Cool find.

I wonder what's happend to it since 2005. It doesn't look like the article has been updated since then.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

I just read an article about this truck in the September issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines magazine.
The truck is still owned by the owner listed in the email . It states that he now displays the truck in unrestored, as-raced condition.

Amazing what kind of cars ends up in junkyards, and to think if these people were car smart they would at least try to offer to sell it to someone who might want to try to put it back on the road, guess to some people it's still just a car or in this case just a truck.

What a shame...

97 Thunderbird LX 4.6 sohc, 60,000 original miles and lots of room for improvement.... All show and no go for now...

65k for an original.

http://www.dragzine.com/news/origina...bay-for-65000/

These are extremely rare. Even way, way more rare than the elephant. But such a truck with prominence, and an engine such as this could be a sound collectible. Without it the truck isn't really worth much.

But hay, I don't know about anybody else... Money doesn't always drive my passion. (Dippin' below the teens does.)

The truck is definitely a prize even as a rolling chassis. I hope someone does/has properly install the definitive opitome of Ford's line of FE (Ford/Edsel) engines.



So, ah, does the fourth one from the left turn cw, or ccw? ...lol. (Don't forget the chain!)

The sprocket in the middle drives an idler shaft where an in block cam would be. Drives the distributor, and oil pump shaft. Notice too. the way the block extends way below the (steel) crankshaft center line. This is to combat crank web cracking under hard launches. (Known as a "Y" block.) Big block Mopars do too, but not that far, lol... Factory roller rockers, and Sodium filled exhaust valve stems. (Make that canted valves.) Pretty kool stuff...Think I could shoe horn one into my '95? ha, ha...
