Default Tbirds at Muscle Car Madness, New Zealand

Alistair has been on holiday to the South Island! Here is what he had to say about getting the loan engine and making the trip the Muscle Car Madness.. He sends his regards to you.

Yes, I got the loan engine of my club mate. It has been a major help, allowing me to use the car through summer. The trip to the South Island went really well, we did 2400km (1400 miles) without any major issues, apart from a broken rear air bag mount which we had repaired while we were away.

The show had some quite different Tbirds, a ’63 (if I recall correctly) with portholes added to the roof pillar, and ’59 done up Nascar style.

I got the engine that Dave (simplyconnected) pointed out on eBay, plus the same guy supplied a bunch of engine parts. It got shipped early January, and the crate is due here on feb 4. Then I’ll get the machining etc done, source some more parts, and hope to have the engine built and fitted over winter ready for next summer.

I’m thinking about getting an aftermarket alloy intake, plus there’s a place in the US that does custom headers to fit 61 to 66, so if I go ahead with that (I’ve already purchased a mild Comp Cam and lifters kit) it should wake the old girl up a bit

Below are the pix of the '62, '63 and '59 that he sent me.
