1995 Thunderbird With Big Bore 5.0 DOHC

Unfortunately, the time has come for me to have to sell my 95 Thunderbird. I'm hoping that it'll find a good home where someone has more time that I have. The car runs great, but needs some basic maintenance. For example, one of the heater hoses has a small leak that I haven't had time to fix yet.

Engine: 2003 4.6 DOHC Mach I engine bored and resleeved with Ford Racing 5.0 Big Bore components
3.7in Bore Forged Flattop Diamond Racing Pistons with 4 valve reliefs, Ford Racing 94mm Cylinder Sleeves, 94mm Cometic Head Gaskets, Total Seal Rings, Hawks Racing Lightweight Forged Racing Rods, Forged Crank, ARP Main Studs
Trans: 2001 4R70W Custom built
10.5in 3000 Stall TC, Mechanical Diode One Way Clutch, Extra Friction Disks added to clutch drums, Increased Line Presure, Upgraded Valve Body, Modified Transgo Shift Kit
Other Mods
8.8 Trakloc with 3.73 gears, custom built one piece driveshaft, 80mm LMAF, Kooks 3/4 headers, Walbro 255lph fuel pump, New 17 inch rims and tires added this summer, Taurus SHO Gauge Cluster
Other Items Included, not installed
1996 ECM and full engine wiring harness, 16in Super Coupe Rims

What drive shaft does it have?

What's with the '97 instrument cluster in a '95?

Thanks.

I originally had an aluminum one that broke shortly after the engine swap. The custom steel driveshaft was built by Suburban Driveline in Villa Park, IL.

As for the 97 instrument cluster, I just really liked the look of the SHO instrument cluster better and wanted a better RPM guage.

Thanks

XR7-4.6,
I'm sure I could get quite a bit more for the car, but with being busy lately, the car's just been sitting in the garage most of the time.

Woodman,
I'm still running the stock 2003 Mustang Mach I cams.

Maybe...



The motor will be going into my wife's Mustang project. The rest is up for grabs. If some one wants the roller they should speak up now before we tear it down.
