63 or 64 fair lane for a drag car???


Recommended Posts

I like the '63 just because they aren't, or don't seem to be as common as the '64. The '64 is much easier to obtain as Revell has done a few issues with it. I just built a '63 recently. I think they can make a pretty wicked looking little car. I may be a little biased though.

The '64 T-Bolt is hard to beat as a drag car but on the street I prefer the baby finned '63 Fairlane .  I have one on my bench now that's going to be a mid 60's car with a 289 HiPo motor .

Man that looks good!!! Is that a resin body??  What chassis and interior are you going to use??

I happened to be at the Winter Nationals when Ford showed up with the Thunderbolts and I think that memory is why I prefer the '64 model. I think either one would work as it would just depend on your personal preference. The Revell kit makes it pretty simple to build a '64 Drag Car, but this kit could just as easily be used to build a '63 body into a Drag Car.

So if one is partial to the the '63, where does one find an affordable / available kit?

Ebay. You can get an original for the same or less money than a resin trans kit. I got mine for $50 plus shipping. Plus, I got glass that fit. The T-Bolt glass won't fit the '63. Two different roofs.

It's an original AMT body and interior .  I'm using the T-Bolt chassis .
