The iconic Ford Thunderbird has earned its place in automotive history. Elegant and refined, yet sporty, the Thunderbird was always a car of distinction. As America’s first personal luxury car, it defined a whole market class, and was Ford’s premier offering for over four decades.
This gorgeous 2003 Thunderbird convertible is finished in Evening Black. Its finish has a beautiful luster that is further accentuated by its 17” chrome wheels and bright dual exhaust tips. Its power retractable Black cloth convertible top and optional soft boot are like new. You’ll also appreciate this car’s optional matching removable hardtop, which features its signature chrome-rimmed porthole window. A storage rack for the hardtop will also be included with sale.
Distinctiveness is not relegated to this Thunderbird’s exterior. The interior is equally pleasing, and features premium leather seating areas finished in Black with Torch Red accents applied to the seat inserts, gear shift knob, and top of steering wheel—all a part of its optional partial interior color accent package. Comfort and convenience features include the following:
· Power windows & door locks
· Power tilt/telescoping steering column
· Heated power 6-way driver’s seat & 2-way passenger seat
· Dual power sideview mirrors
· Remote trunk release
· Automatic headlamps with on/off delay
· Rear window defroster
· Delayed accessory power shutoff
· Dual visor vanity mirrors
· Leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio & speed controls
· Remote keyless entry system
· AM/FM Audiophile Sound System with 6-disc in-dash CD changer
· Air conditioning with dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control
All power options work as they should, although the driver’s seat heater does not work in high, but does work in lower settings.
Under the hood you will find a 3.9 liter DOHC 32-valve aluminum V-8 engine which generates an impressive 280 horsepower and 286 lb.-ft. of torque, capable of spiriting you to 60 MPH in just 6.5 seconds. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Its 4-wheel disc anti-lock braking system, traction control, and speed sensitive power steering will keep you firmly in control at the helm. Best of all, this beauty has just 29,800 original miles!
This Thunderbird has been equipped with a K&N cold air intake and filter system which affords additional horsepower, but the original intake system will be included with sale, as will the original factory front license plate bracket, which has never been mounted. A clean Carfax report for this 2-owner car can also be provided upon request.
If a low mileage Thunderbird in a stunning color combination is what you desire, this 2003 Thunderbird is the one for you!
