New old toy

I always liked classic cars and finally had the means to get one. Bought a 1958 Ford Thunderbird, exactly 58 years old. It was restored by the previous owner in 2012, but there are still some things to solve.

Re: New old toy

That is a gorgeous classic. Do keep us updated on what you're going to do with it. I think a lot of us would definitely be interested to follow your "upgrades"!

For now only planning to solve existing problems, like dragging brakes, hard starting and a leak in the power steering actuator. Just changed all the brake cylinders (old ones where rusty inside) and overhauled the brake master cylinder and power brake unit. Unfortunately cracked a manifold from the brake system, for which a new (used) one is on its way from the States. The power steering leak is small, so will postpone that for when the rainy season starts, end of November. The bird will not leave the garage when rain is expected.
