    Always check the VIN of 66 birds as quite a few came with a 428. A fire isn't likely to hurt the block and definitely wouldn't hurt the crank which is the hardest thing to find.

    I've always loved those model T-Birds, and have actually been seriously thinking lately about picking up a T-Bird of that particular vintage, and storing it back in my Storage Pod, for future Restoration. Would love to have one of those to go along with my '88. There is a '66-'68 for sale about 35 miles from here, and I'm thinking I might bite if the price is right.

    Love how someone spray painted "SAVE" on that poor old MKV, shows that someone had good intentions, though I doubt anyone ever did, looks too far gone to be worth it, and nice examples are easily found in the $3-5K range.

    Im willing to bet it was the salvage yard that painted that on, to insure it doesnt get sent to the crusher yet. They probably want to strip parts off it first.

    I felt like reviving this thread - I bought a Mark V DJE last summer. Got a whole bunch of parts shipped from a guy in the Maritimes including mint front seats, console, opera windows etc. They're probably my favorite '70s Lincoln, and arguably the most collectable of that era (aside from the '79 Collector's Series, but you have to put up with the 400 2bbl in those, no 460 option).

    Both the 460 and dual exhausts were actually options on the '78 Mark V, including the DJE (460, duals, sunroof, CB, block heater were the only DJE options, IIRC). They were commonly ordered, so 400-powered '78s are somewhat rare. I've never seen or heard of a 400 in a DJE, although it was possible.

    '77s had the 460 standard everywhere except California (I believe), and '79s were 400 only.

    What ever became of this junkyard DJE?

    My second car was a dj t-bird bought new by my grandmother,the year 1984 I was 16 car had 40k on it. If I only knew what it would be worth today,I still would have beat the crap out of it. I was 16 after all! They made around 18k of the Thunderbirds,not many had power sun roof,mine did.so many memories of that car! One of my faves was soaking the underclassmen whenever it wouLd rain I would get up to about 35mph and ride the curb and just douche them as they were walking home! Mine had the 351m power rating was about the same as my 89 Vic, but man did it have some torque,it would do massive one wheel burnouts. A fine Ford automobile!
