For sale in our Tampa showroom is a resto-mod 1960 Ford Thunderbird. This big bird is unlike any you will likely see any time soon. It's powered by a mighty 416 cubic inch stroker engine. The 390 cubic inch FE big block was built and stroked by Ault & Lames Speed Shop in Dayton, Ohio in late 2008. Built using top of the line parts and accessories, including: Eagle 428 crankshaft and rods, Ross diamond .030 over bored pistons, Edelbrock aluminum heads and intake, Crane hydraulic roller camshaft and lifters, Harland Sharp roller rockers, MSD fuel injection, Crane distributor and ignition box, Mildon high capacity water pump and oil pan, Griffin custom aluminum radiator, and Maradyne twin electric fans. The engine is surrounded by a Painless complete wiring harness and Powermaster performance electrical system. This big block Thunderbird for sale sounds like a monster, rumbling through headers and dual exhaust. The power is transferred through a performance built AOD Automatic with FE bell housing. It packs a punch with a 2,200 stall converter and Lokar shifter. It puts the power to the pavement via a 3.10 geared 9 inch Ford rear end. All that go is backed by plenty of stopping power, all four corners carry Stainless Steel Brake Corporation performance brakes, with slotted and drilled rotors. The red SSBC brake calipers can be seen behind the black 17" Cobra R wheels with Thunderbird center caps, wrapped in Nexen performance radials. The exterior is a stunning shade of Graphite Grey Metallic, with a Ruby Red Metallic engine bay providing some extra eye candy at shows. The car is super straight and show quality, with nice chrome, deep glossy paint, and nice trim. The subtle muscular cues like the hood scoop let you know that this 1960 Ford restomod for sale isn't just a cruiser, but a bruiser too. The color scheme has a vintage hot rod vibe, yet with upgraded wheels and brakes, it appears to be a mean and modern muscle car, at the exact same time. The interior carries over the modern muscle theme while sticking to the luxury feel Ford intended, with custom grey cloth and Naugahyde interior. Modern trim, such as the: Lokar gas pedal, bucket seats, Zoop's steering wheel, custom sound system, and Autometer gauge set, accents the interior, giving the Ford Thunderbird for sale a look like no other. Convenience and comfort was put as a top priority during the build and can be seen in the: Power driver's seat, power windows, electric wipers, and air conditioning with upgraded Sanden compressor. This is the epitome of a restomodded Ford and it's looking for a new owner. Options include: A/C, AM/FM radio with CD, cloth and vinyl interior, aluminum/alloy wheels wrapped in performance radial tires, power steering, power seat, seat belts, 4 wheel disc brakes, and power windows.
