1957 Ford ThunderbirdI bought this car out of Vegas about 10 years ago.Car had a 351W and an FMX trans with a supposedly fresh rebuild.Well turns out it had been rebuilt but I took it a part due to knock deep down in the short block.Well when I turned it over on the engine stand there was a large clunk that turned out to be a a main bolt.So it was time to make a hot rod.418 Windsor engine parts Drive train parts70 or 71 Windsor C4 trans with brake,full reverse manual valve body 4.100 Scat steel crank 3500 stall convererLentz 1/2 inch bolt rods B&M cooler with braided linesJE pistons 4.030 B&M ratchet shifter with reverse lock outPrecision pins 3.70 track lock diffMoly file fit ringsMellings hv pumpAFR heads with 185cc intake runnersComp Thumper roller cam and liftersFord Motorsports roller rockersEdelbrock air gap duel plane intakeHolley single pump,vac secondary,electric choke carb
I built this to run strong from idle to the top end and it dose as it's comfortable from idle to 7000.
The only thing I can tell you about on the body is it has a fiberglass section of the front drivers fender from the top of the tire forward.Other wise the paint is old and has cracks and places that are lifting but in odd places like the top of the trunk so my guess is bad prep.Looks great from 10 feet and going down the road.Car has no convertible top and no windshield wipers.I used to use this nine months out of the year as my daily driver so it was very dependable when I had time for it.I have not had it on the road for a couple of years and I don't see it in my future so I'm going to let go to someone who can have as much fun with it as I have.All pic's were taken today.
