Before there was a Mustang GTA, there was the Fairlane GTA, and this one is a brute. Packing a 390 cubic inch V8, this 1966 GTA was the nastiest, fastest Ford on the road in 1966 and you'd better believe it still makes a stir today. Not-so-subtly finished in code T Candyapple Red, this is the face of Ford racing in the '60s. On the street, the GTA took no prisoners, and was neatly positioned as a gentleman's hot rod that could pound the strip on Sunday and commute in rush-hour traffic Monday morning. Beautifully finished, it's a good thing it's red, because you're going to want to show off the quality bodywork underneath. The hardtop profile looks sleek, which is just right for the high banks of the NASCAR circuit, and Ford knew that they didn't have to advertise when there were 390 cubes under the hood. Instead, there's just a simple white stripe along the rockers framing a small GTA badge and a matching one on the trunk. Sure, the hood inserts are a little flashy, but on Ford's popular performer, you'd expect a little bit of swagger, no? Chrome remains excellent, including both bumpers, and the two-tiered grille is in great shape. The rocket age was almost over for Ford, but this one retains a set of jet-inspired taillights, just for fun. The matching red interior is equally spectacular, fully restored using factory-correct patterns throughout. The Fairlane GTA's upscale mission is particularly evident here, with handsome stitching on the seatbacks, a center console, and lots of chrome on the instrument panel. The stock gauges are kind of minimalist (although in great condition), so a set of auxiliary dials watching voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature was fitted underneath. The steering wheel is a beautiful piece of performance art that just begs for a set of vintage driving gloves to be wrapped around its rim. Vintage Air supplied the suitably 60s-looking under-dash A/C unit and an AM/FM/CD stereo radio has been fitted in the stock location up high where it belongs. There's plenty of room in the back seat, and the spacious trunk will carry enough luggage to go coast-to-coast, along with a full-sized spare and jack assembly. Performance is impressive thanks to the recently rebuilt 390 under the hood. Ford wasn't doing matching numbers in 1966, so there's no way to claim that this one is "matching numbers" in the traditional sense, but it is a correct S-code 4-barrel 390 rated at a stout 335 horsepower. Actually, that might be a bit of an understatement today, since there's an Edelbrock intake and a Holley double-pumper under that chrome air cleaner. Ford Blue engine paint and chrome valve covers sparkle in the satin black engine bay, and there's a ton of new hardware, including the full braking system with dual master cylinder, a new alternator, and, of course, the A/C system. It's backed by a C6 3-speed automatic and a 9-inch rear with 3.25 gears inside, so you can really use all that torque. Classic Torque Thrusts are a vintage look, and wear 235/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. Beautiful, comfortable, and wicked fast, this Fairlane GTA is everything you'd expect from Ford's race-bred mid-size. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
