Classic car technician Steve has continued his work on our 1956 Ford Thunderbird. His recent work began by fitting a new battery tray before also fitting new power steering rams.
Steve went on to clean the sump and engine gasket faces as well as painting the sump and oil pump. After painting, these were also fitted back onto the car.
The brake pipe going to the near-side front wheel was found to be crushed so this was replaced.
Our 1956 Ford Thunderbird is a stunning car to look at and it’s great to know that Steve’s work is helping to keep it on the road for its owner to enjoy into the future.
Classic car technician Steve has been working on our 1956 Ford Thunderbird.
During his investigation, he found that the anti-roll bar bushes were cracked and perished. This was also the case with the power steering hose. Steve also found that the right-hand exhaust manifold was cracked and leaking.
Other issues that Steve noticed included the paint peeling off the sump and the rear shackle bushes being cracked and perished.
These issues will need to be resolved before this eye-catching classic car can get back out on the road.
