“Show your stripes!” – 1967 Ford Fairlane GT magazine advertisement headline

Hemmings provides a wealth of detailed information on these Fairlanes: “… it wasn't until Ford's 1966 restyling of the midsize Fairlane lineup that it offered a GT model. (Strictly speaking, the GT was a manual-shift car; the GTA was the automatic-transmission version, following the curious European convention of advertising what kind of transmission your car had on its flanks.) The '66 was an all-new car, sporting a 116-inch wheelbase and a stacked-headlamp nose that resembled a junior-league Galaxie.

“Beneath the crisp lines of the faux-scooped hood lay Ford's formidable S-code 390GT engine: 335hp, 11.0:1 compression, and a Holley four-barrel atop 390 snarling cubic inches. Standard transmission was a three-speed stick, although a Toploader four-speed stick and a C-6 automatic were both optional. It was directly comparable to the '66 Chevelle SS396, both in power and price (five cubes, five horses and about 50 bucks in base price separated them).

“Ford engineered a number of changes into the '67 models: Front disc brakes became standard, and Ford's full array of V-8 engines was made available in the GT….”

Offered here is a fully and freshly restored 1967 Ford Fairlane GT Convertible in white over red (under a white fabric soft top). The quality of the restoration work on the car is spectacular in all respects. Completed just 302 miles back, the work returned virtually every surface and feature of the car to nearly new condition. The combination of a big-block, 390-cubic-inch Ford V8 and a 4-speed manual transmission makes the car a perfect representation of the muscle-car rage of the mid-Sixties.

The exterior white paint has been fully refreshed to a very high professional standard. Door edges, sills, and the undersides of the trunk lid and hood were all properly painted with no overspray on data tags or rubber trim pieces. The paint gloss is uniform and there are no imperfections in the finish. The red side stripes (referred to in the ad headline above) are crisp and free of fading or other damage. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The white fabric convertible top fits well and is also free of wear or damage. Chrome bumpers front and rear, the chrome grille and (stacked) headlight trim, windshield surround, door handles and side mirror all display high shine and minimal, if any patina. The brushed-metal horizontal trim piece (with Ford lettering) on the rear deck is pristine. All correct factory badging is in place, including the F-O-R-D letters across the hood, red-background “GT” emblem in the grille, “GT” badge rearward of the front fenders, F-A-I-R-L-A-N-E chrome letters on the rear fenders, and the script “Fairlane” with red-background “GT” emblem on the rear panel. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and uncracked. Factory 14-inch wheels with Ford-emblem full wheel covers are mounted with Firestone® 70-series, thin-whitewall tubeless tires.

The car's red interior is a visual delight. What's more, the condition of literally every interior is exceptional. Red-vinyl-covered door panels feature a square design with vertically pleated look and vented-look inserts surrounding the door armrest, chrome trim strips, and a “Fairlane GT” emblem. Front bucket seats (similar in design to the Mustang seats of the same era) and the rear bench seat are upholstered in red vinyl with perforated inserts and look nearly brand-new. Red vinyl covers the rear-cabin side walls. Red lap belts are installed, and dark-red carpeting cover the cabin floor. The original red, 2-spoke steering wheel with chrome horn rim frames a horizontal-design instrument panel set in the padded red dashboard. A 120-mph-speedometer, fuel gauge, and analog clock are arrayed alongside the factory AM push-button radio. Other push-pull and slide-lever operating controls are laid out across the trim piece below. The red console incorporates a circle “GT” emblem on red-white-and-blue and a horizontal red-white-and-blue emblem with Ford logo faces the front passenger. The shift lever for the 4-speed manual transmission is located on the center console. The car's trunk is perfectly clean with the floor covered in the correct-pattern vinyl mat.

Under the hood, the 390-cubic-inch Ford V8 commands a very clean and orderly engine bay. An oval, open-sided aluminum air-cleaner cover, “Powered by Ford”-embossed chrome valve covers, and the correct Ford-blue engine-block paint all add visual flair. Viewed from below, the chassis is very clean, straight, and undamaged. Rust-inhibiting coating has been applied so surface rust is negligible. The car's full-length dual-exhaust system is a focal point.

The Fairlane's factory data and identification tags remain mounted. As to authenticity, the Hemmings people noted: "All of the convertibles were produced in Lorain, Ohio; any convertible should have an H as the VIN's second character,” which is the case here.

While the more than 165 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '67 Ford Fairlane GT Convertible in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

This white-over-red, beautifully restored '67 Fairlane GT will be thestar at any get-together where the blue-oval guys congregate. As satisfying as that will be for its next owner, nothing will be able to match the experience of a summertime moonlight drive, top down, under the stars. The free-wheeling spirit of the Sixties will come alive.
