Car Description

1966 Ford Fairlane GTA 2-dr hardtop coupe powered by a 6.4L 390cui V8 Ford FE-series big block engine and driven by a 4-speed manual transmission.

In the ’60s it seems like Ford had big V8 engines that it would cram under the hood of just about anything. The 1966 Ford Fairlane GTA you see here is one of the cars that was given a big V8 in the form of a 390 cubic-inch engine, and this 390cui V8 had 335 horsepower and a whopping 427 ft.lbs of torque.

This ’66 Fairlane GTA is a great driver condition S-Code 390ci V8, and these GT-A’s were direct competitor’s with GM’s SS396 Chevelle’s. The Fairlane GT/GTA was Ford’s response to the beginning of the big block muscle car era. Plenty of Fairlane’s can be found, but the S-Code GT/GTA’s are highly sought after and getting tougher to find, especially a good solid one like this.

This car was produced on the 8th January 1966 in Ford’s Kansas City plant as a Fairlane 500 GT 2-dr hardtop w/ bucket seats and fitted with an ‘S-Code’ 390cui V8 4bbl GT engine. The trim/body plate identifies it as painted in Springtime Yellow with Black interior trim. It was fitted with a C6 automatic transmission paired to a 3.25:1 ratio differential and delivered to Omaha Nebraska DSO.

The body is in great shape with no rust seen and the paint is driver quality condition with a few knicks and scratches, but overall looks good. This Fairlane originally came in yellow with one repaint to the gray you see today. The Chrome and Bright-work all shine nicely but do show wear throughout the years. Glass is in great shape with a new windshield just installed and all windows operate smoothly. The Hood is the hard to find style with the 390 inserts that just makes this car pop!

The interior is black vinyl bucket seats and typical wear is seen throughout but really it presents quite well with no tears in the seats, etc. Bucket seats and console cars are the most sought after in the muscle car community and especially factory black interior is key when finding the right car. The headliner is in good shape with only a minor tear directly above the driver and all the door panels and rear deck-shelf are in good shape as well. The dash is in good shape and all the gauges work correctly.

The engine is the true S-Code 390ci V8 that everybody wants. It fires right up and runs great! This Fairlane was originally a C6 automatic car, but now features a 4-speed manual and 9″ differential, which makes the driving experience that much better. The trunk on this car shows the original paint which also indicates original metal inside the trunk. The chassis is exceptionally well kept as far as originality, and it’ll be tough to find an original metal Fairlane in this good of shape in terms of being solid and rust free. New rear springs and shocks as well as CalTracs bars have been installed as well.

This Fairlane GTA would make an excellent driver and presents itself quite well driving down the road as-is, or would make an excellent restoration project with how solid the car is for being original metal. How often do you see these GTA’s offered, they are indeed very rare!!
