1967 Ford Fairlane 500 in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Full-sized performance was still spelled Fairlane in 1967. This beautifully presented 67 Fairlane 500 hardtop offers more space inside than a comparable Mustang, a more formidable presence on the road, and just as much performance from its 302 cubic inch / br / Refinished not too long ago back to its original code 8 Springtime Yellow, this striking Fairlane conceals its size with great styling that dominated the NASCAR tracks in the mid-1960s. Even the factory called it a fastback, although its hardtop profile is more traditional than the name would imply. The paint job shows extremely well today and if youre interested in taking it up a notch, a professional wet sand and buff would make a difference here, although we dont really think its necessary. They didnt take any liberties during the restoration, either, so all the original badges, emblems, and trim pieces went back on as soon as the fresh paint was cured and buffed, and the chrome bumpers are so good that I have to believe that they have been restored. All the glass is very good, including the impossible to replace rear window, which remains nice and clear, and the vinyl top is brand new and looks fantastic. Frankly, its more than a little unusual to find a Fairlane this well preserved and restored to original / br / The preservation and quality continues inside, where an original-style black vinyl interior provides brilliant contrast to the exterior paint. Its likely that even the door panels are original, and if thats the case, the car must have been quite nice prior to the restoration. Sure, there are some slight signs of wear (its 50 years old, after all) but when original stuff looks this good, you know a car has led an easy life. The factory gauges only covered the basics, so the instrument panel is clean and uncluttered, and with a column shifter for the C4 3-speed automatic transmission, theres plenty of room up front. That Art Deco steering wheel is probably the original piece, but its not cracked or broken, so it feels great in the hands of the driver. The original AM radio is still in the dash, but it has been supplanted by a newer AM/FM/Cassette stereo thats mounted inside the glove box. Out back the spacious trunk is outfitted with a carpeted mat and a proper spare / br / The C code 289 under the hood was standard equipment, but its reported to have been swapped out with a 302 V8 that lives in the engine bay now. And because the Fairlane hardtop was still fairly light for a full-size car, performance is responsive and lively. Nicely detailed and looking very much the way the factory intended, it starts almost as quickly as you can turn the key, and has a great small block Ford idle that is easy to love. Bright Ford Blue paint covers the engine as it did when it was new, but additions include bright chrome valve covers and a chrome open-element air cleaner, both from the GT but nobodys going to complain. It has also been upgraded with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Victor Jr. aluminum intake, delivering reliable performance with a great V8 soundtrack delivered by a longtube header-fed Flowmaster dual exhaust system. A C4 3-speed automatic is a willing dance partner, with crisp downshifts and imperceptible upshifts, and the bulletproof 9-inch rear with highway-friendly 3.10 gears will outlive us all. Power brakes deliver reliable stopping power, and live behind stock Mag wheels wearing 225/60/14 Cooper Cobra blackwall / br / Think of the Fairlane as Fords version of the Chevelle, and youll understand why this car is so cool. A great combination of originality and colors, its the anti-Mustang thats ready to cruise. Call today!br / br / *This car has a rebuilt salvage title brand issued in 2015 by NJ on a clear Texas
