1964 Ford Fairlane Twin Turbo
One of the best-looking 2 door sedans of the '60s just got even better. Here's a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 that has undergone a rotisserie restoration with stunning paint, overdrive transmission, and a comfortable A/C interior to be the ultimate pro touring machine. And oh yeah, did we mention the professionally-built 830 horsepower twin turbo V8?!?! The upgrades to this 2 door sedan are subtle at first. The wide chrome bumpers shine like mirrors; the headlights are crystal-clear; the full-length trim looks like an unbroken line on the super-straight sheetmetal; the jet-inspired taillights are bright like afterburners; and there's a terrific application of legendary Wimbledon White that takes advantage of modern clearcoat depth. All of this makes for an impressive presentation on one the best family-sized coupe designs ever to come from Detroit. But more than just a fine presentation, those genuine Halibrand wheels (extra-wide in the rear) and the lowered stance hint at all the upgrades beneath the surface. More of this incognito attitude awaits when you open the door. This Fairlane was a labor of love, and so the owner spent plenty of time and effort sourcing the right NOS parts to restore the Ivy Gold interior. The result feels like a 1960s time capsule as you look at the detail of the seats, door panels, headliner, carpeting, and even the trunk. And this all still feels so fresh because there is less than 3,000 miles on the car since this trek for the correct components was completed. But this was a classic that he wanted to spend real time in, and so there are also great upgrades like an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. While the steering wheel and the gauges have that perfect old-school feel, upgrades like the auxiliary readout trio, TCI Thunder Stick shifter, and shift light on the dash are all more hints at the beast within. When you lift the hood, the presentation is worth awards all on its own. The super tidy setup lets you see the sleek painted inner-fenders. Plus, painting the intake, air topper, and valve covers to match the whole car will draw more attention than chrome ever could. And beneath this show-stopping style is one of the best power packages you'll ever find. It starts with a Dart 374 cubic-inch V8 block. Duffee Motorsports built this with AFR aluminum heads, Accel fuel injection, headers, twin 59mm Garrett turbos w/Turbonetics wastegates, and air to air intercooler. This is rated at 830 horsepower on premium pump gas, and with the right programming and fuel, this could be a 1,000+ hp sleeper! Something this ferocious needs all the right supporting components. That's why it's mated to more modern AOD-E four-speed automatic built by FB Performance Transmission. This feeds a Currie 9-inch rear end with limited slip and Daytona pinion. The suspension has been seriously upgraded with '95 Mustang spindles, a thick sway bar, and Tokico coilover shocks up front. The rear is a strong custom three-link with adjustable QA1 coilovers. Plus, those wide Mickey Thompson drag radials in the rear are the best kind of rubber you want on this aggressive total package. But this beast is more than just a raw power machine. You can easily tame it with features like power steering and Baer four-wheel disc brakes. The sale comes with build receipts, restoration photos, and owner's manual. That way you can take everyone on this one-of-a-kind Fairlane's unique transformation journey. It's an amazing 2 door sedan where no detail was skipped.
