1967 Gulf Fairlane

by Michael Satterfield

Last year for the SEMA show I had the idea of building a car to celebrate my companies involvement with Gulf Oil. The result was this car, a 1967 Ford Fairlane, and this is the first real photoshoot I have done with the car myself. 

It all started when a guy was shouting out at the gate by my studio, I came out to see what was going on and he greeted me with "Are you the guy that buys old cars?" I asked him what he had and what he wanted for it the next day we were hauling the Fairlane out of a backyard in Chino. 

Today the car has a 427ci big block backed up by a Tremec T600, 4 wheel disc by Stainless Steel Disc Brakes with a booster by Master Power bring everything to a stop. Eaton Springs helped get the stance just right, and Interior was done to our specifications by TMI products.

For that proper old school look Cragar 500 Eliminators were chosen and wrapped up in Goodyear Eagle Tires. The team over at Bare Bones Custom Paint took my drawings from paper and made it a reality. The best thing about working on a classic American car is almost everything is available from vendors like Scott Drake or Auto Krafters. We also got some help modernizing the car from Dakota Digital, Perma Cool, and Champion Cooling Systems. 

Look for the Fairlane at a show near you and our upcoming video.
