Hi, I too have a '67 Fairlane 4 door. Here are a few resources to try.

Woody's Fairlane Site!

1962-70 Ford Fairlane & 1968-71 Torino Parts at MACs Antique Auto Parts

Centrally located right here in the heart of Oklahoma

Home - Fairlane Club of America

Ebay is a good place for manuals and several good factory assembly type manuals.
And, of course, this very site can be the source of tons of info/opinions/help with just about anything.

There are tons of parts out there both re-pops, NOS and used. The trim is something you are probably going to have to find used. Your nearest Ford dealer can help too. 67Fairlane 4dr gave you a good start, but do an internet search. Ebay can be helpful. If you get stuck on trim, send me a PM and I can share a resource with you.

As for lead substitute, I'd go to you nearest discount auto parts. If they don't have it they can get it.

welcome aboard, i just sold my 4 dr. I've had great experience with Desert Valley Auto Parts located in Arizona. Also i relied on Mac's auto parts out of lockport NY a bunch plus rockauto.com was a big help. Do yourself a favor and jump on ebay or amazon and buy the 1967 fairlane shop manual for around $50. Otherwise this is a great site and you will find tons of info and help from all the great ford family members that share this site. Good luck and don't be afraid to ask questions

What kind of trim are you looking for?

Trim in particular that I am looking for is the Headlight Bezel / door, which nobody makes and are getting pricey on eBay.... the 66 is easy to find, but not the 67.

I am also going to need body chrome / trim in places, or to re-work the stuff that is there... as the elderly lady who owned the car before me had some difficulty getting in and out of the garage ... (at least this car was in the garage, not the pasture or barn)

The 66s are repopped, though not very well. The 67 can be repaired if they are not cracked too bad. As I said, PM me if you want a contact for trim.
