Help with cars

I'm looking at acquiring a 1957 Ford T-Bird convertible w/ hard top that is fairly cheap. The whole car is Turquoise, everything from exterior paint to the dash of the car. The car also has a weak engine (i.e. it stalls a lot). I was wondering if they would have the stock items so i could change it from turquoise to a Cherry red and white leathered car. Does anyone have any ideas to help me with the car? Any ideas on a new engine maybe?

Well I personally have a 1968 Camaro and I have the same issue. I was wondering how can I keep my car classic and original without having to put new parts in. Well the person I bought it off so happens to be very skilled with restoration. So he showed me a catalog that gives me all original parts for camaro's from the year 1967-69. I believe that they will have one for your T-Bird. They have pretty much every part down to the bolts in this "Bible" for Camaro's as I call it. I hope you find one. I suggest looking for it on google.

I am so jealous! That is my dream car! I doubt you will find any stock parts. You can get upholstery that can help changing the interior colors. Just rebuild the engine to keep the value of the car.

It would be difficult to find all the stock items that you may need to change your car. However, you can check out from upholstery or car part stores, in case they can help you in accessing the materials you need.

What size motor? Is it a 2 or 4 bbl carb? For the interior they have spray paint that works on vinyl. What about the tranny and the rear end?
