Truly Incredible piece of automotive history! This Fairlane 500 Club Victoria has been in the ownership of the same family in the Seattle area since new. The story goes that grandma bought this one new and left the seat covers on and forbade the grandchildren from even riding in it. The car looks incredible with a nice, deep shine. There is chrome & stainless trim everywhere and it really looks impressive. It is reported that the paint is original with the exception of the passenger quarter panel just behind the door where a bike had hit the car. The paint repair was thin and if you look for it specifically you can see it. There is no obvious signs of rust on the car. Again, its reported that this car was garaged its entire life.

The interior is like entering a time warp. The paint and chrome trim shine beautifully on the dash. The seat upholstery is still protected by a plastic cover so long lasting that I'm sure it can't even be made today. The seat upholstery appears to have lived unharmed underneath should the next owner remove the covers. Thanks to the care this car received the systems all appear to work. The factory radio takes a second or two for the tubes to warm up but then comes to life. The heater motor works correctly and the heater doors work like new. The seats are super comfortable with good support. Take a good look at the pics and check the details. This is an impressive example.

Under the hood a 4 Barrel equipped 312 that runs like a clock. These are the upgraded engine from the common 292 and 6 cylinder engine options. Another nice option is the Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission. Many of these cars were produced with the 3 speed column shifted manual transmission. The steering is power assist that works nicely. Braking is also power assist and it works quite well.

The trunk still wears its original trunk mat and cardboard trim boards. The spare tire is held in place by its factory hardware and the original bumper jack is in amazing condition.

The glass all appears to be the original with its original light gray FoMoCo markings.
