Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1965 Ford Fairlane K Code

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s pristine and rare 1965 Ford Fairlane K Code.

Mike McQuesten has a beauty on his hands. Not only is his Fairlane breathtaking, it is somewhat rare. This is what Mike had to say about his cherished Ford…

"Here are pictures of my 1965 Fairlane K Code. It is an original numbers matching high-performance 289. It's backed by a Ford Top-Loader 4-speed and 3.50 differential. According to the Fairlane Club of America, only an estimated 700-750 K Code Fairlanes were produced for 1965.

A unique feature of this Fairlane is that it was ordered sans a radio! Strange for a bucket seat/console Sports coupe. I recently installed a replica of the original Arvinode exhaust system produced by Waldron Exhaust. The system fit well and provides a subtle performance note. I drive this Fairlane regularly. The solid lifter cam in these 289 Hi-Po’s has no problem revving to 6000 RPM’s. When appropriate to do so of course."
