Question type: Maintenance & Repair

so i picked up a 66 ford thunderbird for 50 dollars and now am working on

an original factory fit but will do aftermarket if i have to ive done many
restorations on some older cars but this is the biggest project i have picked

My Advice would be to call around a lot of Junk Yards an see if they might have one. I know a junk yard in Ohio that just might have the original hood for that vehicle. There's several here in Eastern Kentucky. It's always good to restore old vehicles to keep them alive. I have a 55 Chevy dulley I'm restoring! Good luck with the Restore.

T_Bird262, Google some junk yards in Kentucky, Ohio an West Virginia! You will find a hood for your T-Bird!

Call Jim in NC. He has several parts cars. Might be worth a ride to his place for other parts as well. His number is (336) 784-9363
