1963 Ford Fairlane Gasser Hits The Drag Strip!

After slumbering for over thirty-years, T.K.’s Automotive in Summit, Missouri, brought a 1963 Ford Fairlane out of hibernation. According to the information provided by T.K.’s Automotive, this Ford went through a frenetic two-month build schedule, which culminated in the creation of this gasser.

It is incredible to watch a classic car take to road after decades of just sitting around, and this fire up video documents the beginning of an incredible project. Although the video description calls this ’63, a gasser and factory experimental tribute build, the end result is nothing short of amazing. Regardless of the classification, this machine sounds incredible and appears to have no issues on the street.

Future videos document the progress of the gasser build along with it performance at the drag strip. From paint and body, to a few upgrades this ’63 went through quite a transformation.

By increasing the height of the front end the center or gravity is raised as well, which assists with weight transfer and thus improving performance at the drag strip. As the build progressed with the addition of performance enhancements, such as a blower, this machine is capable of dragging the rear bumper.

Fortunately, a set of wheelie bars keep this high flying Ford from doing any damage to the rear bumper. After the hours of work put in by T.K.’s Automotive, this gasser tribute features a wild paint job complete with a pinup girl. Thanks to the classic styling and killer powertrain, Miss Fitt is ready for the drag strip as well as a classic car show.
