1964 Ford Thunderbolt Page

Welcome to my page, 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.

The author sitting in T-Bolt #59 from Delta Ford. Thanks Diz, and may you 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. And no, I don't own one - YET!!!! But I do have a 2 door sedan lookalike that was my first car and is my pride and joy. Please mail me if you have any pictures, history or anything associated with these awesome, once in a lifetime cars. Thanks!!

This page is presently under construction, and I try my best to add something at least 2 or 3 times a week. Some photos are from magazines, and I hope that the owners will be nice enough to allow me to use them with the proper credit. Others are from friends, and they cannot be put on another site without contacting them. If you do not understand any of this, please email me and I will clarify my intentions.
