I have a 67 Fairlane originally a 289 automatic, gonna be FE with tunnel wedge.
What throttle linkage will I need?
Is the bell crank on the firewall the same, do I modify or is there a bolt on solution (hehe, bolt-on makes me nervous)?

My 66 was a 289 C4 and I am using the one that came with it. I see no reason why you can't do the same. I have a top loader so a C6 may need the correct one if different.

67 throttle linkage

I have had the original 289 with a 2100. Then a 4100, then a Holley, then some 351Cs with various short, tall, other, intakes and carbs and currently a 302 with a tunnel ram and dual Edelbrock 600s. In all that, the original bell crank and gas pedal has been used with many and varied home brew linkages. I consider it a fun challenge to get the next new thing hooked up and operational. With some 1/4" steel rod, some 1/4-20 or 1/4-28 dies, some 1/4 rod ends and lock nuts, various 1/4 bolts, socket head cap screws, washers and bushings you can make anything work.

No and yes.

Tunnel wedge does not have provision for the hokey to and fro linkage and stand. The throttle pedal assembly can be used but after that you will need an accelerator rod to connect to the 2 x 4 bellcrank.
