    The next project

    Well we are finished with the 67 Fairlane daily driver for my brother and he just trailered this home.

    1966 Thunderbird Landau, 390 with 92,000 miles. Car appears to be really clean.

    Pulled the plugs, oiledbthe cylinders, turned it by hand, charged the battery, cranked her without plugs, cleaned and set the plugs, put her back together and she fired on the first try. Runs and sounds great!

    Very nice! 390’s are really under appreciated - they are so smooth and make nice power and torque in these big cars.

    It won't put you back in the seat like your mustang, but it gets up and goes. Floats down the road nicely. The second picture is my son when he took it to prom. The tbird was a big hit.
