2 questions ?
 
#1 were the fender skirts an OPTION on the 60?
#2 I dont have the original "Cruisamatic
is that just an FX ? and will the Old round Bellhousing C6 work in its place without giving me Fits on the linkage?
Thanks

Yes, fender skirts were an option. If you have the skirt pins installed then it came with skirts. If not, then it didn't.

The cruise-o-matics used on Thunderbirds were MX not FX. The C6 bell housing will bolt up fine. The linkage should not be a major issue. The transmission mount will need some modification though.

Thanks for the response, Like Ive said my folks bot this bird when I was just a young teen. I dont remember skirts on it but was not sure .

Probably going to go with the C6 simply becuase they are easier to install :D
I remember trying to Fight the FX style on to the converter :eek:

Im sure Ill have a million more questions aftre i get it back from the Beauty shop and start trying to get it all back together.

Make sure you match the flex plate with the starter for any given trans.
