This 2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible has one of the most timeless
color combos around. So to discover a loaded and well-preserved V8
T-bird like this is truly a terrific find. The affordable price is
just the cherry on top.
We don't see too many final generation Thunderbirds in Whisper
White. It looks especially elegant when the color-matched porthole
hardtop is in place, and the black folding roof has the appeal of a
white coat tuxedo. So you can't go wrong any way you choose to
motor in this modern classic. These T-birds were out to have a
retro car kind of appeal, and so they look good with brightwork.
Ford did it in places like the grille, dual exhaust tips, and
17-inch polished alloys. You see the full package so well because
this is a well-respected example that has averaged far fewer miles
than its contemporaries that are about to cross into their second
decade. So what you're looking at here is a retro car that's
preparing for proper classic status. And that means a vintage
vehicle that also has all the best features.
The combination of black and white is so timelessly alluring that
we know you're going to love driving this one with the top down.
The low mileage and level of care are reflected in the quality
presentation of this interior. So you can drive and arrive with
pride. And this one is certainly meant to be enjoyed. That's why
you have a luxury level of features, like leather upholstery, a
power driver's seat, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry/alarm, dual airbags, side airbags, a power convertible top,
cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering column, and a premium
AM/FM stereo with in-dash six-disc CD changer. Plus, there's
dual-zone automatic A/C climate control to keep you feeling cool
even when the top is down.
The 3.9-liter V8 was a development between Jaguar and Ford. So it
has a well-done engineering background mixed with a sporty feeling.
This is the numbers-matching motor in the ultra-clean engine bay,
but it does have a little secret. It pays tribute to the V8's
sporting history with a muffler delete. Now the motor makes a great
tune that's not as brash as a muscle car but really gives you an
added throaty tone missing from others. This fuel-injected 32-valve
DOHC setup makes for a motor that's good in all conditions. 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, power steering, and four-wheel
power disc brakes, this may look like a first-gen Thunderbird, but
it handles like a proper modern luxury cruiser.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the first year for the
final-gen T-bird, and this one has a classic look with a true
classic V8 sound. So if you want a well-preserved modern classic
that loves to stand out, call today!
