Vehicle Description

Gateway classic cars of Nashville is proud to digitally present this 1964 Ford Thunderbolt Tribute. Since Ford decided to only build 100 of these incredible cars a lot of builders out there have been making their own for years and this is the nicest Tribute to the Thunderbolt that I have seen. She is looking sweet all dressed up in her Red paint that shines like a new penny. The interior looks just as good and I am sure you have looked through all the photos of this car so let get to the meat! The block is a 1986 NON HO 302 that kept its original bore. The heads are from 1968 and have been ported and had the larger 351 Windsor valves installed. Comp Cams hydraulic roller bump stick lifts the followers pushing hardened push rods to operate the roller tip rocker arms. Screw in studs and guide plate keep everything working together. A double roller timing chain keeps everything in sync. Intake is Edlebrock performer (R) and has an Autolite 600 CFM carburetor sitting on top. The transmission is from a 1987 Mustang and gives you one more gear than you would have gotten in 1964. A ford 9-inch housing with 3.50:1 gears and a traction lock center section does the duty of splitting the power between the rear tires. For the suspension up front all new joints and bushing with an oversized sway bar. Rear is leaf springs with custom made nylon adapters and traction bars to help hold the power to the tires. The brakes were kept stock to look the part but all new and are fed Silicone brake fluid. All of the power steering components have been rebuilt and of course new hoses were installed. I could tell you about the Dura Spark ignition module, the radio, speakers and even battery cables as I have the build book that is at least 3 inches thick. Please call for more information and make this your new favorite classic. Options for this 1964 Fairlane thunderbolt tribute include: AM/FM radio, Power steering, Vinyl interior, Radial tires, Alloy rims, Posi traction and dual exhaust to name a few.
