Supercharged DOHC Thunderbird on a Mustang Dyno
Final #'s are 343 rwhp and 314 tq. at 6k Rpms.I plan to take i to other Dyno also.
Finally got it tuned right, thanks to Dave and Kevin for getting it done.
Drove 4.5 hrs each way to get it done but it is so worth it. Car feels much
faster and stronger and runs 10X
better. On the way back home i averaged 24 mpg.This was a MustangDyno which they told me it has a
nickname "heart breaker" therefore #'s are lower then the other Dyno. People told me that i am
probably closer to 400 rwhp. Anyways enjoy the video!

97' Tbird w/Automatic Lambo doors and trunk Video.avi
Here is a video of my custom 97' Tbird w/ automatic lamo doors and trunk.
They go up kinda slow but that's due to the doors being so heavy. Even
with a H.O. alt, Optima yellow top, and several kinetik 2400's. So
hopefully I can come up with a way to speed um up a lil. Thank you for
watching hope you enjoyed and leave me ur thoughts.......
95 Ford Thunderbird SUPER COUPE
Just got done re doing the top end! New slightly ported heads, I had the
blower taken apart to get it ported and to have the silencer ports sealed.

and there was still quite a bit left to mill. Has cone filter. No cats,
this is before I put mufflers on it. Virgin rear tires, And I let dad take
it for a spin..... Dads will be dads I guess.

Reflecting a further industry-wide adoption of smaller vehicle designs in
the interest of improved fuel efficiency and emissions compliance, the
Thunderbird was redesigned for 1980 on the compact Ford Fox platform, which
first appeared only two years prior as the basis for the Ford Fairmont.
Compared to the previous Torino-based Thunderbird and its large 114 inches
(2,896 mm) wheelbase and 215.5 inches (5,474 mm) overall length, the new
Thunderbird lost 5.6 inches (142 mm) of wheelbase and 14.6 inches (371 mm)
in overall length. The squarish styling seen in the previous generation
Thunderbird was favored for the new model, but the small car platform
resulted in a poor translation with a distinctly upright appearance.
Frameless door glass was no longer used; a chrome metal frame was used,
making this car more like a two-door sedan. Combined with the poor
performing 4.2 L (255 cu in) Windsor V8 as a base engine, this Thunderbird
generation was not well received by the public. The available 4.9 L (302 cu
in) Windsor V8 was a welcome alternative to the 255, but with only 131 horsepower (98 kW)
performance was only modestly enhanced. Significantly, though failing to
generate any new interest for the Thunderbird, a six-cylinder engine was
made available for the first time in the Thunderbird's history in 1981, the
200 cu in (3.3 L) Thriftpower Six. For 1982 this was followed up with the
replacement of the straight-six with a V6, the 3.8 L Essex, which was also
now the Thunderbird's standard engine. Hurting the Thunderbird's sales
performance further, the 302 V8 did not return for 1982, leaving the 255 as
the only alternative engine. At 288,638 examples produced between 1980 and
1982, the eighth generation Thunderbird was barely more successful than the
final model year of the previous Thunderbird generation. In order to
revive the Thunderbird's success, a redesign was needed and Ford would
deliver one for 1983.

1997 Ford Thunderbird Sport Daily Driver
My new daily driver that I bought. The engine has been redone to be a lot
more powerful and the car overall is pretty clean. Has a GT Cam, Intake,
maybe heads? I can't remember. And is also bored over. As you heard in the
video, I have now officially moved to Indianapolis, Indiana. Stayed tuned
for an update from the new apartment.
1963 Ford Thunderbird Landau 390 V8 4 BBL
I thought you might like a look at this 1963 Ford Thunderbird Landau. The
Landau edition came with a special vinyl top treatment and additional wood
grain in the interior. It's powered by a 390 FE series V8, cranking out
300 HP and 427 LbFt of Torque. Inside, you'll find bucket seats, power
windows, air conditioning, and even a swing away steering column. It's been
a number of years since this car was restored, but it's still looking good.
I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
