I'm trying to find info on whether the Fairlane will actually be going into production. I've heard talk that it will be part of the 07 line up. Anyone have news updates and how close to the concept version will it be? I'm really interested in this car and would very much like to see it happen. Thanks.

Holy Jesus! Stop now Ford! Don't bring this horrible thing to market! What is it? A minivan/crossover? Fairlane = D.O.A!!!!

My nephew picked up a 67 Fairlane in pretty nice clean condition, he's dropping a 428 CJ 4spd in it, he only paid $ 500.00 for the car too. lucked right out.

I saw the Fairlane concept at the LA auto show as well. I personally love this concept and if it is put into production the way the concept looks like, I'll see this as the sure sign of turnaround at Ford and buy its stock
I saw the concept upclose and it has features that probably would not translate into production; such as real wood trims that make the whole thing look like something out of Ikea catalogue. Ikea to me means "products with cool looking design that look dated within three months and fall apart for sure within a year." The canvas top is at least original --somehow reminds me of Ralph Lauren-- but hugely impractical. The edges were already worn and stained from touching. I guess Ford will use simple fiberglass top instead. In fact, I feel like it has enough of Range Rover design cues to make it look upscale and suv-ish. What could be better than that to beat the scary stigma attached to the minivans? I strongly believe, Fairlane, if well executed, will be a strong contender in the new segment pioneered by Pacifica and now further expanded (upward) by the R-class.

I think this is a great concept for those who have not lost their youthfulness but have many children to transport. It is a great compromise of the stylishness of the suv and minivan. I contacted ford in Oct.05 about this concept via their website and they actually wrote back saying it is in just the concept stage as we know and they have no intent of mass producing this vehicle at this time nor in the coming '07 line up however all positive and negative comments are noted and welcome.they told me that Based on the amount of comments they receive ways heavily on whether they decide to produce a concept in mass production or not so go to their website and tell them what you think also.

Being contacted by the company means jack squat!!! A few years ago I contacted Chrysler about the Dodge Razor. It was a total no brainer of a concept and I should be riding in one today but all I got from them was the same BS story Ford gave you. I even talked to a few Dodge reps at the auto show and they said everyone liked the car, yet Chrysler decided NOT to make it.
