Ford Fairlane GT/GTA
Even though it wasn’t the fastest muscle car on the market, the Fairlane GT/GTA was one of the best looking cars out there. The GT/GTA package was an optional trim level for the Fairlane 500XL model. It got the standard 289 V8 with a host of visual upgrades. If buyers chose the manual, the Fairlane became a GT.
However, if you opted for the automatic, you got the GTA badges on the side. But the most desirable option was the 390 V8 engine from the Mustang and Thunderbird. It was what provided this nice intermediate muscle with some serious power.
