In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll turn back the clock to 1969. A time when the Concorde made its first trial flight, Richard Nixon is inaugurated as President, and Mario Andretti wins the Indianapolis 500. 1969 was also a time when budget muscle cars were gaining in popularity.

The suits in Dearborn were not happy. Across town, John DeLorean and his cronies had started a phenomenon a couple years earlier that had taken over America like wildfire.

The Blue Oval guys packed a 390-cubic-inch V8 into a Fairlane, added racing stripes, and served it up as a hardtop or convertible. Dubbed the GT, this version of the Fairlane had what it needed to go tiger hunting. But did it pack enough ammo? Let’s find out.
