my dream car, a 1973 SD 455 Trans Am in Bucaneer red. i like red vehicles!
Axxe, believe it or not I just moved an early '60's (it looks the same as the one in your pic) Fairlane 500 up to Tehama in NorCal a year or two ago for a buddy. I hauled that up there and hauled my '64 Ranchero back home. His Fairlane has a tiny little V8 in it. I think it is a 221ci? Still runs though, he drove it on and off of my trailer when we hauled it. Same color too.

Is that the Ford "FE" block? I thought the smallest they got was 352ci. The FE is the engine they put in the first Ford muscle car- I think it was a 427 or 428 in a Fairlane in 1964?

Dream cars, that I might actually own some day: 1965 Sunbeam Tiger (with the original Ford 260), or a 1970 Jensen Interceptor, (with the Chrysler 440 and 727 torque flight).

Both of them are British chassis and bodies, with good solid American engines. The British built great bodies but their engines and trannys sucked.

There is a Jensen Interceptor parked at a shop next door to my work. You want me to ask if its for sale? (it has been sitting there for years).

I've had many cars and trucks over the years. One that eluded me was a 1966 Charger. If I was to own a car again it's one I'd really want.


I'm more a truck/SUV guy these days so my next ride will fall into that genre. I'm a HUGE Jeep fan. The CJ's the Cherokee & Wagoners,Even the little Comanche trucks. Lots of Jeep love.

the 61 Fairlane had a 292 Y-block. the same engine as the 272 and the 312 Thunderbird engine used in the 1955-57 T-Birds.

the 66 F100 had the 352 FE block. same basic engine as the 390, 406, 410, 428 and the 427 FE engines and the 360. the 352 FE was used more in trucks in the mid 60's. the 360 FE was used in the 70's in a lot of different Ford trucks.

The first one I ever seen was that same Mopar green. 383 engine and was love at first sight. I've had some pretty cool cars but I'd of give a couple of them for a tricked out 66 charger.
