For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c6xltz8 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".
Wrecks to Riches | S02E03 | Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt
When it comes to cars, Barry's mind is never far away from the drag strip. He's now set his staff to finding a '64 Fairlane to become nothing less than a Thunderbolt. What plans: a 427 V-8 engine, fibreglass hood, over-sized rears and racing seats, and it will be street-legal. Everyone's excited, including his regular parts suppliers. Two guys from O'Reilly's turn up to pitch in for the build. It's a laugh a minute as they verbally wrestle Barry about who knows best. And there's more; rather than risk an open auction as usual, Barry's going to start his own... at the Speed Shop! Barry, Becky and Chris hope to round up some high-rollers to duke it out in the bidding. Barry's DIY auction is a first. But if he can convert his building skills into entrepreneurship he stands a chance. And there's no commission! Becky and Jen become event managers, a first for both. Will they have to block off the street? Who's doing the catering? What about parking? Permits? Auctioneer? The event snowballs into a logistics nightmare. And there's another wildcard; paint and body guy Tony starts thinking he might just bid for the Thunderbolt himself! Barry has no idea. This could be their most eventful auction yet.
