The 1967 Ford Fairlane 500 was a mid-sized car model that played a significant role in Ford’s lineup during the late 1960s. It was part of the Fairlane series, which was introduced in 1955 as Ford’s response to the growing demand for mid-sized vehicles. The Fairlane 500 was one of the higher trim levels within this series, known for its blend of style, performance, and comfort blend.
The 1967 Fairlane 500 featured a distinctive and attractive exterior design that was typical of the era. It had a boxy yet sleek body profile with clean lines and a slightly curved roofline. A wide, horizontal grille with a prominent center divider and chrome accents characterized the front end. The headlight arrangement was dual, with two circular headlights on each side. The rear end of the car featured horizontal taillights that stretched across the width of the vehicle, giving it a balanced and modern look.
The Fairlane 500 was available in various body styles, including a two-door hardtop, two-door convertible, four-door sedan, and four-door station wagon. The 2-door hardtop variant, often considered the sportiest of the lineup, was popular among enthusiasts for its stylish appeal and potential for performance modifications.
The 1967 Fairlane 500 offered a range of engine options to cater to different performance preferences. Some of the available engines included:
- 289 cubic inch (4.7-liter) V8 engine
- 390 cubic inch (6.4-liter) V8 engine
- 427 cubic inch (7.0-liter) V8 engine
These engine options provided varying levels of power and performance, allowing buyers to choose the level of performance that suited their driving style.
Transmission options included both manual and automatic transmissions, adding to the customization options available to buyers. The Fairlane 500 could be equipped with either a 3-speed manual, 4-speed manual, or 3-speed automatic transmission, depending on the engine choice.
Inside, the Fairlane 500 offered a comfortable and well-appointed cabin. Depending on the chosen configuration, the interior featured either a standard bench or optional bucket seats with ample space for passengers. The dashboard layout was clean and functional, with clear instrumentation and controls. Optional features included air conditioning, power windows, and other comfort and convenience upgrades.
The 1967 Fairlane 500 was praised for its balanced handling, performance options, and comfortable ride quality. It was considered a versatile car that could be used for daily driving, weekend cruising, or even drag racing with the more powerful engine options.
The Fairlane 500 contributed to Ford’s success during the late 1960s, providing a combination of style, performance, and affordability that appealed to a broad range of consumers. Its design and features are remembered as emblematic of the era’s automotive aesthetics, and well-preserved examples of this model are cherished by collectors and enthusiasts alike.
The seller informs us that their 1967 Fairlane 500 benefitted from a repaint using a Lexus white pearl color. The car features new drum brakes and tires all around. This Fairlane features a rebuilt front suspension.
The seller notes that their 1967 Fairlane left the factory with a 289 cubic inch V8. The seller replaced that small block Ford with a rebuild 390 cubic inch V8 that he estimates has only two thousand miles on it. In addition to a four-barrel carburetor, the rebuilt 390 features a mild cam and headers designed to help the motor breathe better. As a trade-off to make room for the headers, the seller removed the factory hydraulic steering unit, but he notes that electric conversion kits are available should a buyer want to add power steering back to the car.
Transferring power from the 390 cubic inch V8 is a Ford C6 automatic transmission controlled by a floor-mounted B&M aftermarket shifter. A 3:08 equipped rear axle featuring a Yukon Gear & Axle Traction-Loc (Positraction) unit puts the power down evenly on the pavement.
