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.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

Very nice car. Love the color too.  Can't comment as to the engine but I do believe you will find what you are looking for.    What for a hood scoop did you choose?
