Fairlane Thunderbolt Clone


Fairlane Thunderbolt Clone



This 1964 Ford Fairlane is a two-door sedan model that was built as a tribute to the factory Thunderbolt experimental drag race cars produced by Ford for the 1964 model year. The car is finished in white over beige vinyl upholstery and powered by a 427ci side-oiler V8 paired with a Ford C6 three-speed automatic transmission. Features include a fiberglass hood, an alloy front bumper, a boxed 9” rear end, and Motor Wheel magnesium and aluminum wheels wearing Goodyear drag slicks. Currently it sits on Steel wheels and I have the other set of wheels and tires.

Originally finished in Silver Smoke Gray (K), the car has been repainted in white. Exterior features include a fiberglass hood secured by pins, a Lexan rear window, alloy front bumper, and air intake ducts in place of the high beams.
The car features Motor Wheel Fly magnesium wheels up front and aluminum wheels out back that are mounted with Goodyear Eagle drag tires with rear slicks. Braking is through drums at all four corners. An adjustable steering box has been installed.

The cabin houses low-back bucket seats trimmed in beige vinyl with a matching rear bench, tri-tone door panels, a brown dashboard, and black rubber-lined floors. Simpson latch-and-link belts are fitted for front occupants.
A brown two-spoke steering wheel with a chrome horn ring sits ahead of a 120-mph speedometer and displays fuel level and coolant temperature. A Rotunda 8k-rpm tachometer is mounted atop the dash, and Stewart Warner auxiliary gauges for oil pressure and coolant temperature are housed beneath. The five-digit odometer shows 5k miles, around 200 of which have been added during current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 427ci side-oiler V8 is equipped with a replacement block as well as a high-rise intake manifold with dual Holley carburetors. Additional features are said to include an aluminum radiator, a Ford 428 crankshaft, Competition flat-tappet lifters, and a ceramic-coated stainless-steel exhaust system with Flowmaster Series 40 mufflers. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Ford C6 three-speed automatic transmission and a boxed 9” rear end. The floors and frame boxes have been reinforced.
