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

According to the numbers, 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!

1957 Ford Thunderbird Modifications at V8 Speed and Resto Shop Photo Gallery

This cool 1957 Ford Thunderbird came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in tribute to the owner's Father who owned several of these cool Birds over the years.   Today, we're going to make this one more powerful and reliable for years of trouble-free cruising.   The V8 Speed & Resto Shop team will be installing a custom chassis, complete with Wilwood brakes, coil-over shocks, and upgrade the sway bars for better handling.   The 'Bird will have far more Thunder thanks to a new Ford Racing 5.0 V8 cranking out 430 HP and over 400 lbs.-ft. of torque.   Additionally, we're installing a 6-speed automatic transmission spinning that steam back to a new 9" rear axle.    Upgraded audio and lighting will make it even more fun to drive.  Follow along as we make the upgrades on this slick '57 Thunderbird!

1963 Imperial Crown Convertible Maintenance at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This is a very cool car, a 1963 Imperial Crown Convertible.    It's one of approximately 513 built, and it's showing less than 28,000 miles.   It's powered by a 413 Wedge V8 connected to a pushbutton automatic transmission.    We love the space-age Virgil Exner "Forward Look" styling, with cool details like the headlight pods and the "sqaure" steering wheel.  The current owner has known the car since he was a kid, and knows the original owning family.  It's been sitting for a number of years, and it came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop to be brought back to safe driving condition.
