1972 Thunderbird

Was wondering if anyone can tell me where I can find a good OEM manual for the 1972 Thunderbird with 460. I specifically want to know about the vacuum configuration and color coding as well as all the stats to make all the wiring and hoses look stock.

I have the 1972 Shop manual set but they say nothing about this. Internet searches turned up nothing and E-Bay is a bust.

I have had the engine rebuilt and am starting on the interior but want to get the engine as close to stock as possible. Also I want to know where the OEM stickers go and what stickers I need. I ordered a sticker kit but am unsure of what all is included.

Thanks all

P.S. If you want to see her look here

Be sure to check out the before and after picks!

Re: 1972 Thunderbird

Like your Bird. I am the second owner of a 72 T-bird with the 460. It is black with read interior and 92k miles. I purchased it in Kansas City in 2000. I purchased it without my wife knowing about it and she was not impressed when I brought it home but I think it has grown on her. I just accessed this site for the first time today as I moved from Nebraska to Phoenix, Az 3 years ago but only today had the car shipped out to me. Funny that you bought yours here. It's just a car that you don't see at the car shows.
If you need a runner to look at parts let me know as I found 2 72's at local junk yards. If you have any advise on how to fix a inoperative clock and fuel gage I would appreciate a starting point to find out the problem. I am more interested in fixing the gas gage at this time.
I can be reached at this site or email bmadison3@cox.net
