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. Was
a couple of time stickers from bison drag ways and key stone drag ways.
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
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
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. If you're looking for a different kind of
muscle car, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!
1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
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!

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.

is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
