HARROD —The Ford Fairlane was sold between 1955 and 1970. It's competitor was the Pontiac Tempest GTO, which was a mid-sized car. Ford had been concentrating on their Mustang in the mid '60's, that a re-work on the Fairlane was all but halted, until success was seen in their Mustang. After the Mustang success continued, in 1966 the Ford Fairlane was give a completely fresh look for 1966. The headlamps were stacked at the front, and for the first time, a convertible model was offered. The 1966 Ford Fairlane was hot with its new sporty look with a base price of $2,843. The sales brochures read, "Quiet quality ... powered by Ford." There were 78 million cars registered in the United States in 1966, and gasoline was 32 cents a gallon.



David Ward, of Harrod, brought his 1966 Ford Fairlane to The Lima News' Real Wheels Cruise In. With the long body on this car it all but glides down the road. A perfect car for a Sunday drive.
