  • COMPLETE REAR LIGHTS + CARBURETOR FOR 390 ENGINE

    THE ENGINE ON MY 1960 THUNDERBIRD HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A 390 ENGINE FROM A MERCURY CIRCA 67-69. THE ENGINE IS FINE BUT THE AUTO CHOKE ON THE CARB IS BROKEN INTERNALY AND I NEED A REPLACEMENT CARB. IT HAS A LINKAGE CONNECTION(NOT CABLE) WITH A ROUND BLACK CAP ON THE CORNER WHICH CONTAINS THE RELEASE SPRING THIS CAP IS HELD ON BY THREE BOLTS.

    I ALSO REQUIRE TWO COMPLETE REAR LIGHTS WITH GOOD CHROME AS THE ONES I HAVE ON THE CAR AT PRESENT ARE PITTED. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU CAN HELP. KEN

      Please could you supply Alex with some nice photos of your T-Bird for our members photo album.
      We have no photos of any 60 Covertible on it and your Black beauty is one fine Machine!
      Casey if your reading this and saw Ken,s car you would be bowled over!
      Ken please tell the forum here about your car and its restoration history it makes for enjoyable reading.
      Kev.

        It is very hard to find a NOS set of rear tail light chrome waffle assemblies. I have only seen one NOS waffle plate for a 1959 a few years ago. That was only for one side.

        I have not heard that they will be reproducing these parts any time soon.

        Your only real choice is to rechrome these pieces. You will need to find a place that has experience rechroming pot metal - a place where the they fill in the pits, not just grind them out.

        Welcome to the Squarebirds message board.

            go to the squarebirds homepage or "Main Site" (see above).
            right below the pictures of cars, there is a link to members' home pages.
