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

65 fairlane headers
this is the result of a holiday weekends work building my own custom
headers for my 1965 fairlane. It is a 289 with power steering and column c4
auto. i had looked for headers for this application and no one made them to
suit my car. so i made some really tight donut bends on a spinning machine
and i set to work making these things. it is 1 5/8" primaries going into 3"
collectors. all the pipe is 16g and is hand formed using a pear mallet on a
hardwood block. the old way!! fully tig welded with a bit of mig on the
inside of the collectors. they fit a treat and go in place as easy as the
video shows. i will need to wrap them as the are pretty close to the paint

Getting My 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 Ready for Its First Car Show!
My girlfriend Christal decided to make her first video ever for youtube! :D
This was filmed at the end of summer this year before it was time to head
back to pharmacy school. Got caught in a little rain at the end but it was
an awesome time! She showed a lot of the processes I took before and
during the actual show as well as some of the things I was replacing and
installing at the time. I've done SO MUCH MORE stuff to it since, it's
almost done being restored to my standards and I can't wait to show you all
the final product!!! Hope you all enjoy this personal video of ours and
stay tuned for more fairlane updates!!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #56: 1966 Ford Fairlane 427 Lightweight
What happens when you mix a lightweight body with a high-powered 427?
Ford set out to find out with this 1966 Fairlane, and the results were
awesome. This Fairlane does not look like anything special, being
completely devoid of racy looking stripes or fancy trim, but the giveaway
is the scooped lift-off hood and the discreet 427 badges on the fenders.
This car is boasting lightweight aluminum and fiberglass panels from
front to back, and has been assembled without creature comforts inside.
However, it was fitted with the R-Code dual 4-barrel side-oiler 427, a 425
HP race engine for the street. The R-Code rumbles thanks to the high
compression pistons and lumpy cam, and the 4-speed manual box and 3.89
gears help it get out of the hole. Which is what this car was designed
to do, in the form of Super Stock drag racing. Ford only built 57 of
these in 1966, and this one lives among many other unique and
low-production factory racers in the Brothers Collection.

1968 FORD FAIRLANE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER VOLTAGE REGULATOR
Ok.. First I need to say that I wound up using a 7808 VR Chip set which has
an 8V output and not the 7805. IC Chipset values are 7805, 7806, 7808, and
7812. 5v, 6v, 8v, and then 12v. I used the 7808 and it is working great.
For those wanting to do so, you may wish to try the 7806 6v chip set and
see what results you get. Let me know.. Anyway.. Here we have a 1968 Ford
Fairlane 500 SC with the 302V8. Problem is with the fuel gauge not
registering properly. When the tank is full, the gauge would show way over
full or past the F mark, and when the gauge was around half it meant you
were close to empty. Replaced the Tank Sending unit thinking that was the
problem. Used a Mustang
Sending unit as it was the same and cost only around 30 bucks or so.. After
replacing it, the problem was identical. So.. I investigated further and
found that old Fords used 6V gauges and FORD installed a VR to step down or
fool the gauges into thinking the voltage applied was 6V and not 12V.
These old VR are simple and bi mteallac which causes a pulsing 12V . For
you engineers out there, the old 1/2Vp over Pi thing. Needless to say, it
is more of a square wave and not a true 6v dc. The fix is to use the 7808
VR chip. Out put of this chip is 8v 1A but under loading, it comes down
some at the gauges and works great and is very reliable. The Fuel gauge is
simply a volt meter so it is important to have proper resistance from the
sending unit and proper voltage applied to the gauges. I tried the 7805,
but the 5.2V out was much to low to make gauges function properly. The 7808
is the way to go. The Video is to show how to solder up the parts and
connections and then install. Total cost for everything is less than 10
bucks. Thanks for looking and go to www.thatsdax.com for more..
