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!

1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner 428 cu-in Dual-Quad 4-Speed
This is a video of my 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner. I explain the

Stampede Inc of Hollywood, FL.
The engine is a 428 cubic inch FE (Ford Edsel) block. It's also outfitted
with Edelbrock aluminium heads, a Comp solid roller cam, and a dual quad
tunnel wedge intake manifold. Powerful? Yes.
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,

Firing up the 64 Fairlane.
It hasn't been started since March of this year. But the big block started
right up like its no big deal. Had this car for a long time , bought it
when I was 18, Drove in stock form back and forth to work in the eighties,
then started working on it and street raced it in the late eighties to
early nineties. In 93 I back halfed it, then started bracket racing at the
strip.In 2000, I built the front clip, and switched to big block. Me and
this car have seen a lot of fun together.
1965 AFX 427 SOHC test drive.wmv
Just a quick update on the car.For the most part finished, just a couple
little things.Heres a walk around and a bit of a Test drive. This actually
is the first time Ive driven it down the road.Weather and Holidays so,
Merry X-Mas to me. It was awesome so far no issues exept those Pie crust
slicks just spin all the time. Barely get on the throttle and they spin.
AWESOME Perfect street car other than I think i just went through 2 gallons
of Fuel to do this Video.
