badging on the 116-inch Fairlane, packed with a choice of single-four-barrel 410-horsepower
or dual-quad 425 horsepower R-Code 427 wedges.
Ford was having an incredible year in 1967 on the motorsports scene with its GT40, Shelby Cobra and Mustang road racecars and drag racing 427 Super/Stock Fairlanes. In order to run in Super/Stock, Ford had to offer 427 Fairlanes to the public. And they did. Some of the top
drag racers, like Ed Terry, Bill Ireland, Don McCain, Hubert Platt and Jerry Harvey
campaigned hard-charging Super/Stock Fairlanes.
The 427 Fairlane featured here has an extensive drag racing history and just 2,877 miles on its odometer. It’s powered by a period and date-correct replacement R-Code 427/425
hooked up to a four-speed “top-loader.” Finished in Candy Apple Red with a black interior,
it was restored two years ago and has been stored in a climate-controlled facility. It will cross the block at the Auctions America Auburn Spring auction, May 9-11, 2013.
