We searched far and wide for a good 1978 T-Bird! We finally found one a little over a month ago in Kissimmee Florida, right in our backyard! This car was a good candidate for the build as it was recently mechanically serviced, and was pampered its whole life! It was sold new at Seeyle Ford in Kalamazoo! The Paint is original and shows very well, the color code is U2 lipstick red. We worked with Slammered Inc to devise a plan for the T-Bird, we opted to keep it stock in regards to the drivetrain and exterior appearance, but add a flare of custom touches with the use of Detroit Steel Wheels and Accuair Air Ride along with new Front end components by PST Technologies. She Rides Awesome down the road. New correctly measured KYB shocks were added to the rear and front sway bar is intact up front, so it handles just like a cruise ship, taking waves with no issues at all!


The interior is in immaculate condition, The dash shows little to no wear. The front seats are in excellent shape and all the seat motors work as they should. The rear seats are like new. The White leather had no rips or tears, and there are no stains in the carpet. All the glass is in great shape and the windows go up and down as they should. The door cards show little to no wear, headliner does have 2 small spots of discoloration( see gallery ). All of the gauges look and perform as they should. The Accuair Air Ride system can be controlled by your phone and or a small hand held digital controller with multiple pre sets. The Air conditioning is cold and the radio works as it should! The power antenna really gives this big barge some class!


The paint is the original u2 code and shows very well for a 70s car. There are minor imperfections throughout but overall she is solid and needs nothing. All of the bright work, chrome and vinyl accents are in excellent condition. We easily rate the paint a 7.5 out of 10. The wheels are Mobsteel 20x8s wrapped in specially ordered very expensive) white walls to match the exterior trim. When you are on the highway this thing literally breaks everyones neck, you get thumbs ups and basically eye sex from all the ladies. It is a car that is pleasurable to all audiences as it is classy yet modern with its new wheels and suspension.


Powered by a 302ci motor she goes down the road smoothly. The muffler was original to the car when we received it and our little burnout stunt blew her out, and she actually sounds better than ever now! The motor and trans do no leak, and it is actually very solid on the underside. The suspension has been completely overhauled front to back with the latest in air ride technology, along with a host of bushings and end links. She does not shake at highway speeds and really does ride nice. You can daily drive this car with no issues at all. The car is turn key as it sits, she does not need a single thing to enjoy. You can fly in and drive her home. Transmission and rear end are in excellent shape
