The 1964 Ford Fairlane you see above is anything but stock. It originally debuted at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and it's one of the vehicles that helped cement Ring Brothers as a force in the custom car world. Underhood is a fuel-injected, 427-cubic-inch V8 engine from Roush that puts out a stout 560 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque, so this beast is just as much go and it is show.

That said, the show part of the equation may be its most impressive attribute. Much of the body is crafted from carbon fiber, including the hood, fenders and bumpers. Billet aluminum makes up a large chunk of the rest.

Called "Afterburner," this custom Fairlane just sold at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale for $225,000 plus a 10-percent fee. Check it out in our high-res image gallery above and the official auction description below.

      They lost so much money on that deal. Easy $400K+ in that car.

      You know , we real working class car enthusiasts are too forking sick and 4king tired of these Barrett Jackson yahoos . with all of their paunchy middle aged to senior rich-niks who have never spent a day on their backs underneath ANY car . These pricks have succeeded in pricing vintage autos beyond the reach of true enthusiasts who along the way have owned many of the cars BJ ( nice acronym ) have priced way beyond their reach . I refuse to watch the BJ B.S. and the abomination they have made of the domestic muscle / vintage car market . In a country built on the sweat of a blue collar economy BJ represents just one more way in which working people are denied yet another of the small pleasures they used to have the ability to enjoy , while the 1% get to own everything while never fully appreciating it , because it came easy . Will real Americans with hard working dirt under their nails , ever get to enjoy the simple pleasures of life in the USA . Enough is enough .

        Yeah you nailed it brother. I live modestly, some dirt under my fingernails, still driving my trusty 97 Saturn. I would never take it to a mechanic, not even for alignments :) and smile every time a $50,000 foo-foo-mobile drives past me.

        Bitter little man. aren't you? That is a full custom built to order - that was never intended for a backyard mechanic like you (like you know how to set the timing on anything...) Sadly, your hatred of smarter people who manage their money better than you, who have built successful businesses like myself, don't owe you an apology for success. Barrett Jackson (BJ) provides a service for people who can afford it, just like hotels exist in every price range, or your mom (BJs) - there is always someone who wants service, but at different price levels. Just because you're a pig with dirt under your nails (try something called "soap"), doesn't mean you work hard or deserve riches. You deserve only what someone else is willing to pay you. Evidently, in your case, your skill set is not particularly valuable.

        Wow, never seen so many uneducated assumptions in one post. So sad that people would rather use the 1% excuse than work to improve their own situation.

      J. your an idiot to be the least. They didn't make assembly line cars with 560 hp 427 roush motors and Much of the body is crafted from carbon fiber, including the hood, fenders and bumpers. Billet aluminum makes up a large chunk of the rest. They probably had 400 k in the build. Who ever owns will probably keep it a few years and probably make money on selling it again. The price of rare cars has gone way up in case you didn't know that making some puchases a good investment. Recently a L88 corvette stingray wen for 3+ million and probably will get resold 5 years later for twice that. Owning a piece of history is priceless something you know nothing about.

It's plain to see That you can tell it's me With my checkered hat And my checkered coat, The funny giggle in my throat And my silly dance Like a billy goat.

      Geez, This thing is not a stock vehicle . Anyone with enough money can buy a paint job, plastic bumpers, a custom built engine and chrome candy pieces. I go to auto shows and see some really nice vehicles that the owners go all out to keep stock. The winners of the shows are the ones with gross modifications and lots of chrome. No thanks ...I'll keep my 68 Torino GT 100% stock ....even down to the Philco radio.
