1963 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Tribute
Please visit for additional photos, information and a video. This 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 2-door hardtop is a top-notch restoration! The doors, hood and trunk close with the lightest touch and the big block engine roars to life at the bump of the key. This car is built right and is a car you can immediately start winning trophies with. The exterior is painted a bright red that was professionally sprayed over an incredibly straight body. The stock hood has been professionally cut and actually goes down around the hood scoop. A prop rod holds it open so you can show off the clean engine compartment at shows. This Ford is lowered and rides on Boyd Coddington aluminum alloy wheels. The famous Thunderbolt was the inspiration for this Fairlane, but it was taken to the next level with custom touches everywhere you look. 460 badges on the fenders let onlookers know that this beast isnâ€™t messing around! The big block Ford 460 is built with an Edelbrock intake, Holley carburetor, big tubular headers and a mild cam. An aluminum radiator keeps it all cool and aluminum valve covers and a big menacing breather make the engine the star of the show. The engine is nestled into a completely smoothed engine bay. The inner fenders and firewall are smoothed and painted the same bright red the exterior wears. A built C6 automatic transmission handles the power and provides smooth quick shifts. Adjustable ladder bars and coil-overs put the power to the ground out back. When itâ€™s time to stop, 4-wheel disc brakes handle that job with ease. The interior is clean and simple. The dash has been smoothed with the ignition and headlight switch hidden underneath. A billet gauge cluster houses Dolphin white face gauges and an AM/FM/CD player has been added. A B&M shifter on the floor is a fun way to get through the gears while you sit on the very comfortable red vinyl bench seat. Strap in with the retractable seatbelts and turn up the A/C on those hot summer cruises. The attention to detail doesnâ€™t stop there. Even the trunk is nicely finished with black vinyl panels surrounding the fuel cell. The wiring and lines are nicely routed so you see as little of them as possible. This is a no expense spared restoration that will make the next owner very proud to show it off. This vehicle is eligible for an extended service contract through Classic Vehicle Protection.
