1967 Ford Fairlane GT 390 V8

With relatively low production numbers, this 1967 Ford Fairlane GTA in Nightmist Blue isn’t something you see very often.

The mid-sized Fairlane was completely revamped for 1966 taking styling cues from the full-size models. It was the year that we first saw the GT models. For 1967 the body remained the same but there were changes to the grille.

Identification of the GT included special body striping and identification badges (with the automatic transmission cars using a GT-A badge) and a tachometer. The cars were also equipped with front disc brakes.

Inside, the GT also came equipped with all vinyl, deep-cushioned bucket seats.

While the Fairlane GT came standard with a Challenger 289 V8 delivering 200 horsepower. However, this car was purchased with 325 horsepower 390 cubic inch V8 with 4-barrel carburetor. This would have cost the original owner an additional $341 with the 4-speed manual transmission that it’s paired with.

The base price for the Fairlane GT was $2,839 which included the 289 V8 engine and 3-speed manual transmission. To get a Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission it would have cost a further $188.

Ford produced 18,670 Fairlane GT 2-door hardtops during the 1967 model year. Of these, 15,196 were purchased with the 390 big-block. 6,303 of them were fitted with a manual transmission and 8,893 were automatic.

  1. While I was away from home on an overseas military assignment my wife purchased a 1967 Ford Fairlane GT convertible. It was a 4speed with the 390. When I came home and drove it I was getting rubber in 3rd gear! I took it to my local mechanic for a tune up. He told me the OEM heads had been replaced with 427 heads and that it had a 457 rear end. That car was awesome to drive!
