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.

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

1965 Ford Fairlane 500 289 2-door 3-spd Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Review, and Test Drive
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at my 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 289. This particular model is known as
the 2 door sedan due to the tall roofline and b-pillar, also known as a
post car. I purchased this car in February 2011 with the dream of being
able to fix up a car, restore it, and bring back to the original factory
look. I'm a huge fan of classic cars and always have been. My grandfather
"papa" instilled this in me a long time ago, as did my dad when he restored
papa's '48 ford 2 door sedan back when I was little. This car is about 90%
original and numbers matching with the original 289 cubic inch V8 (4.7L)
and the original 3 speed manual on the column. It has an custom dual Exhaust (not sure what kind as it was
already on the car when I bought it), not to mention original wheels,
chrome, door panels, headliner, etc. I bought many items for this car
because I wanted to "option it out" since it was a more "basic" fairlane
500. I will explain EVERY LITTLE detail about the car that you were
curious about and probably more than you cared to know hahaha. I basically
wanted to make this car look as it did from rolling out of the showroom, I
collected original keys, documentation, brochures, an owner's manual and
much more! I DO have the original video of this car when I first got it,
before I did ANYTHING to it here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SIbQCRt7Qw This video has been more than a
year in the making and has taken a couple months to edit and get everything
together, a ton of love and pride went into it! I hope everyone enjoys!!!!
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

67 Fairlane update and new project
Here's an update of my 67 fairlane 500, since the last video I have put
4.62:1 gears, replacing the stock 3.00:1 gears in the 8 inch, and full Exhaust, headers, H pipe, 2.5 inch pipe
through the flowmaster 40's and 2 1/4 pipe out up over the rear end, I have
also put a new tail housing on the c4 thanks to the local Exhaust shop breaking my old one...I also put
summit racing slapper bars on and a Holley single feed 600cfm 4 barrel
carb, this car is now running 15.5's in the quarter mile however it may run
quicker I never got a chance to get it dialed in...The new one I picked up
it is a 67 500 XL car, quite a bit of rust but a lot of usable parts which
I used...since this video I have swapped the buckets into the green one,
and moved my aftermarket stereo into the glove box and installed the trim
bezel out of the old one with the stock radio in it so it looks factory.
