There was no better way to make the personal luxury statement in
1979 than with the Ford Thunderbird. Today this is celebrated with
a one-owner coupe that survives in all the best ways: from the
paint, right down to the low-mileage. So take a deeper look at this
loaded V8 machine.
You're looking at the factory-applied Burnt Orange paint, and it
looks quite nice today for spending over four-decades on this
earth. There's even a hint of metallic glow. It's not perfect, but
that's exactly how you want it. After all, a survivor need to wear
its age with pride. And part of the reason for this looking so good
also has to do with how well the sheetmetal still holds its
unbroken angular creases. Then again, with a coupe that's averaged
less than 1,200 miles annually, it has been babied like a good
luxury classic should. The reason for such special care is because
these were a well-done premium presentation. You see that in the
thoughtful way the pinstriping, double vinyl roof, rub strips, and
wheels are all finished in a similar shade to give this a
well-coordinated almost two-tone effect. They even added trunk
straps like a classic touring car.
Inside is more of that exceptionally preserved feeling. And we know
you're going to love showing off that multi-tone cloth inserts in
the seats. They are a true '70s cool piece. Plus, the carpeting,
door panel, headliner, and dash are all well-preserved to deliver a
time capsule kind of feeling. And there's plenty of simulated
walnut wood as part of this premium presentation. Staying true to
the personal luxury feeling, there is an armrest center console, so
no matter how many people are along for the ride, the driver always
has individual comfort. The controls wrap around you with the
distinct five-pod setup. And below that you have controls for
everything from the AM/FM 8-track stereo, to the factory air
condition - all still working well in this time capsule.
With a car that's been so original so far, you'll be quite happy to
see a highly authentic engine bay. And since this looks correct,
right down to the decals, it's believe to be the original motor.
Ford's 351 cubic-inch V8 is a mighty engine, and this example fires
up with the kind of readiness you get from a well-respected
machine. But just because this is a low-mileage well-preserved
coupe doesn't mean you should hesitate adding to the odometer.
After all, with features like a three-speed automatic transmission,
cruise control, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front,
this T-bird is the perfect any time cruiser.
Because people want to know more about a survivor like this, it
even comes complete with the owner's manual and a copy of the
factory buildsheet. It's amazing you can get this kind of standout
vintage cruiser for such an affordable price. That's why we know it
will be gone quickly. Call today!!!
