American Muscle Car: '64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbird & The Shelby Mustangs
'64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt
Ford went drag racing in 1964 with their new Fairlane and their NASCAR 427 engine. Talk about a ringer! The result was the most mind-boggling car the NHRA stock classes had ever seen.
The Shelby Mustangs
Carroll Shelby's GT-350 Mustang was a limited edition road racer in street clothing. Shelby's GT-500KR was not for the faint of heart. It had every performance option you could get from Ford, plus a big, bad 428 engine. By the way, "KR" stood for "King of the Road."
