Welcome to the board.

It is not an easy filter to find since it has very limited application. I think it may have been only used in 1960.

These show up on eBay frrequently. Many of the T-Bird parts vendors have them. See our links page on the main website.

If you don't know what this filter looks like see: http://www.squarebirds.org/1960fuel_filter.htm

I don't know why that filter was only used 1960. It is a simple design. It is easy to remove and does not leak. It is not very different from other spin on fuel filters. The same basic Ford 4100 carburetor was used many more years. I would like to know the story behind the discontinuation of that fuel filter.

If you have a 1958 or 1959 Thunderbird, you are even worse off. The fuel filter that fit in the fuel pump for 352's was unavailable by 1960. Motors lists an in-line bowel fuel filter assembly as the replacement fuel filters for 1958-59 Thunderbirds. these are actually quite easy to get and the paper fuel filter element is usually in stock in auto parts stores since it has so many applications.

Note the inline fuel filter in the lower left hand part of the picture of my 1959 Thunderbird.

The inline glass bowl filter looks just like the ones used on the Little Birds. Probably also used on the middle '50's sedans.

I think that fuel filter bowl was used on other marques of cars and probably was also used in trucks and farm tractors. that is why it so common.
