John Calvert's Fairlane on the street
Took the Fairlane out for a Sunday cruise and hit up the local car show. It
has a 427cu dual quad high riser FE with 15:1 compression. The car runs in
NHRA A/S Stock Eliminator and has a best ET of 9.80. Enjoy!

1962 Ford Thunderbolt style Fairlane 500 390 FE GT500 heads Dual Carbs Four Speed
This 1962 Ford Fairlane, done with the Thunderbolt style, offers a 390 CID
V8 engine backed by a four-speed manual transmission. The engine has only
1200 miles since it was rebuilt and is equipped with sealed power pistons,
reconditioned rods, polished crank, GT500 iron heads, Ford factory dual
quad intake and carburetors, Competition Cams hydraulic camshaft and timing
set, and Pentronix ignition. It's equipped with a fiberglass teardrop
style hood, fiberglass fenders, and fiberglass bumpers. The interior has
been restored and is in great shape. Here is a little information on what
the car offers: fiberglass fenders, fiberglass bumpers. It's also equipped
with Crites headers, 3" Exhaust,
aluminum radiator, a vintage Hurst shifter, and a Thunderbolt traction bar
setup. This car is set up so it would be period correct and looks as it
would have in the early sixties! Thanks for taking a look!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

Have you ever seen a "tribute" car that's more authentic that the "real
thing"? We haven't seen many, but this 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt
certainly could make a claim to the title. Built with more "real"
Thunderbolt parts than most "real" Thunderbolts, including a real-deal
Holman & Moody 427 side-oiler, this is the ideal car for the Ford fanatic
seeking a Thunderbolt that can be driven and shown with pride. Or, if
you've got a Thunderbolt, but don't have the incredibly pricey "real"
engine, this car could be the link to making your car "correct".
