'58 Thunderbird

This 58 Thunderbird is well on its way to a complete custom restoration... As if the squarebirds didn't sit low enough on stock suspension... This one lays down even better on air ride...


1958 Thunderbird We have the car stripped and ready for the blaster.

1958 Thunderbird Its back from the blaster and the rear quarter panel and rocker are repaired.

1958 Thunderbird Here is another look at the floor pans and rocker repair.

1958 Thunderbird The rotisserie makes fixing the underside a breeze. Here we have the floor pan torque boxes and inner rocker structure repaired.

1958 Thunderbird It's time to install the front suspension with Air Ride Technologies bags.

1958 Thunderbird Its a bit hard to see from this picture but we did a custom installalation of an Air Ride Technologies triagulated 4 link suspension. The underside of the car was sprayed with chassis black paint and the stock 9 inch rear was updated with traction lock and Explorer disc brakes.

1958 Thunderbird This thing is ready to go to the paint shop. It is going to be cool!

1958 Thunderbird The engine bay was cleaned up with the fire wall filled and smoothed. Then it was sprayed with a custom House of Color  orange paint.

'58 Thunderbird  Put a set of blades on this thing and you could mow the grass with it!

Gordy's 58

Here Darrin is making sure that the engine is set at the right angle.


58 Thunderbird Custom four row aluminum radiator installed...

Gordy The original power steering was a design that left handling and road feel a bit to be desired. We found a after market company that utilizes a GM 605 power steering box. No longer is the steering a weak point on this car...
