Picture Album Resurection of the Thunderbird

Team RRC purchased 2 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupes with 2.3 liter engines, 5 speed manual Transmisions. One had a cage in it and the other was a complete car for parts. The roll cage was removed to make way for a NASCAR Style cage to be installed. The car was striped and rebuilt. Engine was checked over and head was removed, rebuilt. Every nut, bolt, wire, etc.. has been gone over. Performace and Saftey is number 1 to Team RRC. Hours of work, sweat and research has gone into this car to ensure the saftey and reliability of this one of kind race car.
