Asked by May 01, 2018 at 04:13 PM about the 1978 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: General

Was the 78 thunderbird ever made with a
390 engine?

2 Answers


I don't think so. I've seen them with mostly 351 and 400


I think 76 was the last year for the FE but those were in pickups. Medium and heavy trucks used them up to 78. The last year for the 390 in a T-bird was probably 1967.
