The Shelby Cobra wasn’t the only car blessed with Ford’s legendary FE 427 V8. Back in 1964, the Fairlane Thunderbolt was a limited-production, drag-race-only vehicle that was fitted with a 427 mill. Only 100 units were ever made, but the car secured the NHRA Super Stock title for Ford that same year, and none were produced after that. Dicus Designs is bringing back the Thunderbolt in repro form. It features a Heidts front end and a Strange 9-inch, 35-spline rear end with Cal Trac suspension and SSBC four-wheel disc brakes. Rather than a 427 block, though, it runs a Boss 544-cubic-inch Shotgun Hemi built by Chris Holbrook Race Engines.
