I had a 1967 version like this with a 390.
This was one of Lee Iaccoa's brain childs.
The general public did not like it at the time.
I can tell you from my personal experieance with this style t-bird that they
are sweet when they run right but are very complicated.
Full dual exhaust system, sequential turn signals, lots and lots of vaccuum
controlled goodies (including those headlight doors) and electronics, On mine
the steering wheel tilted away from you when you opend the door, dual piston
front disk brakes, c6 automatic, double cardon u joints, the window motors tore
up gear sets like crazy, there seems to be alot of chrome missing from under
the dash on this one. On my 67 which had front buckets and a center console
everything under the dash was sealed with what looked like brushed stainless
The parking brake auto released when you put it in drive (another vaccuum
powered thing). Had neat idiot lights up in the headliner above the mirror.
Cool car but be prepared.
At least in 68 they went to electric wiper motor. in 67 they used the power
steering pump to run the wipers with six selectable speeds.
