For Sale: 2003 Ford Thunderbird in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

Ford knows all about retro-modern appeal with the Mustang. In 2002, they released the Thunderbird, which obviously pays homage to the original 2-seater "Baby Birds" of the '50's. This fact alone makes the car worthy of your attention, but what's underneath? Well, there's plenty of good news here. First of all the platform, the engine, and the transmission all come from the Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-type sedans. Okay, so there's some upscale roots. The 3.9 liter V8 is smooth and quiet, but when pushed emits a pleasing snarl and some aggressive acceleration. The 2003 kept the essential styling, but was infused with an extra 28 horsepower to bring the total up to a very healthy 280. A horsepower increase is the best update! The car is engineered for sure-footed handling with a four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and a trunk mounted battery for better balance. Being a T-bird, you would expect plenty of goodies, and they're all here. Power everything including a neat tilt-away feature for the steering column, a nice sound system with CD changer, air conditioning, and power one-touch-down windows. This one has the new for '03 Premium Package which gives you heated and cooled leather seats. Cooled seats is a great feature on a convertible with black seats! Many drivers are rediscovering these modern Birds as a stylish way to get around. They offer looks, performance, and plenty of modern amenities. Ford called it "relaxed sportiness." Consumer Guide says, "As a near-luxury two-passenger V8 convertible, it's in a class by itself."
