The 1958 Fairlane body lines has been freshened up with a similated hood scoop, revised grill and two head light per side configuration, but the biggest changes are mechanical. There is a new three speed automatic transmission added to the options list alongside the basic three speed manual and the two speed automatic. The basic engine offer is now a new generation 292 CID (4.78 L) putting out 205 hp (153 kW) with the two barrel or upgrading to the new 332 CID (5.4 L) will give 240 hp with the base two barrel or the "interceptor"  4 barrel version develops 265 hp. The ultimate power for '58 is an all new 352 CID (5.77 L) "interceptor" V8 producing 300 hp (224 kW)

Ford Fairlane 500-1966 images

The 1966 Fairlane is available with a full range of body styles including the Rancharo or a convertible. The two coupe version could be an entry level model with the "B" pillar behind the drivers door or the high trim  pillar-less two door hard top-looking a lot like the convertible shown here. Standard equipment engine this year is a K code 289, but there is a six cylinder on the option sheet and a 390 CID FE V8 for the power option. Mid-year the R-code 427  coupled to a four speed manual transmission is added to the  options sheet as well.

Chevrolet Corvette 1965 images

The G2 Chevrolet Corvette were assembled 1963 to 1967 inclusively and these now take on the name "Stingray". The "Vette” body is subtly more refined this year, the braking has been improved, the smaller engines are all delivering more and the larger 396 is also on the table by mid-year,  putting the Stingray in a class of its own. The 327 is available with a Rochester injection system-which delivers 375 hp, at an added cost of $538.00, but for 50 bucks less you could option the 396 putting out 425 hp. There were only 771 of the fuel injected 327 engines turned out by the factory that year. The low sales mean the Corvette would not have an injected engine on the options list again for another 18 years.
