And this mix of both striking and speedy seem to be amplified on this example with a lowered suspension. In fact, everything on this car looks like it was meant to inspire a sporty feeling.

Pop the hood and you’ll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. It’s the correct Z-code 390 cubic-inch V8. This optional “Thunderbird” powerhouse looks great dressed in gold on the valve covers and a matching air cleaner.
