About “blackbird”

This car has had many small issues since i picked it up.
it seemed as soon as you got one thing fixed another one popped up.
battery,alternator,water pump, radiator...all new.
i spent the majority of the year neglecting it while i worked on my z28.
recently the valves started chattering and i decided to go for broke and overhaul the car,
4 new tires( larger option sizes)
hatch and hood replaced
new cat back exhaust
the engine got really overhauled
new cylinderheads and valves, camshaft intake manifold
after christmas going after similiar suspension upgrades to the z28.
over 3k spent in 2 weeks!

About “1993 ford thunderbird lx”

1993 ford thunderbird so 4 jast the rims weing dunn Year to Year Changes


1991 Ford Thunderbird: For 1991, a V8 option was back: a 5.0-liter engine rated at 200 horsepower.
1992 Ford Thunderbird: Sport models had a standard V8, making four models in all: base, Sport, LX, and SC. LX/Sport front ends got the SC's faired air intakes and aero skirting. All models wore new full-width taillights.
1993 Ford Thunderbird: Base and Sport models were gone, leaving only the LX and Super Coupe. Thunderbirds still had no airbag at all.
1994 Ford Thunderbird: An overhead-cam 4.6-liter V8 arrived for '94, along with driver- and passenger-side airbags and optional traction control. T-Birds featured new front/rear fascias, a new hood, and headlights. Motorized seatbelts were gone.
1995 Ford Thunderbird: Variable-assist power steering no longer was standard on the LX, except with V8 power.
1996 Ford Thunderbird: No more Super Coupes went to dealerships, but Thunderbird continued in LX guise. Extensive styling changes included new fascias, clear-lens headlights, and a new grille with larger opening. Color-keyed body moldings were integrated with door panels.
1997 Ford Thunderbird: Revisions to the dash and interior layout were the major change for '97. The simplified instrument cluster featured new gauges with orange needles, while warning lights replaced the oil pressure gauge and ammeter. The center console was redesigned to provide dual cupholders, a coin holder, and larger storage bin. Ford also made four-wheel disc brakes standard. At the end of the model year, Ford announced the end of Thunderbird production.
