The forgotten Thunderbirds 1977-1978
A video tribute to the nearly forgotten 77-78 Ford Thunderbird. Every
carshow has a 55-57 T-bird sitting around, and the big square birds, but
the poor 77-78 Thunderbird was the hottest selling car for Ford Motor
Company in the late 70's. Sit back and take a trip down to the birds nest
to rediscover a rare bird.
Thanks for watching.

Here at RK Motors Charlotte, you know we're famous for finding unbelievable
cars, and this 1979 Thunderbird certainly qualifies. On the one hand, you
might be thinking that with over 100,000 T-Birds built in '79, this one
can't be rare, but on the other hand, how many have just 4219 original
1976 Ford Thunderbird 460 V8 early drive
One of the first times I had my 1976 Thunderbird on the road in May 2008.
All stock except for dual Exhaust and
blocked EGR. Saw very little road/maintenance for several years prior to
my ownership and ran pretty weak, with a noticeable miss. By the end of
the 2008 season I replaced plugs, wires and coil. It ran a bit better but
the best improvement came from an MSD ignition and Edelbrock Performer carb
The car was sold in October 2012. I decided to restore a '68 Galaxie
Finally starting up my 1977 T-Bird again after a whole year!
Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to start up my T-Bird and give it a
spin. It has been way too long. Last time I started it was Sept. last
year (2010). Starts up again without really any problems, small fuel leak,
40 second fix. lol.
Here is the history of my t-bird:
My dad bought it for his first car and he stopped driving it in 1989
because of some carb problems. My dad saved the car for me and in 2004 I
had the chance to get it running again. To my surprise, after not running
for 15 years, I poured gas down the carb and it fired right over!!!!! After
I bypassed the gas lines (old gas in them) I had it running like new. Haha,
first time I put it in gear it squealed the tires and jumped forward a
couple feet!!! I make sure I have the break to the floor before I put it in
gear now! Later in 2004 I brought the car in to a mechanic to have the
tranny flushed, but because of my lack of car knowledge I found out the
hard way that you don't do that to a old car. It now has tranny problems,
sometimes it wont stay in gear. Which really sucks because the tranny was
working beyond perfect before. It still has the minor carb problems
mentioned above too. And so I parked it in the storage shed in the video
and it is waiting for me to have the money and time to continue rebuilding
1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified
with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest
looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no
secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was
built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.
