Craig Sutton's 1964 Ford Thunderbolt Website

Welcome to my website, which is dedicated to the 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt. These 100, special purpose built drag cars, helped Ford Motor Company capture the NHRA Super Stock title that year.

Len Richter has passed away. May he rest in peace.

-----------------------------------

In 1964, exactly 100 Fairlane 2 door sedans were partially built by the Ford Motor Company and shipped to Dearborn Steel Tubing for completion. These cars were finished as drag race-only machines for Super Stock, Super Stock Automatic, and A/FX class competition. Many had glamorous careers, while some had accidents with tragic results.

Today, Thunderbolts are highly valued collector and nostalgic racers. Many are still known to exist, and most that aren't around are known to have been wrecked.

Please mail me if you have any pictures, history or anything associated with these awesome, once in a lifetime cars. Thanks!!

Please let me know if you have any ideas or contributions for my upcoming site makeover. I plan on redoing a bunch of my stuff and changing it up a little. I'd love to include more stories and photos, so if you have any ideas, pictures, or recollections send them to craigsutton427@yahoo.com. Thanks!
