1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
Hi! This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969 Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago, and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car, including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass. We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated" by another Fairlane sedan! Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you think! Thanks for watching!





1964 Ford Fairlane 2 Door Post Barn Find
Ex drag car from the 60's. Ran at key stone drag way. Parked in a barn in the early 70's. Looks like a thunderbolt because back half the car has been narrowed the way ford did it in 64. Stock frame rails and trunk. I thought the car was a thunderbolt when first found. Serial number comes up as a 6 cylinder 3 speed standard bench car.Car has 330000 orginal miles and orginal paint. I dont not know what the car had in it for a motor when it was raced. When i found the car was no motor and a tranny in the trunk.

Stock Model A 28 second quarter mile
A sock model A does bracket racing. Easily the slowest car of the day. He got knocked out this race but he had won the one before it. It had to be a little embarrassing to lose to a car this slow.





Ford Fairlanes Being Built
Inside the factory where the fourth generations of Ford Fairlanes are being built. Probably at the Lorain, Ohio assembly plant. Welding, and lead applied to round out the curves. They're painted, the engines installed, glass goes one, water tested, headlights aimed and out to the car hauler they go. We see a well dressed couple looking at a Fairlane. he Fairlane name was moved to Ford's new intermediate, introduced for the 1962 model year, to bridge the gap between the compact Ford Falcon and the full-sized Galaxie, making it a competitor for GM's A-body 'senior compacts'. With an overall length of 197 in (5004 mm) and a wheelbase of 115.5 in (2934 mm), it was 16 in (406 mm) longer than the Falcon and 12.3 in (312 mm) shorter than the Galaxie. Like the Falcon, the Fairlane had a unibody frame, but the body incorporated an unusual feature Ford dubbed 'torque boxes', four boxed structures in the lower body structure designed to absorb road shock by moving slightly in the vertical plane. Suspension was a conventional short-long arm independent arrangement in front, with Hotchkiss drive in the rear. The Fairlane was initially offered only in two-door or four-door sedan body styles.

134589 / 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/khp7qsp This stunning Ford Thunderbolt, a true to form replica that follows a lightweight fiberglass front clip with a built 427, tough Toploader transmission and beefy Currie 9-inch, is about as cool as they come. If you're in the market for some instantly recognizable muscle that's stacked with first class looks and a nasty disposition, you're reading about your next car! A series of 100 units produced for the 1964 model year, The Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt was an experimental, drag race only automobile that combined lightweight Fairlane bodies with dual-quad Galaxie motors. Although the Galaxie had proven itself in NASCAR, it was simply too heavy to be drag raced with any significant success. After Ford had stripped the car into a semi-victorious 'lightweight', they decided to apply the same formula to the Fairlane. The result was a storied track champion that, when compared to the Galaxie, was 3 inches shorter, weighed 700 pounds less and unofficially produced over 600 horsepower. Not surprisingly, this awesome Fairlane drove out of Ford's Dearborn assembly plant at the beginning of the great American performance wars. After spending a short time as random showroom candy, it began a long life of solid maintenance and back road workout routines. And today, covered in a familiar coat of Vintage Burgundy two-stage, it sits as the beneficiary of a thorough, frame-off restoration that was conducted on solid, original bones. Pull the car into the harsh winter sun and you'll see good looking paintwork that presents well from every angle. Underneath that paint, the body's Kansas-flat panels say a lot about the integrity of their platform. And overall, that platform's alignment rates well above anything the factory offered, featuring even gaps and tight closing hinges all the way around. When Dearborn brass decided to shove beefy big blocks into mid-size Fairlanes, they probably had a hard time keeping a straight face. And, when you get behind the wheel of this new age Thunderbolt, you'll understand exactly why. Unpin the hood and you'll find a show-detailed Ford V8 that's been bored and stroked to 482 cubic inches of raw, big block power! Take a peek under the car and you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis that's punctuated by Satin Black floors and, in traditional Thunderbolt fashion, a substantially re-engineered suspension. At the center of that suspension, a road-ready Toploader 4-speed proves just as effective as ever at slinging gears and scorching stoplights. That transmission channels power to a 9-inch Currie rear end, which exchanges a brutal 4.58 factory set up for mild, 3.55 cruisers. There's a rebuilt steering system that combines with manual front disc and rear drum brakes to make turns easy and stopping a cinch. And torque meets the pavement through polished Radir Tri-Ribb IIIs, which spin 6.40-15 Firestone Deluxe Champions in front of 7.75-15 Radir Cheater Slicks. Between the standard steel doors, a Light Beige Metallic interior strikes a nice balance of authenticity and livability. While the lightweight bucket and bench seats may not look like the lap of luxury, a brief stint behind the wheel reveals a comfortable and compliant ride. Correct rubber flooring frames a correct chrome shifter. The dash is stock, hanging factory telemetry and correct deletes between a big tachometer, a small Auto Meter oil gauge and a correct glove box disclaimer tag. And in front of the driver, an ornate factory steering wheel provides a touch of class. There simply aren't that many chances to own a clean, well-done Thunderbolt -- especially at this price.
