    You may find the answer to your question on John Draxler's Thunderbird Ranch website. Go to it, slide down the left side to Concours Specs for the 1961-1963 Bulletbird..

      Hi Ray,,

      No luck there.

      I think that a lot of the suspension and steering parts were originally black.
      I have powdercoated the upper and lower control arms a semi gloss black.as well as the sway bar,front suspension upper bumper bracket,inner fender shields.

      Thanks Warren

        Hi Warren,

        The one person that can probably answer your questions is Alan Tast. Alan is one of the best Tbird experts in the world, if not THE best! Send him a Private Message with your questions and see if he can give you the answers. I do not have any Official Factory Specs on the Bulletbirds. Here is his user name on the Forum. Alan H.
