    Rather than look for something that isn't in the 141 pages of this thread, can anybody remember seeing any photos of the Tasca '63 Fairlane 427, prototype for the Thunderbolts?

    Thanks for that, I can remember one photo of a white one in the pits, are these the same car repainted or did they build more than one?

    If you look back pretty long ago in this thread this was discussed and discussed by the T Bolt "experts" in here. The final consensuses was that it was real and a real T-Bolt. The ONLY 1965 that was real.

    Outstanding!! Any other pics of this car? Love the narrowed rear look of this car, adding extra meats without having them hang outboard. This car has what I consider classic tire sizing!!

    The driver of this car was John Donilson. I think he died in it, maybe circa 1966.

    Ford commissioned DST with instructions to be built like the 64"s.
