YAK Car Pic of the Day



I hope that gaping hole in the windshield of this 1960 Ford Fairlane 500 Town Sedan wasn’t caused by someone going through it. This is another photo taken by my daughter Katie, when we visited the C.T.C. Auto Ranch last month just outside of Ft. Worth, TX. Keen observers will notice the distinctive roof chrome of another ’60 Ford just over this one’s shoulder — this time a Galaxie Town Victoria (a four-door hardtop like the one pictured below), and more than one early ’60s Mercury Comet. Although the paint’s long-gone on this Fairlane 500, the sheet metal and a lot of the trim is still very usuable for someone’s restoration job. That windshield though, not so much. Here’s a full-sized Ford brochure link.
