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!

On Halloween 2009, Phil Featherston shattered the long held (unverified)
world record for the quarter mile Ford Thunderbolt in a flash of oil and
grit. The time was 9.23 seconds at 151mph. Special thanks to Jake and
Gerald. Video by Dave Featherston.

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,
