Yeah just got it up here, bought it back in june..lol.. its not so nice up close, the pic does it great justice.. its rough and rusty. Almost as bad as the stang is.. will be over to the GTO section soon..
From the description, and the fact that it's one of those cars you can't quite easily identify, I'm guessing it was a Fairlane Fastback. The back windows on these got progressively bigger from '66 through '69, and the Fairlane was the plain Jane version of the Torino fastback body. There were Fairlane Fastback GT models that were great sleepers, but the fastback body style was not very popular in Fairlane trim, which means there wasn't much trim at all. Here's a 68 Fairlane Fastback I saw for sale: http://www.antiquecar.com/index/listings/page3129.htm
Well, no, since I posted that it was a '67 Fairlane already!
Sorry, I thought there was still some lingering question. The wiki picture you posted was a '67 Fairlane coupe and you said it "was close", which I took to mean the search continues. I was guessing you saw the less common Fairlane fastback and provided a pic. If the headlights are vertical, it's a '66 or '67, horizontal, a '68 or '69.
So can you say definitively what it was so we can close this thread? Was it a '67 Fairlane Fastback? Cool car, especially if it has a big block.
