95 T-bird

I'm about to pick up a 95 T-bird that I will use as my daily driver, the car was my father in-laws but he moved to another state and my mother in-law said take the car or she was going to give it away to her friend. I don't know much about t-birds but I think it's a 302 maybe 6cly it needs a new paint job and a little work but hey it was free. The passenger side window don't roll down but I can hear the motor trying to pull it down, any ideas why that is? I don't think the heater or a/c works at all I will have to look at it and see what the problem is.

You'll have to remove the door panel to check it out. It sounds like it's probably the regulator or the gears.

Re: 95 T-bird

The a/c is probably a compressor and a condenser. Does the blower moter work? the a/c system may also need to be converted to R 34. Paint work is cheap. Whole car for maybe 1200 at most, aslong as the color stays same. Maaco can do it really cheap. Ford built a hell of a car in my opinion. Its a fox body. Same as the stang I believe. The engine internals are pdetty darn strong, not bullit proof, but strong. They had the supercoupe whicn was a supercharged 3.8. Restore her and be proud. Best part is she is free.

Just to clarify, the Ford Thunderbird is actually the MN12 platform (Mid-Size North American Project 12). It is NOT a fox body by any nature. Let's not confuse Van98.
