Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt American Classic Sports Car

Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt American Classic Sports Car
This Sports Muscle Car is an ambitious Ford project, to win the Drag Race championship in the early 1960s. Built on the basis of Ford Fairlane 1963. A lightweight intermediate size sedan.

1963 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt equipped with a specification of Ford's flagship engine, FE V8 472-cbi / 7.0L. With a maximum power of 425 HP / 6000 RPM (according to the publication of Ford), but the original can reach 600 HP (Horsepower). Woww Really sadistic car.

In addition to large engines, apparently this car is made diet so looks slim by Ford engineer, by replacing the hood, door, and body parts that do not affect the structure of the frame with fiberglass.

With this effort, Fairlane Thunderbolt succeeded in bringing Ford won the Drag Race arena in 1964.
