I have a 66 VIN 6Y87Q123529 and I'd like to know how many Town Landau with 428 motor were built in 1966 and was this the only year for the 428 in the Thunderbird?

The Town Landau was body style 63D, of which 35,105 were built during the 1966 model year. The 428 was optional, but was probably fairly popular. Build numbers by engine were not immediately available to me but you could check out the Standard Catalog of American Cars, 1946-1976, for this information if need be.

Thanks, I've checked the catalog and no joy. I also wrote Ford and I'm waiting for their reply.

It had the same 428 cubic inch engine horsepower as the original Shelby Mustang 428 thus had more power then the standard 428 or the 390 offered in T-Birds. Of course the weight of the T-bird kept the power to weight ratio lower then the Mustang but still made for spirited performance for a luxury car of the day.
