Gateway classic cars of Nashville is proud to offer for sale this
1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Thunderbolt tribute. Now in 1963 Ford
decided to join the muscle car war in a big way. They took a small
hand full, some say as little as 100 1964 Ford Fairlane 500's and
put them on a diet. Fiberglass was used liberally, sun visors,
heaters, radio and anything that did not make the car go faster was
removed. The drive train of choice was the 427 cubic inch big block
and either a 3-speed automatic or a 4-speed manual transmission
hooked up to a 9 inch rear axle. These cars were not available to
the general public and if Ford offered you one, you bought it! This
tribute to the brute has been built to very rigid standards and
while the engine is not a 427, it is packing similar amounts of
power. The 351 cubic inch Windsor is running 8.5 to 1 compression
that is pump gas friendly and is equipped with a Holley Sniper EFI,
customer aluminum heads that have 205 cc intake runners with 62 cc
combustion chambers and houses 2.02 intake valves and 1.6 exhaust.
A Ford E303 roller cam provides the lift and duration via the 1.6
roller rockers mashing Lunati springs. A 6AL MSD box with
adjustable Rev limiter and two step control and 60,000 Volt coil
provide the spark. Ford racing headers and Doug's cut out help the
exhaust out the back. A new AOD automatic transmission with reverse
valve body that sends the power through a one-piece drive shaft to
the 9 inch that houses a Yukon trac lock center section that has a
set of 3.89 to 1 ring and pinion gears. This is a serious car and
should come with a warning label that reads "twisting the key on
this car is not for the fragile or faint of heart" Options for this
1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Thunderbolt tribute include: Air
Conditioning, Power steering and brakes, Power windows, tilt
steering wheel, Radial tires, Racing wheel and Position traction
