Nice work Rob! It is nice to see some T code being restored that nicely.
It is too bad we all live so far apart I would love to come spend some time in your garages with you.

Nice looking car. That vinyl top looks fantastic with the red body and black hood treatment. Is it a 3 speed or auto? For some strange reason I would like to have a T code with a three speed for a daily driver in the non winter months. Back to the basics I guess.

She be a three speed el-manual. A 5 speed would be a huge upgrade!!

If it wasn't all original, I'd say it needed a Thunderbird Super Coupe supercharged V-6 and 5 speed.

Steve,
That would be a hoot for sure. My brother owns a 92 S/C Bird that we have put a larger blower, long tube headers and 2.5 exhaust. bigger injectors and blah blah blah. It is a 5 speed with 3.23 gears. It is a rocket ship of a V6.

But it is about as wide as a 390 motor!! With all the stuff it would be a chore to get in for sure.

Now a brand new 2.0 Eco Boost 4 shooter in-line would fit awesome!!!

1968 Cougar GT-E 427 W Code

Check it out. This car limped into my garage two days ago needing a lot of love. Fresh out of the Mecum auction. I now know why they push the cars over the auction podium. They run like crap! This is one of the rarest Cougars you can buy. Powered by a 427 coupled to an automatic. Lots of work to get it in driving condition.

Rob
