Rotisserie Built, Thunderbolt Tribute! 427ci FE V8, 4-Speed, Extremely Correct!

1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Tribute

VIN: 4F41T101289

Check out this pristine 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Thunderbolt Tribute with all the right stuff. This clone is 98% correct from the aluminum tow bar hitches to the exact Dearborn steel tubing traction bars! This Thunderbolt not only features all the correct equipment but also all the little details that make it a #1 show winner. The body has been finished in the correct Ford color of Wimbledon White. This gorgeous paint covers the original rust-free body and the fiberglass trunk, hood, and fenders. All the stainless trim is perfect including the grill and chrome bumpers. Inside is all correct including Bostrom bucket seats upholstered in correct gold vinyl, mounted on powder coated seat brackets on correct rubber floor mat. The dashboard is the correct color with the radio and heater delete plate. All window sash and interior metal is the correct color and perfect. It features the original and correct Ford Rotunda Tachometer accompanied by Stewart Warner Gauges. The dash pad has been signed by Ford Drag Racing Legends, Hubert Platt and Dick Brannan. Under that tear drop hood is a correct Ford 427ci FE center oiler V8 with the correct Holley carburetors with correct fuel log all mounted on a Ford medium riser intake for drivability. The engine is partnered with a Toploader 4-Speed Manual Transmission and Ford 9inch Rear End. This is a beautiful Thunderbolt Tribute any collector or enthusiast would love to own. When Hubert Platt sat in the car to sign the dash, he asked what number it was. (He thought it was a real one)!
