1968 Ford Thunderbird Tudor Hardtop

This body style is the rarest of the 1968 Thunderbirds; Allen's car is especially rare as it's a low-option car, with no interior power options. A Thunder Jet 429 hides beneath the hood.

Owner: The Goss Family

"Originally purchased new by Richard and Izabelle Cargill. When the Cargill's passed the car was bought at auction by relatives (The Goss's). The Goss Family (currently restoring the car) can remember their Uncle Dick and Izzy filling the car with airplane fuel and running the car briskly up and down the runway. (Dick was a pilot.)

First restoration steps were to get the car to stop again, (brakes).  Next will be fuel and carberation, followed by a general fixing and ironing out of all the little querks here and there.  Finally followed by some fresh paint."

Owner: Jim Strebe

"This is the car we call Christine, it is a '68 four door 429. This is almost the exact condition it was in when I bought it.  I have completely rebuilt the suspension. Other than that it's the way she came.  This is yet unconfirmed but I was told that she used to be a test bed car for the design of the new Lincolns. It still has some antilock brake test equipment installed on it.  It has no options other than shoulder belts, power steering and rear window blower.  This car likes to crash into Mopars when you're not watching (hence the name Christine).

Owner: John Nichols

"A word about the pigs in front of the car. Some people called it "Thunderchicken," I said no, it is a "Thunderhog" and the name stuck. My wife found the pigs at Wal Mart and dressed them and now they are our mascots."

John's Thunderbird is equipped with the 360 hp Thunder Jet 429, which has been chromed, along with chrome underhood accessories. Custom pinstripping and Lake Pipes are among the modifications.
