The “Thunderbird Special” 292 cubic-inch V8 looks authentic right down to iconic Thunderbird logo valve covers and hood-fed chrome teapot air filter. entire engine bay has been given its correct factory stampings, which is what really impresses the judges and T-Bird fans alike. As the correct motor for the car, it is the higher compression 8.5:1 that came with the automatic transmission and the correct Holley four-barrel carburetor. It’s a powerhouse of a V8, but it doesn’t lose its luxury-minded attitude as it sweetly purrs through its dual exhaust system. The aforementioned Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission stays comfortable as it clicks through the gears without a fuss.
