1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo (Thunder Chicken)

Last updated May 25, 2009

Found the car in Hudson, drove out to look it over and wound up coming home with it!

Factory Options

Turbo/Intercooled 2.3, 5-speed, rear wheel drive.


Existing mods: T3, dual exhaust, factory intercooler (for now), 255 lph fuel pump, msd coil.

Up coming mods: Ported head with roller cam, semi gutted upper/lower intake, ported exhaust manifold, 3" exhaust, 15-18lbs boost with manual boost controller, front mount intercooler, 3.73, short shifter, tubular rear control arms. Shooting for 300 hp at the wheels. May need more boost, but this should be a decent start!
