Fairlane?

Not really a fairlane. More of a falcon/Fairlane hybrid (XA-XB ZF-ZG.)
first photo of what it was, second is after taking it off the road some 5 years ago. Am now in the process of restoring it.
Cheers

Re: Fairlane?

Domani? Is that something like our Accord or maybe a Acura (Honda) TL? I was just looking a the quarter panel and it appears to be the same as a LS.

Re: Fairlane?

G,day LTD_0n20s

onsidering the LTD was a hybrid being predominantly from the Fairlane ZF & ZG model with bits from the Facon XA & XB plus a few bits to make it different like the small back wings, the overall length, the smaller back window and the distinctive retractable headlight covers, you would be correct.

Mine is in costing an arm and both legs at the moment getting rustored (a cheaper version of restored).

Re: Fairlane?

Rustored! :lol: Never thought of it that way. I've had a few myself back in the day. I lived in Cleveland, Ohio. Not far from the Ford engine plant. Two of my brothers worked in that factory as well. Lots of snow and ice in the winter there. So they used to cinder and sand the roads before salt. Then salt only. Now they use chemicals most of the time.

Bottom line in any case is that the cars get torn up pretty bad. And so were mine. I had a 62 Fairlane that I rustored and later a 67 Custom 500 (Big Galaxie body, notchback roofline) that had the frame root out totally in less than five years.

Current rides: 1994 F-150 XL , 1998 Ford Escort Sport , 2000 ZX2 Sport , 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt!

Re: Fairlane?

rustoration was the term coined by the panel beater. man I look back now and wish I had kept some of the old cars that were around and quietly rusting.
Still, have this one now. am going in tomorrow to get some photos on the digital. will post them and also post in this thread when it is done.
