Passing through downtown Sanborn one day in October, I looked off to the side of the road and spotted this 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 (in Champagne Beige) sitting in a parking lot. Even though Ford produced 20,506 of them, I rarely saw one back in the day and never (well, except this once) run across one now. This one has the optional luggage rack ($45.40) and power tailgate window ($32.30). I don’t see a radio antenna anywhere though. Did the original owner take a page out of my Dad’s book (saving the princely sum of $58.50) and buy this thing with a piece of plastic on the dash where the optional radio would have gone? (see the one in the inset with the word “FORD” on it) Oh, the horror!
