I factory ordered the Fairlane in March of 1966 and took delivery in April. The only engine available on this model was the HP 390 - in 1967 the 289 was standard with the 390 and 427 being options. The car was a grocery getter until 1989 at which time the body was taken down to bare metal and painted with Deltron enamel. After that it became a week end and fair weather driver. About 15 years ago I swapped out the 390 for the 427. The car has 189,000 miles on the clock and has traveled across most of the Western US. If anyone would like to know more about the engine build I'll dig out my list of the after market components that went into it. The car is fairly quick so I continue to hope that my increased wisdom will offset my slower reflexes. It has been an amazing car !
