One of only 43 built, these TL series fairlanes are very special cars, and this one sold at Lloyds Auctoins in SA for just $13,000 - although the ks are fairly high and the trim is quite worn out as shown the images. The AU Fairlane is one of our favourite Fairlanes and was deliberately designed to look very different to its AU Falcon SWB sibling. Part of the reason for this was that the previous generation NL Fairlane was criticised for being too similar to the EL Falcon. This certainly worked in the AU Fairlane's favour, and the AU Fairlanes look very regal and lincoln like - something that I think was lost a bit in the BA/BF Fairlanes where the budget was clearly spent on the Falcon, leaving nothing left for styling changes to the BF Fairlane.
The TL series is of course the high end enhanced performance version of the Fairlane, and really the successor to the NL FBT (Fairland by Tickford) - although the AU was sold in even fewer numbers. Timeless looking cars these Fairlanes, very classic, and someone got a bargain here at Lloyds Auction.
