  Encyclopedia topic: Ford Fairlane   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The Ford Fairlane was reintroduced in 1962 to contest the intermediate class, being eight inches longer than the compact Falcon (Diurnal birds of prey having long pointed powerful wings adapted for swift flight) and nearly one foot shorter than the full-size Galaxie (additional info and facts about Galaxie).
Probably at the instigation of Ford president Bunkie Knudsen (who was fired by Henry Ford II (Grandson of Henry Ford (1917-1987)) in September 1969), the Fairlane grew again in 1970, now with a 117 in³ wheelbase.
Ford introduced its 'New Edge' look to the Fairlane in February 1999, with some success, though the EA169 series (called AU colloquially) was considered a flop, allowing rival Holden (additional info and facts about Holden) to overtake the company in the sales of full-size cars.
