1967 was the first year for a Fairlane Convertible. Although popular on their own, XL and GT editions amounted to one-fifth of total Fairlane output. One of the nicest we have seen is in our showroom at Skyway Classics.
The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model that was sold between 1955 and 1970 by Ford in North America. The name is derived from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan.
Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-sized car, but became a mid-sized car from the 1962 model year.
The Fairlane was revised in 1966. The appearance was changed to match the full-sized Ford, which had been restyled in the 1965 model year. The front end featured vertically stacked dual headlights. The XL, GT, and GTA packages were introduced, as well as a convertible in 1967 to join the existing range of sedans, hardtops, and station wagons.
Minor trim changes were introduced for 1967 as the Fairlane was mildly facelifted. The 289 CID small-block became the base V8, with a 200 CID six standard, with the 390 CID optional (with either two- or four-barrel carburetor, at 275 and 320 bhp, respectively. The 427s were still available, either with a single four-barrel carburetor or dual quad carbs, developing 410 (W-code) and 425 bhp (R-code), 427s were available on XL models, but very few were built.
The notable addition for the 1967 model year was a Ranchero pickup as part of the Fairlane range (from 1960 to 1965, the Ranchero was based on the Falcon, while in 1966 it used the Fairlane platform but Falcon styling). The 1967 Fairlanes also included a number of federal government-mandated safety features, including a new energy-absorbing steering column with a large padded steering wheel hub, soft interior trim, four-way hazard flashers, a dual-chamber braking system, and shoulder belt anchors. The convertible had a tempered safety glass rear window.
Two different two-door coupe models were offered. The lower-end Fairlane Club Coupe had pillars around the rear windows, while the higher trim level was a pillarless two-door hardtop, similar to the convertible.
The front grille was a single aluminum stamping instead of the two grilles from 1966. The taillights were divided horizontally by the back-up light. The previous year, they had been vertical.
A step up from the base Fairlane was the Fairlane 500. It came equipped all the Fairlane trim plus special Fairlane 500 moldings and trim, color-keyed carpet and a choice of four nylon and vinyl upholsteries. The Fairlane 500 also had a stamped aluminum lower bodyside molding and another aluminum stamping with the Ford name located on the vertical section of the trunk lid.
Top of the line was the Fairlane 500XL Series advertised by Ford as the sporty version. This is the version we have on hand at Skyway.
The Fairlane 500XL had all the features of the 500, plus special name plagues and exterior trim, Deluxe wheel covers, bucket seats and console, red safety lights and white courtesy lights in the lower interior door panels. Six-cylinder cars could be purchased as a convertible or a hardtop coupe. V8-powered cars could be purchased as a hardtop coupe, convertible, GT Coupe, and GT Convertible. GT models came equipped with the 289 CID V8 engine rated at 200 horsepower. For the other cars, this was a $106 option. A two- and four-barrel 390 CID V8 was available. The convertible had a tempered safety glass rear window.
This sporty 1967 Fairlane XL Convertible gives you a great top-down ride, with V8 power and great looks from all who see her. If you want to ride around to car shows with the top down, this is one for you.
