Here she is, America 1978 Thunderbird

Discussion in '1967 - 1988 Ford Thunderbird' started by ACinTN, Jul 22, 2017.

  1. Well,

    I'm a "noob" to the Bird world. I have *lots* of experience with old Mustangs and Shelby's. As that hobby got more crazy - I found myself enjoying the "Big Fords" a lot better. My last three were a '67 Farilane, a '71 Ranchero and now my 1978 Bird.

    I'm looking forward to starting this process. This is a good, solid car with horrible paint. The interior is very nice. It drives great - I'll enjoy that once I get the squeak handled in the front - whatever that is. I charged the AC today - it's not great, not horrible - but, it's working. The cruise control works on this car.

    It's fully documented. I have the sleeve that originally went over the sun visor, the build sheet (punch card) all the purchasing paperwork and documents that came with that, owners manual and most registration through the years - even the original title.

    The eyelids stay down about eight hours. I want to fix that. It needs tires bad - I'm going to put white stripes on it like original. I want to paint it.

    It's an original car that has it's original exhaust - the shocks are original - lots of Ford part numbers on this one - amazing floors, and solid body.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you all and being a member here. Thank you for this opportunity!

  2. Welcome Im new as well. Actually to the whole scene of this. I own a 97Gt mustang and a 77 thunderbird minus drivetrain. So my plans are to install the 4.6L from my mustang into my 77 Bird then a coyote into my 97 GT. So any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated
