Rousing The Dead: After 24 Years Quiet, This 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Will Wake Up!


Rousing The Dead: After 24 Years Quiet, This 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 Will Wake Up!

It probably seems like I’m stuck on revival videos…and I am, for good reason: inspiration. When your project car has spent five of seven years dead, sooner or later you start to lose hope in the damn thing ever running and it helps to know that projects that are worse off or have been down much longer than my own come back to life in relative ease. Since I have work to do for quite some time in the garage, I like to look at videos like these to get the motivation I need to buck up and get my ass underneath the car.

We aren’t sure how ClassicMustangs429 cornered the market on 1960s-era Ford products that went under the Sleeping Beauty spell, but here’s the latest one to be brought back to the land of the living: a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500. Ford’s early intermediate offering, the Fairlane was meant to take on the GM A-bodies, the Mopar B-bodies, and the AMC Rambler Classic line, and while not a total screamer in it’s day, surely the Thunderbolt drag-racing special carried a performance torch that the more pedestrian models could follow. Besides, who doesn’t love a classic Ford?

This Fairlane has been quiet too long…time to wake this thing up and get it back out into the light!
