Nice Score - 67 Fairlane 390 GT
#1
Looks like I may have the chance to make a really nice score: a '67 Fairlane GT with a 390 4V motor. It's in pretty straight shape, even drivable with a bit of rust repair. The best thing is the motor has less than 1k miles on it after a total rebuild, including roller cam & rockers, that sort of thing. The FE engines make great power pretty fast. And the nice thing is, the car's VIN has been researched and it's a genuine 390 GT. Meaning standard power front disks, power steering, bucket seats, nice trim package etc..

My wife owned a '65 Fairlane 500 when we got married and I had a '65 Galaxie. So, this car, while not a '65, is close enough, plus it's a REALLY hot car when you get 'em fixed up.

Should go nicely in the stable next to my '71 Mach.

Nice cars. I agree, that should be a nice addition to the stable.

Post some pictures if you are able to purchase it.

Well, I bought the car this week. And I have to say, my first impression is WOW!!!! All the parts are there, including a bunch scavenged from another wrecked 67 Fairlane. This car is STRAIGHT. It lived all its life in Pueblo, CO and Pahrumph, NV. Both hot and dry climates, so almost no rust. The cool thing is the original owner's manual is still there, including the date of purchase, address of the original buyer, etc..

I haven't checked out the rear undercarriage yet, as I'm towing the car home this weekend. But basically, the vehicle is ready for paint. Front suspension, steering components all totally rebuilt rebuilt. Front clip prepared & painted already. Turns out the car had a vinyl roof originally, but all the trim for that is still there (MAJOR bonus). A pair of used but VERY nice NOS front fenders already in primer. Only 2 rust spots I saw: one on the passenger-side footboard and on on the passenger side door. Both are about the size of a quarter is all. All I have to do is add an interior, get the paint on, and reassemble it. That's it. A steal, and I can't WAIT to get it on the road!
