Click on the link below and you'll find us upgrading the engine of our '64 Fairlane with a great carb and manifold installation. Many thanks to Holley and Weiand for getting us fixed up on the induction side of our mill. To cover it all up, we spoke to U.S. Body Source about a custom hood for the car. We were really interested in a teardrop-style hood because this was the type used on the famous Thunderbolt.
The T-Bolt was a potent factory-made drag racer produced to bolster Ford's position at the digs back in 1964. They were two-door sedans, also known as post cars. The sedan featured a vertical pillar between the front and rear side windows that's not found on the hardtop. This made for a more rigid car--something desirable if you're going to stuff an FE 427 underhood. Our Fairlane is a sedan, so a teardrop hood would give us a pretty authentic T-Bolt look. U.S. Body agreed to help us get started. Although our car has nothing near a 427, we never know what the future holds. Besides, we love the aggressive look the hood gives the car. The huge box just arrived. We're ready to get started.
