V8TV Muscle Car of the Week: 1964 Ford Fairlane Sports Coupe K-Code 289

Ford built muscular versions of nearly every car they made during the 1960s. This 1964 Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe is a great example of how they turned a hum-drum family commuter into a stylish mini-muscle car that packed a serious punch. This Sports Coupe escaped the fate of a straight 6 in favor of a Hi-Po 289 V8 screwed to a 4-speed manual box. The K-Code version churned out 271 HP through increased compression, free-breathing intake and exhaust, a solid cam, and other hop-up goodies. The added bonus is the good looks of the Sports Coupe, wearing a slick Raven Black suit with a bright red interior. Extra-cool is the fact that it is all original and unrestored. It’s our Muscle Car Of The Week from the Brother’s Collection.
