Packing a monster 390 cubic inch V8, this 1967 Ford Fairlane GTA was one of the fastest Fords on the road in the '60s and you'd better believe it still makes a stir today. But more than just a big block brute, you'll marvel at the level of originality, quality, and care that has gone into this family-friendly fast Ford.
You're looking at the face of Ford racing in the '60, and this coupe carries it perfectly. The factory-correct Y-code Dark Moss Green has been given a professional respray to keep this dark attitude at the forefront. Plus, the triple rocker stripe, GTA badges, and 390 callouts on the hood trim are all reminders of how the GTA took no prisoners on the streets. But it also is still a premium Fairlane at heart. So you get the hardtop coupe body with the bright wide bumpers and the shining grille as long as the horizon. The premium presentation is even in the details with the power domes on the hood also housing turn signal indicators.
Inside this one has received the right investments to look completely original, but feel far fresher than a car celebrating the half-century mark. Ford was creating an executive level coupe, and so this GTA has great features like bucket seats – a rarity in a large machine like this. In fact, while there is enough room to carry plenty of family and friends, this will always be a machine that focuses on the driver. That's why you have a full center console and an artful dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of the ultra-wide speedometer. In total, this classic has such a great period-correct presentation on everything from the AM radio that's still on display, to the big trunk with the correct mat, jack, and spare.
We make a big deal about the 390 cubic-inch big block V8, and so did the restorers. When you open the hood, the tidy presentation and glossy black fender walls instantly makes your eye focus on the bold blue block that looks like its radiating power from within the engine bay. Plus, the polished valve covers announce the 390 displacement as does the matching air topper with GT trim. And with all the correct decals throughout the engine bay, we could spend all day looking at this muscle car masterpiece. But more than just look at it, this one gets your heart racing as the V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority from the dual exhaust. On the road, this full package produces a true wallop of power advertised at 335 hp. Remember the “A” in GTA is for the automatic transmission. Ford's three-speed is great at providing comfort during the everyday situations, and stout enough to handle the full power when you're ready to unleash the monster motor. And you can tell from the undercarriage photos that there has been plenty invested in the suspension. Combine that with power steering and front disc brakes, and this is a true vintage executive express.
