While we usually focus on classics like Porsches and Ferraris, there are many other car manufacturers with a rich history of classic cars. Ford may not immediately come to mind, but this striking 1970 Ford Fairlane 500 from Collecting Cars will change your mind. With a current bid of just $12,500 Australian dollars, this retro-tastic beauty is a steal for any classic car enthusiast.

This 1970 Ford Fairlane 500 from Collecting Cars has covered a considerable distance (hence the relatively low bid) at nearly 250,000 miles. This Australian-built classic model offered a unique blend of luxury and performance. Under the hood lies a 302ci (4.9-liter) Cleveland V8 engine, producing up to 220 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque, paired with a three-speed automatic transmission, ensuring it still packs a punch despite its age.

Classic Australian Excellence

Originally designed and manufactured in Australia, the ZD model marked the final iteration of the original Z-series Fairlanes, introduced by Ford in November 1970. We are absolutely enamored with its vintage aesthetic here at The Status Life. The Fairlane 500 is equipped with a 302ci V8 engine, automatic transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes as standard, promising a smooth ride for its future owner.

The 1970 Ford Fairline 500 from Collecting Cars (currently at a bid of $12,500AUD) sports a timeless Silver finish coupled with a grille reminiscent of the Lincoln Continental, vertically stacked headlights, and an updated taillight design. Inside, the original interior exudes classic charm with adjustable bucket seats, wood trim, climate control, and a black-backed instrument cluster.

This stunning Ford ZD Fairlane 500 signifies a classic Australian vehicle that is relatively unknown to us at The Status Life, serving as an emblem of the local luxury car market in Australia. Powered by a responsive 302ci V8 engine and featuring a spacious and opulent interior, the Fairlane was favored for its ability to cover long distances with ease. Despite being in storage for almost 20 years, the vehicle remains in remarkable condition and is ready to be driven as is or undergo a full restoration.
