1ST Test Session
This is the first Test Session on Melissa DeVito's '65 Ford Falcon. We were not disappointed with the results, although we discovered a bug in the carburator. Our best time was 8.42@82mph. We will return to the strip next weekend hopefully with the bugs worked out and Mel in the driver seat.

1964 Ford M/T Thunderbolt 427 Hemi Bolt
This is a 1964 Ford Thunderbolt Fairlane, this car was built by Mickey Thompson, it is #10, raced by Jess Tyre back in 1964 with Mickey Thompson. This is a video shot for Skyline Ford of Salem, Oregon who owned the car. I sold it for them to a gentleman down in California in 2008. It was found out while my friends owned it here in Salem, that this car though retains a lot of the orignal parts from the original Thunderbolt, that it had been Rebodied, which means that the shell is from a different car. So anyone who comes into contact with it, should know that it is very valuable but is considered a rebodied Thunderbolt. Jess Tyre will tell you that it is the original car, he looked at it a few years ago and documented. He is incorrect in our opinion because we talked to the gentleman that restored the car, and he rebodied it around 1991. As of know this is pretty common knowledge, but just letting everyone know the story. It is running the same configuration as it did in 1964. Mickey Thompson, was building motors, out of a 427 Ford Short block, and then using Chrysler 392 Hemi Heads, and convertiing them to fit the Ford 427, and put a Cross Ram intake on the car, with Dual Carburators. This car is really mean sounding, and ran awesome. What you won't see is the video, is when I got on the street with it, and launched it down Mission Street, 1st, 2nd Gear coming to the dealership. The film guy for the commercial put the music in and cut out the good shots, darn him. You should have heard it, and I was shaking, and my clutch foot was shaking to death, what a wicked car. Thanks very much, Jason Blue Oval Ranch Inc.
