This one-owner 1988 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe is finished in Twilight Blue Clearcoat Metallic over a Raven Charcoal cloth interior and gets its power from a fully rebuilt turbocharged 2.3-liter I4. It is connected to a 5-speed manual transmission with a clutch that was replaced when the engine was rebuilt in September of 2020. The 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe was voted car of the year for 1988. It came standard equipped with a turbo charger, 4-wheel ABS (one of the first U.S. vehicles with this feature), Automatic ride control, a dash mounted switch to allow operation with regular or premium fuel and a boost gauge. Additional standard equipment includes power front bucket seats, A/C, FM/AM radio with cassette player, cruise control and power locks and mirrors. Located in Minnetonka, Minnesota, this Thunderbird Turbo Coupe is available now with receipts associated with its rebuilt engine and new clutch, a transferrable 3-year/30K-mile warranty covering the engine work, and a clear title. There are only 2,000 miles on the fully rebuilt engine and clutch and 2 years remaining on the warranty.
The vehicle is accident free and in excellent condition. It has always been winterized, blocked up and stored in the winters and has never been driven in the winter. In 2001 the vehicle was declared a total loss by the insurance company due to minor hail damage. The vehicle was totally repaired using no paint or bondo via “spoon” rubout repair and the vehicle was fully reinstated. There was no residual damage, as can be seen by the photos. In the spring of 2021, the hood and driver’s side quarter panel were repainted due to sun induced paint fading.
This vehicle is a great buy, fun to drive and looking for a good home.
