Re: 1980 Radiator p/n

This radiator on my cross ref charts shows it's the same radiator for 1980-88 T-bird as well as 1980-93 Mustang....I replaced my SVO radiator with a spectra premium #CU556 fr...

Re: Is this fourm dead?

I just recently got away from TCCoA, I was there for nearly 10 years and it was "trying" most of the time BUT that's why I'm here, when it comes to the preservation and restoration of my T-bird, I don't need a facebook group, I need a real car club like VTCI.................
