Tilt the car’s sculpted hood and you’ll find a correct 312 cubic inch Thunderbird V8 that’s fully rebuilt and dressed to impress. Introduced in 1956 as a high-end Ford and Mercury staple this stout Y-block remained one of Dearborn’s hottest factory options until late 1961. Behind that beefy mill a stalwart Ford-O-Matic 3-speed sends power to a familiar Ford 9-inch that’s fitted with an open differential and pleasant 3.10 gears. The car’s suspension remains close to its original configuration with factory power steering complementing fresh drum brakes. And on the outside of those drums correctly painted wheels spin G78-14 Coker Classic whitewalls around classy chrome hub caps.
