1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt

Ford’s “Total Performance” program was well underway when Lee Iacocca hired Dearborn Steel Tubing Company to build a batch of special lightweight Ford Fairlanes for the factory's top drag racing clientele. Stripped down, painted Wimbledon White and stuffed with 427 cubic inches of Galaxie V-8, the cars were dubbed “Thunderbolts”, and they struck drag racing like lightning. The 1964 Thunderbolt offered here sold for $245,000 at the inaugural Mecum Dallas Auction, held October 6 - 8 at the Dallas Convention Center.
