 Vehicle Description
1964 Ford Thunderbolt recreationbr/br/ DETAIL, DETAIL, this is not a real estate lesson but for those of you that recall the days of Race on Sunday...Sell on Monday this Thunderbolt is the zenith of both axioms. Ford built just 100 of these ultra high performance cars to sell for $1 each to the biggest names in drag racing in the mid 60s. The sole purpose of the car was to showcase Fords high performance prowess and drive buyers to their local showrooms so they might enjoy a bit of the glimpse they might have gotten from behind the wheel of a truly momentous car from the Blue Oval Boys. Yes, this one is not one of the original and vaunted few that Ford built, but there is testimony that it is as true to one of the first eleven originally built as you will find anywhere this side of Dearborn. This 1964 Ford Thunderbolt re-creation is of the one Ford sold to Mickey Thompson and driven by Butch Leal. This vehicle has photographic authentication of its provenance to the minutest detail of the build. Here is an opportunity to take advantage of another mans expertise and attention to detail, right down to the cloth that covers the seats, and enjoy an absolute blast from the Ford dedicated 100 Fairlane 500 2-door sedans to this project.

It runs on 91 octane fuel, readily available everywherebr/br/ A very unique feature is the viscous drive fan cooling system through 3 core radiator with 180A? high flow thermostat cooling to 190A?. All this means over-heating is highly unlikelybr/br/ The Crites exhaust system, with electric cut-outs, is plumbed through a single exhaust. Which is factory correct!br/br/ There is a Stewart Warner electric fuel pump with a correct 3/8 fuel line to the factory-correct mechanical pump. Because this one is thirstybr/br/ The hood is audacious and was the design used on the first 11 cars only, It may not be the most stylish but it is correctbr/br/ This particular car is neither for the faint of heart or someone that doesnt truly appreciate what went into building factory race cars of this era. It is a bare bones brute of a car, that will turn heads not only at ignition but at launch and blowing through the traps or just sitting on your
