This 2002 Ford Thunderbird represents the re-debut of a legend. But
while the look is instantly classic, few were ever kept so well to
only have about 2,400 miles on the odometer (yes, really!!!) So
while you'll love the V8 power, loaded interior, iconic style, and
even a very cool tonneau cover accessory, what will really impress
you is the overall level of absolute preservation.
How do you average less than 135 miles per year? You buy a car that
you only use for very special occasions. This Thunderbird
represents the first year of the final generation, and it's the
closest you can come to brand new. So it's a true collector car
kept in museum-ready condition. The bold Torch Red is borrowed from
the original '55 T-Bird palette, but it has the luster of a modern
clearcoat. And the way this car has been babied, you better believe
that this factory paint is so nice it will make your garage feel
like the Ford showroom. We love the look of these because Ford got
all the details are right, too, including the grille, hood scoop,
fender vents, and the porthole on the optional removable hardtop.
Everything is exactly how the factory made it, so the doors fit
with precision and the bright alloy wheels have never seen a curb.
This truly is a rare opportunity to own a full surviving future
Black always looks terrific against the red. So not only do you
have a crisp black folding soft top, but also when you power it
down, it reveals a loaded full black interior. The dual bucket
seats have the kind of all-day comfort that uphold the T-bird's
grand touring natures. Of course, with mileage this low, there was
little time to even crease the supple leather. There are more great
luxury features, including power seats, power windows, power locks,
keyless entry/alarm, power steering, cruise control, dual airbags,
anti-lock brakes, and a premium AM/FM stereo with six-disc CD
changer. A car like this was really meant to be open to the world.
In fact, this one comes with an aftermarket hard tonneau cover
that's color-matched to give you the look of the rare and classic
Thunderbird Sports Roadster. And you really get to enjoy this
open-air feeling to the fullest, because dual-zone automatic A/C
climate control lets you and your passenger dial-in an individual
level of comfort.
The 3.9-liter motor was a development between Jaguar and Ford. So
it has a well-done engineering background mixed with a sporty
feeling. As expected with a car in this condition, the engine bay
remains looking like today is day one. But if you do decide to take
this ultra-low mileage collectable out on the road, you will be
rewarded. The fuel-injected 32-valve DOHC setup means a car that
starts eagerly, idles smoothly, and has power ready for you no
matter if you're at the stoplight or passing on the highway. The
five-speed automatic transmission is an ideal pairing that offers
nice gearing for acceleration and overdrive comfort. In fact, with
a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes,
this may look like a first-gen Thunderbird, but it handles like a
proper modern luxury cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet. You could
try to search for a Thunderbird that's more factory fresh than this
one, but by the time you realize this is the best of everything, it
might already be gone. Call today!!!
