Ford Midsize Muscle - Fairlane, Torino & Ranchero

    By

    In the postwar years, Henry Ford delivered the 'Right Size Ford, ' the practical ride many American families wanted. As things got fancier in the fifties, Ford jazzed up matters with the Fairlane, a legendary Dearborn nameplate. Covering the evolution of Henry's family chariot into the muscle car, with all those hallowed V8s of yore, this book reveals the commercial and performance zenith of late '60s America, as buyers optioned Torino and Gran Torino to their hearts' content. It's said that Ford stands for 'First On Race Day: ' read how Henry showed his domestic rivals how it was done on the racetrack, and in the showroom - can you say Thunderbolt 427?! With the Fairlane, Henry invented the midsize car; with the Ranchero, the car-based pickup ...and this book, above all, is an account of Ford being ahead of the game.
