1962 Lincoln and Thunderbird Being Built
A visit to the factory while the 1962 Lincoln Continental (suicide doors)
and the Thunderbird are being built. See the whole process from body
parts being welded together, glass put on, paint applied and the cars
rolling off the line and on to a transport to the dealers. This is how the
middle class was born, making things.

This started in 2007 when a neighbor stopped over with a beat up black '87
cougar 5.0 with a rod knock. Asked what he wanted the car to be, was told
'basic nice cruiser'. Recommended a Autozone Mustang spec'd reman'd 302, add a set
of 1.72 rollers, BBK shorty headers and a speed density Mustang processor with 19lb
That lasted about a month, then the 'I want more' and 'what's next' nagging
started. Ended up swapping in the powdercoated Cobra intake and 65mm
throttle body. Then in went a Cobra mass air conversion with 24lb
injectors, then n went the heads and 'E' cam, then somewhere in there we
spent a day in the junk yard grabbing the clutch pedal out of another
T-coupe and we swapped in a '93 WC spec T5 and Hurst shifter. Somewhere in
there as well the whole Exhaust was
changed out to longtubes and hand fabbed mandrel bent 2.5" pipes. About a
week after the 5 speed swap in the Cougar he found this '88 Tcoupe fr $500
less brakes. One ice cube relay and it had brakes so two weeks later the
Cougar was scrapped and the T-coupe was built. Add gauges, change out the
dash and interior for better and here it sits. There's a fully loaded rust
free blue '88 T-coupe waiting to get all this stuff put in it now. It
1963 Ford Thunderbird Sport Roadster Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1963 Ford Thunderbird
Sport Roadster. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
