In 1967, the Ford Motor Company produced nearly a quarter of a million Ford Fairlanes; 4 door sedans, 2 door hard tops, some base level convertibles... a lot of cars. Yet of all of those mostly tame and somewhat basic means of transportation, 2,117 were actually GT convertibles and only the cool guys and girls had ‘em. Rarer still were only a few hundred that were were equipped with the top dog 390 V8 and 4 speed manual transmission. Those must’ve been ordered by the especially cool guys and girls!
Meet “Rag Doll”, my beautifully restored 1967 Ford Fairlane GT 390 4 speed Convertible Gold Award winner at the National Fairlane Club of America meet in Lexington, Kentucky. Dressed from the factory built in Lorain Ohio on September 13, 1966 in Candy apple Red with black vinyl interior, this power steering, power brake car has a power operated white convertible top with a glass backlite, styled steel road wheels and F70-14 Firestone raised white letter radials. I dare you to find one better!
