What I am looking for is where to buy stuff for this car? Surprisingly , it does NOT need chrome trim parts. They are in good shape. I need interior mostly, and probably stuff like a water pump and all. Is there a place that specializes in these cars?
the car has the thunderbird 312 V8, is that the same block as a 302 or 289? It looks pretty different so I'm assuming no.
There are places that specialise in those cars. I think there is a place in Cal called Carpenters. The 312 is a Y Block, nothing in common with a small block. What body style is it? I like the Victoria. Friend of mine here in Australia has a 56 Crown Victoria, the one with a Tiara.
