Serious coin too.


Locally, this '60 Fairlane with the 352 HO motor has been for sale for decades, like most of the classic and antique cars at this dealership. Would love to buy and restomod this car in honor to my dad as his final car was the same body style and year but with the 292/auto. Again, some serious coin here too.

Ya, I was going to say that the engine is worth more than the car, and the car's awesome without the engine.

I've seen pics of this before. Outstanding car!

It is pricey, but I hope he gets every dime for it. It can only help out plight in the coming years.

Does the built engine devalue the car any? Would an untouched 427 bring more money?

427 Ford SOHC Electronic Fuel Injector

For that kind of coin, The entire car should be top shelf and with this:


The 427 SOHC or “Cammer” was originally designed to take on the new 426 Hemi in NASCAR. Using a 427 FE block as the foundation, the Cammer’s secret weapon was monstrous cylinder heads with a single cam on each one, resulting in monstrous power, so much so that NASCAR outlawed it. Big power is what the Cammer is all about and nothing says power like a Hilborn injector. Relive the days when A/FX cars ruled with a Hilborn on your street car. Our injector or EFI Kit provides all the power and drivability you need and is the perfect way to top off this glorious engine.

No and maybe

The 427 SOHC engine was an over-the-counter piece only. I believe this car was built with a 300 HP 390 Super Marauder engine. So in this case it's definitely worth more money with the SOHC.

I'm not sure what a SOHC engine in an original 427 car would do to the value. I'm sure it would increase if the original 427 was in the garage. Otherwise it might be a wash?

Highest price I've ever seen paid for a 427 full size Merc was $113,000, but that was years ago.

$25K knocked off of the asking price - now, $119,995.00. I don't think it would be too far fetched to state this car could probably been purchased for $1,000.00 during the '70s gas crisis. I recall a co-worker whose dad bought a running and in good shape 1966 7Litre Galaxie with dual carbs and 4 speed for $700.00. I would buy it if I could but now I'm looking at Honda's newest 450 dual sport coming out later this year....

Brings back an old memory.

At the dragstrip in Montgomery, NY, 1960/61, two Fords with the new 352 motor showed up. One was a black convertible with "built by Ford to beat Chevy" written all over it. He lost, and some idiots in the crowd threw bottles at the car when it was coming back along the return road.

Another one, a red 2 dr sedan, was doing very good, but blew a 1st/2nd shift (column) and lost to a Chevy.

Tipping my hat to you! Vaguely familiar with Montgomery, NY as I had a customer there - have no idea about the drag strip. Where I live now, the neighborhood drag strip is now a city park!

I entered Kindergarten during the fall of 1961 in Leavenworth, KS. Dad had retired 4 years earlier from the USACE as an O-5 and became a civilian employee at Ft. Leavenworth after moving to the area from South Florida in 1959. He owned a 1955 Crown Vic Convertible - I came home from the hospital in it. He traded for a 1959 Fairlane (remember this car) and was with him when he traded it for the 1960 Fairlane. Dad passed in 1962 of heart disease at the age of 45.

Mom gave up her driver's license years earlier for whatever reason - stated she didn't like driving or owning a car. Her first car was a 1947 Buick Roadmaster Convertible (part of a divorce settlement) - she said it was huge (she was a small woman) and had a lot of problems with it. She put the Fairlane in storage, thinking she would get her driver's license again - she didn't. Car taken out of storage in 1963 and sold. Many memories of it. I want to restomod the 352HO Fairlane at Morrison Motors - to look 'period correct' but heavily updated 'under the skin'.

Thanks for responding to the thread!

I forgot to mention that there were times when they ran four cars at a time. Being an airstrip, the runways were wide enough to support a four car race.

I ran mostly at Englistown, NJ, although I also raced at a strip in NJ (Flemington?) that would open Wed evenings strictly for grudge matches, no class designations. You could race against your friends without worrying about getting a ticket.

Your previous mention of the Montgomery, NY drag strip piqued my curiosity. Started off as a military airport during WWII before becoming Orange County Airport during the early 60s'. A bit of east coast drag racing history made there too during the few short years of its existence.
