Matt's 1983 Thunderbird Base

(Photo 1)

Owner *: Matt
Model *: Thunderbird Base
Engine *: 5.0L V8 (302cid)
Transmission *: C5 3-speedo Automatic
Year Purchased: 2019
State/Province: NJ
Country: United States
Purchased as my first car from the family of the original owner. It had a total of 184000 miles on it. It was originally a 3.8 V6 but that engine needed out of car work so instead I pulled a 5.0L V8 from a 88 F-250 to swap in using a 2100 carb and intake from a 72 Bronco.

Future Plans:
Repaint in factory color, complete new exhaust with Mustang headers and either duals or single 3in. Swap in a HO cam and 4 barrel carb.
