What is the adavantage? waht is the reason people cut up thunderbirds & mark 8's and make them shorter? Always wondered, and does the back seat become un-usable?
So how'd you manage to come to own the SWB001?SWB001 said:Actually, Kenny Brown did not do them. Doug at AutoKraft did all the work for Kenny Brown when Kenny Brown was still located in Omaha back in the early 90's. On my car, the back seat is actually usable as it is different than any produced since then. My car was shortened where the gas tank resides underneath the rear seat. So my car actually still has the foot well behind the front seats and a shortened bottom to the back seat. So the back seat is like a extened cab truck seat, but you still have the foot room. Now that is where mine is different as it was the first prototype to the project. They then learned that the fuel tank can no longer be used. So all the cars after mine were cut where the foot well is leaving no foot space, but able to have the factory fuel tank. I have a 16 gallon race cell in the back of mine. All five of the SWB t-birds were created in Doug's shop in Lincoln, NE.
