for sure. This Springtime Yellow 500 began life in sunny Georgia where it was sold new at Carey Paul Ford and that is where she stayed until a few years ago after being with the same owner for nearly 45 years. This car still has the original keys and the original bill of sale is included.
If you want to see what one of these looked like new now is your chance. The body panels are the same that were stamped in the Ford factory and the doors, trunk and hood close and line up like a new car of that time period. To make sure this car was brought back to its former glory a base coat/clear coat finish refreshed the old paint and the bumpers have been re-chromed as well as all glass replaced.
The interior has been completely restored including new door panels, seat covers, headliner, kick panels and carpet. Sitting in this car you are brought back to the fabulous '60's with that bench seat and beautiful plastic steering wheel with chrome horn ring and a big, roomy back seat. Mechanically this car has been completely refurbished including a rebuilt 289 V8 engine, rebuilt automatic transmission, new power brake booster and master cylinder as well as stainless steel lines. The front suspension is nice and tight thanks to new upper ball joints, sway bar and new rear springs. In addition the gas tank and dual stainless steel exhaust have been replaced leaving nothing else to do. If you have been looking for that car that is ready to drive and enjoy now is the time.
