Default RE: Help!

Welcome to the site.

We are here to help.

The 1958-1960 Thunderbirds were well made reliable cars. Their strength and their weak point is the unibody construction. The strength is that they are very solid and have no rattles from the body despite the years. The weakness is that if there is rust, in the inner rockers, it is difficult to repair.

Engine rebuilds can vary form $1000 to $4000. It depends on how worn the engine is and what you want to have done.

Tranny rebuilds can vary from $1000 to $2000. Luckily these transmissions are relatively simple. someone recently posted a mail order company that will exchange your transmission for a rebuilt one.
