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.
