RealRides of WNY # 2277 - 1967 Fairlane

Notes on a recently seen 1967 Ford Fairlane 500:

  • The mid-body side trim appears to be from a base model Fairlane, while the lower trim is Fairlane 500.
  • If it is indeed a Fairlane 500, the trunk lid is missing the chrome piece which spans the space between the taillights.
  • What looks like the 3M adhesive left over from the missing “Fairlane 500” badge on the trunk lid doesn’t seem to match the shape of the badge which was used for model year 1967; it does, however, resemble the 1963 model’s front fender badge (see below).
  • Rims are certainly easy to change, and the ones on today’s RealRide look like they’re from a 1969 Mustang.

All of that being said, I love this car, and was glad to find it in the spectators’ parking area at this year’s Fathers Day Car Show at the Dairy Queen in Eden. (Actually it was at the show’s overflow lot up the road at Eden Elementary School.)
