FCA was formed in early 1981 by Glenn D. Packard to share information about 1963 to 1965 Fairlane cars with High Performance 289 4V engines. The Club is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and enjoyment of 1962-76 Fairlane/Torino cars, and Mercury equivalents. We show no favoritism or prejudice between driver cars, modified cars, original cars, restored cars, or concourse cars. All are equally welcomed and appreciated. The majority of Fairlane/Torino owners modify their cars in some way to accommodate their personal tastes. These cars were meant to be driven and most are. We are very laid back and enjoy sharing the experience we have with our cars with other club members.
Membership has grown from about 25 when the club was first formed, to over 3,000 today. Membership is nicely distributed among all car group divisions represented in the club. Members reside in every state in the U.S., and numerous foreign countries.
Current yearly club dues for new members are $35 in the U.S. For more information please contact our local representative and or check our website.
We publish a bi-monthly (every two months) club magazine, titled Fairlaner, that is normally 48 pages in full color.
Once each year FCA holds a National Meet. Our club also encourages local Mini-Meets hosted by Fairlane Club members. The California FCA holds a yearly meet at different locations in the State. Bakersfield was chosen at the site of a FCA Mini-Meet 4 times in the last 11 years. We are open to holding a events in conjunction with other clubs’ meets.
