    Default Tony's TB

    Enjoy my newest photos: plan to put in new long block in the Spring. If you have any advise about rebuilt engine manufacturers let me know. Looked at ATK, S&J, and Engine Guy.

    That's a good looking car. I can't comment on engine builders. I rebuilt my own over a period of time. SOmeone may chime in with a good answer to that. Keep us posted on the progress.

    Nice Thunderbird

    As far as engine rebuilders I recommend finding a reputable local engine builder and having them rebuild your engine. Ask around and find who most of the guys with vintage cars use.

    Buy a cheap explorer long block from a junkyard and rebuild it. Might as well gain some power while your at it.
