You know the factory Thunderbolts were much more than a street Fairlane body and chassis with a big motor, right? You'll have a tough time finding the right parts if you want it to be an accurate clone, including fiberglass bumpers and doors, aluminum bumpers and the correct 2/4 bbl 427, which requires moving some suspension components and attachment points.

Great car, and only sold to a chosen few. Gas Rhonda drove one in the '64 Winternationals and went 11.6, 124 out of the box in SS, fast for it's day. In A/FX trim they were in the 9's.
