My car was manufactured in the San Jose, California, assembly plant and the original owner purchased it from a dealer in San Jose. The car lived in California until I purchased it from a dealer in North Carolina, George’s Mercury Farm. I’m the second titled owner.

The car is a Fairlane 500 two-door hardtop powered by a 289 with a four-speed on the floor, in front of the bench seat. It still carries the original wire wheel covers.

  1. my mom had a turquoise 1963 fairlane 500. man i wish i could find one like that car. your 1964 is very nice. from one ford man to another, you have every right to be proud of your fine fairlane!

  2. My first new car was a ’64 Fairlane, Guardsman Blue w/white stripe, 289 2bbl(I put on a 4 bbl), 4-speed. Loved that car!
