I like the Gold. I was looking for a Goldenglow Yellow 56 when I came across the Thunderbird Green.

Here is another useful site for general 55-57 info.

Dot Lang who is one of the "Grand Dames" of Thunderbird Lore and History has that site. She also has a 57.

The 351 looks great in there. Does it look like there were any major problems getting it in there? I would suppose the performance is a lot better than our old Y-Blocks. It still looks like a tight fit to add a booster on the firewall from what I can see.

Since the booster was disconnected were there also other changes made to the brake system? Does it have a dual Master Cylinder?

I see you have a '65 Vette also. I graduated from HS in 65 and always had a fondness for that year. Drop in a pic of that if you get a chance. What are you running in it?

This car was originally Raven black with red interior, at some point in it's life it got a make over. My wife likes the yellow so if I can save the paint I will (it's not real good). Further she wants white interior!

Our '65 Vette is a real 396 car, we bought it as a basket case in 2004 and did a complete frame off resto. Fortunately the TBird doesn't need that amount of work.
I tried to attache a pic of it but I keep getting the dreaded red X
