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!

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 next car! 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 around. 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.

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.

132894 / 1969 Ford Mustang
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/88qcj7e This sinister 1969 Mustang pro-tourer is a take-no-prisoners muscle car which is ready to compete, drive or race anytime and anywhere! All of this Mustangs solid panels were stripped to bare metal and thoroughly worked to transform it from a nice piece of machinery into a trophy winning piece of art. Once that canvas was as close to perfect as possible, and displayed excellent fit and finish, a dynamic coat of Raven Black urethane was expertly applied, sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell and buffed to a fantastic shine. Pull the pins on this awesome Mustangs solid steel hood and you'll find an 800 horsepower, 557 cubic inch Jon Kaase V8 which twists out 750 lb./ft. of torque and wears some of the best aftermarket components on the planet. At the top of the engine, a bright blue air cleaner feeds a chrome 1050cfm Holley carburetor through a K&N reusable filter which sits just inside the cars fully functional hood scoop. Below that carburetor, a silver powder coated Jon Kaase alloy intake is bolted between Kaase Boss 9 aluminum heads which have been fitted with silver powder coated "Boss 557" valve covers and finished with chrome K&N crankcase breathers. Below those heads, 10.4 to 1 pistons combine with a roller cam to create explosive combustion; and in front of those heads, a reliable points distributor sends fire through blue Jon Kaase racing wires which have been fitted with MSD end caps. At the sides of the block, custom 2.25 inch Metalcrafters ceramic coated headers send vaporized dinosaurs into a brutal sounding Exhaust system. And at the front of the block, a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine system spins a chrome alternator and a high performance aluminum water pump behind a full array of billet pulleys and a proven Be Cool aluminum radiator. Behind the big 557, a fresh Tremec TKO500 5-speed manual transmission turns a traditional nine inch Ford rear end which has been equipped with a Detroit Locker center section, a Fab 9 housing and seat bending 3.90 gears. Holding that driveline off the ground is a Heidts front and rear suspension which includes polished tubular control arms and polished tie rod ends up front, polished coil over shocks at all four corners, and Raven Black sway bars at both ends of the car. After Metalcrafters installed the suspension, they stiffened the frame by grafting Heidts subframe connectors into the floor; and fabricated a custom Exhaust system which sends spent gases from a ceramic coated H-pipe to either polished Dynomax mufflers with ceramic coated tail pipes or electronically activated cut outs. Step on the throttle and a polished fuel tank supplies gas to a finned electric fuel pump and fresh stainless fuel lines. Step on the brakes and four wheel electronically assisted Wilwood power discs provide serious resistance for the serious motor. All that stop and go flows through 15 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels that are wrapped in 215/70 front and 275/60 rear BF Goodrich Radial T/As. Peer inside this awesome '69 Mustang and you'll find a black and silver interior that is, like the rest of the car, an exceptional mix of both vintage and modern pieces. The seats are thick units which wear traditional Clarion Knit covers under two piece racing belts. And the like-new dual cowl dash holds a custom silver instrument panel with a full assortment of Auto Meter Phantom gauges above an MP3 compatible Sony Xplod CD player. Below the dash, a custom black and silver center console, courtesy of the guys at Metalcrafters, holds a traditional chrome Hurst shifter between Auto Meter auxiliary gauges and switches for the cars power windows. And above the seats, a heavy duty vinyl headliner hangs over a solid Metalcrafters roll bar which runs from the kick panels all the way to the rear hatch. In front of the driver, a chrome Grant GT steering wheel is bolted to a tilt steering column which is complete with a billet aluminum hub and billet stalks. And Behind the cockpit, Infinity Kappa speakers hang over a custom upholstered trunk which displays a cool satin finished "Boss 557" motif. Stunning to look at, thrilling to drive, and exceptional to show, this 1969 Mustang is a timeless state-of-the-art pro tourer that will draw crowds for years!
