1964 Model Year Specifics? Fairlane vs Fairlane 500
Howdy folks. I'm a Galaxie owner who is going to look at a '64 Fairlane this weekend and wanted to get some information about the model. It is advertised as a '64 2dr post sedan with a 260 V8 and I'm weighing its options as a potential Thunderbolt clone starter. Can you experts help fill me in?
What is the difference between a regular Fairlane 2dr sedan and a Fairlane 500 sedan, was it just a trim level option, or is there more to it?
Are all models factory with the torsion bar front suspensions or were they regular a-arm suspensions on the V8 models?
Finally, are the '64 model year cars unibody constructions or are they full framed?
