For sale in our Chicago showroom is this 1-owner 2002 Ford Thunderbird. Powering this beautiful rendition of a classic is a 3.9l V8 producing just over 250 horsepower, making for a very sporty cruiser. The smooth automatic transmission will let you enjoy the scenery without worrying about handling gear selection. With just over 24,000 actual miles, this dual-overhead cam engine has more than enough life left in it. The sole-owner of this vehicle has taken fantastic care of it by making sure it is always out of the elements, keeping up with service, and keeping the mileage to a minimum. The sporty red paint is sure to catch your attention, and the black and red two-tone leather interior will make you fall in love. The plush seats are more than comfortable, and the sound system is crisp and clear. Having both a hard top and a soft top certainly has its benefits. If you get caught in the rain, throw up the soft top and make your way home while staying dry. Plan on taking a longer drive? Throw the hard top on and avoid the buffeting of a convertible top on the highway. Such a clean, well cared for modern classic is hard to come by and is sure to appreciate in value. Options include: Air-Conditioning, AM/FM/CD, Automatic Convertible Top, Removable Hard Top, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Anti-Lock Brakes, Telescopic Wheel, Traction Control, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Drivers Airbag, Passengers Airbag, Leather Interior, Radial Tires, and Alloy Wheels.

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
The Ford Thunderbird has gone through many iterations during its design and market focus.
After a visit to Europe in the early 1950s, Henry Ford II decided he wanted to build a two-seat, convertible sports car for the American public.
After Ford reinvented the Thunderbird as a four-seat luxury car for 1958, some still pined for the trim, exclusive, two-seat sports car that Thunderbird was when introduced in 1955.
