1978 Ford Thunderbird Diamond Jubilee Edition - Blue
1978 Ford Thunderbird Diamond Jubilee Edition Blue
Great shape for how old it is, mostly all original.
I have many more pics, email me if you would like to see more.
I believe I am the 2nd or 3rd owner, I have the original title.
Just recently got it up and running
Runs and drives great, transmission shifts perfect, breaks work great
Power Windows: (Drivers works fine, passengers goes kinda slow)
Power Seats: (works great)
Power Locks: (not working)
Cruise Control: (not hooked up, but was working before being unhooked)
Power Steering: (not hooked up)
Dual Exhaust: (all new pipe and mufflers, but just kinda rigged up, passengers goes all the way to the back, drivers needs piece going over axle)
Headlights, taillights, blinkers, and break lights all work
Original Body, Frame, Rims, Interior
Body is in great shape, but will need some minor rust repair.
The underside of the floor boards will need attention, drivers side has a little hole.
Inner fenders have some pieces rotted away.
Drivers fender has some in the bottom left
Passengers fender got a little dented when trying to move it around.
Brakes were all new about 6 years ago, new pads, shoes, lines/hoses
It originally had a 351m engine in it, but was removed and replaced
with an 80's late model 302/5.0 HO High Output, because of gas mileage and power
302 has been rebuilt.
Engine has a Roller Cam and Lifters, and Forged Pistons
NEW: Rings, Main/Rod/Cam Bearings, Oil Pump, Gaskets/Seals, High Performance Timing Set
Camshaft timing has been set at 4 degrees advanced, (8 degrees from stock)
Transmission is an FMX. I swapped bellhousings to fit the 302, but I still have the original bellhousing.
Transmission works perfect, shifts through all the gears perfectly.
Rear Axle has 2.50 gear ratio
Originally had Air Conditioning but my dad accidentally scrapped the pump not knowing it was for the tbird.
