1955 Ford Thunderbird Maintenance at V8 Speed and Resto Shop Photo Gallery

According to the nubers, there were only 38 of these first generation 1967 Excalibur roadsters built, and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew just finished a freshening on a very cool maroon version for a great customer.     The car is powered by a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 327 and is hooked to a Borg-Warner 3-speed automatic transmission, and features functional side exiting pipes and dual exhaust.   The chassis is basically a stretched 1964 Studebaker Lark, with front disc brakes and a third headlight that turns with the steering wheel, like a Tucker Torpedo.   Inside, you'll find an engine-turned dash with Stewart Warner gauges and an original Motorola radio.   This car is showing just over 19,000 miles on the odometer, and had not run in years before being delivered to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a tune-up and some new wide whitewalls from Diamond Back Classics.    These are rare and unusual cars, and we're happy to keep them on the road!Click "Read More" for the complete photo gallery!
