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 Mustang Dyno 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!

Why Aftermarket Parts Suck ('96-97 MN12 Tbird / Cougar Header Panel)
Some parts aren't as important as others. The structural panel that ties your front end together and holds the headlights on? That's one of the important ones, so "Made in Taiwan" (China) is NOT your friend.





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. Its pulling about 17 psi of Boost, 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.





Ford Thunderbird Town Landau Sports Coupe Lincoln Continental Mark VI 2 Owner
Thunderbird Town Landau T-Bird Sport Coupe Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy And thats right Ford Called this car a sports Coupe. These are Very nice cars and this Tbird is a Beautiful car and in Great shape. The Town Landau is a Rare thing to see in this 2 Year run in the Fox Platform. I was Really Surprised at how well the 4.2 Litre V8 Does I gues Maybe cause its a light car but the car moves. I would say there is Alot more Power than there is in a 87 or so Fleetwood I do ALOT of Unique Muscle, Classic & Euro cars and I sell them Cheap Call Anytime 406 544 6919 Make sure and Check out my Channel I have ove 750 Videos on there of nice Clean One and 2 Owner Cars & Trucks Also if you Subscribe you will See the Unique cars First..;-) Also You can Add Me on Facebook here is a Link http://facebook.com/cerealmarshmallows From Wikipedia 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.[4] 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.[1] 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!
