Bought in 1982, for $750 minus the short block, but with the induction, exhaust, and trans.
Oh, and it's a bucket seat one of 72 built, by the way.
Sold it a year later for 10 grand, intake and exhaust were sold separatly.
The man who purchased the Fairlane “did a little bodywork” and put a 427 motor together. His interests changed, and the car sat in a body shop.
The 427 Fairlane owner died in the summer of 2017.
“The son called me. The problem was the car had been in a body shop for 35 years.”
The body shop owner wanted $15,000 in storage fees. (that's $35 a month)
you can tell the hood is a factory original, the bottom of the X has a sectioned area to allow room for a Dual Quad air filter
