View Full Version : Help with selecting engine & transmission

Hi my name is Eric, can you help me find a 352 or 390 and replacement Transmission for my 59 Thunderbird

The engine had 3 cracks and was not rebuildable

I think I have a Com transmission that needs rebuilding as well

Can you suggest what my best way to proceed? If I go the 390/C6 tranny route will I have to change motor/tranny mounts?

A 390 is basically a bored out 352 so it will fit using the same mounts. A C6 transmission will need some trans mount modifications to fit in a squarebird.
