Inhaltsangabe: Ford's Fairlane 427, affectionately known as the "Thunderbolt," effectively announced Ford's arrival as a serious player on the stock drag racing scene in 1964. Whereas Ford had enjoyed some success with far heavier full-sized cars and ambitious private competitors like Dick Brannan, with the Thunderbolt the Blue Oval brought Brannan into the fold and made a concerted effort to rule the quarter mile with a purpose-built, factory-supported racecar. This book tells the whole story of this landmark car. The Thunderbolt combined Ford's mid-size chassis with its powerful big-block engine to become Ford's most successful drag racer. The momentum gained with the Thunderbolt project established Ford's drag racing pedigree, which it soon applied to the new Mustang. While the Mustang has carried Ford's performance reputation forward to today, true Ford fans fondly remember Thunderbolt and a time 50 years ago when it dominated drag strips from coast to coast.
Über den Autor: Charlie Morris has been a die-hard Ford man from the day he watched the 1960 Daytona 500 and decided it was the Blue Oval for him. A long-time fan of any style of racing in which Ford products participated, his personal experiences have been in drag racing. He has raced a 1954 Ford in M/Stock and a Super Stock 1962 Ford, crewed an Alcohol Funny Car and a Pro Stock Ford Thunderbird, and was the engine builder/crew chief for a championship-winning 1963 1/2 Nostalgia Super Stock Galaxie. He is the author of four previous books on drag racing Fords, including Ford Drag Team from Stance & Speed. Charlie resides in Normandy Beach, New Jersey, with his wife, Gale.
