Description
Transformed into a Warbird Gasser replica, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird stands as a striking example of classic design fused with drag racing spirit. This full fiberglass car, a characteristic reminiscent of real gassers seeking to minimize weight, is painted in a sleek white, showcasing its dynamic and aggressive stance. The vehicle features gasser-specific elements like exhaust cutouts, a front bumper delete, and ladder bars with leaf springs. While it is far from a typical Thunderbird, this .....
replica retains a sense of luxury with leather seats and power windows, unusual for a dragstrip car, hinting at its dual purpose for both show and occasional cruising.

Underneath the hood, the Thunderbird houses a formidable 406 CI V8 engine, a bored-out version of the original 400 CI, equipped with Chevrolet "turbo" angle plug heads that are fully ported. This powerplant is matched with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, providing a blend of performance and ease of driving. The engine breathes through a Holley 750cfm carburetor topped with a "Garlits injection" cover, giving it the appearance of a Hillborn style injection. The vehicle also features homemade headers leading to a dual exhaust system, enhancing its auditory and performance appeal. The suspension setup includes 56-62 Corvette front spindles and a Speedway motors front axle and springs, paired with a Mopar B Body 8 3/4 rear axle.
