The 1964 Ford Fairlane 427 Thunderbolt is one of the craziest cars ever made. Seriously, these beast were very limited in production, in fact, only 100 units were ever made, but each and every one was completely badass. While it lacked the outrageous design seen in some of its counterparts, this bad boy blew the competition away with absolutely wicked performances!
With the lightweight body and a massive 427 Ford V8 engine with dual Holley four-barrel carburetors, this monster left a lot of competition in the dust. Due to tight regulations, Ford engineers claimed that this 7.0L behemoth produces 425 horsepower, while the actual number was much closer to 600! That meant that the Thunderbolt was able to cross a quarter mile in just 11 seconds! Truly astonishing!
However, when it came to the interior, the Thunderbolt wasn’t in best shape. The weight shedding definitely took its toll, as Ford engineers decided to ditch the radio, sunvisors and even the arm rests! Then again, this vehicle was all about performances, and boy, did it deliver!
