All completely restored and finished in its original colors of Raven Black and Snowshoe White paint scheme, with brand new black and white interior. Under hood rests the numbers-matching M-Code 292 V8 \"Thunderbird Special\"engine. With factory dual exhaust ported through the rear bumper it produces 202 horsepower and 289 ft/lbs of torque. When cranked, all is proven true with a quick start up and a perfect idle that's extremely smooth.
