For Sale: 2002 Ford Thunderbird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Black cars are often the best collectibles. First-year models and special editions are also highly prized. So what if you can find all that and more? This 2002 Ford Thunderbird Neiman Marcus Edition is a low-mileage and loaded two-owner example that has been treated as a proper rare collectible since day one.

Neiman Marcus loves to offer premium fantasy, and occasionally they'll even have their own special edition car as part of the Christmas catalog. They offered 200 examples of the 11th generation Thunderbird at the end of 2000 - before the car was in dealerships. Without an example on hand, this was rumored to sell out within a matter of hours. So if you weren't one of the few who were quick on the button, this is the next best thing. After all, averaging less than 1,700 miles annually means this one only came out of the garage for special occasions. The car has been kept in a very well preserved state, and so that means the panels and paint look excellent right now. It doesn't have the scratches of being washed every weekend, and collectors know that's the kind of advantage where it looks impressive today, and it still gives you the option of unlocking a concours-level finish with a professional detail. All that piano-like black draws even more attention to the brightwork. There's a bold shine on the classic-style grille, hood scoop, and trim. The 21-spoke wheels also add to the brightness and are part of the exclusive Neiman Marcus package. And while the black folding roof looks terrific, for that added degree of sophistication, this one also comes with a special sliver hardtop featuring the iconic porthole windows.

The exclusive black and silver look of the exterior is also a preview of the special edition's interior color theme. And not only is the color theme exclusive, but also the subtle Neiman Marcus badge on the dash is there to remind T-bird fans how special this one is. It's a well-done driver's setup where the retro-cool gauges are met with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with all the essential controls at your fingertips. Your leather bucket seat even power adjusts to the ideal position. This comes loaded with everything you could want, including a power soft top, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power steering, cruise control, and an AM/FM CD changer stereo. A modern classic also means modern safety with dual front airbags and side airbags. For those times you do decide to add to the low odometer, this one is ready for top-down motoring with dual-zone climate control. That way you and your passenger get to dial-in the ideal individual temperature to stay comfortable.

Ford's modern and smooth 3.9-liter DOHC V8 was the choice for the Lincolns and Jaguars of the era, and so it was the perfect choice to also find a home in the T-bird. You can see from the fresh presentation that this was properly cared for and maintained. That means you get to fully enjoy the benefits of a fuel-injected V8 that has the perfect powerband to be a strong stoplight puller or an all-day highway cruiser. This versatility is only heightened by the five-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. This Thunderbird is a personal luxury car like its ancestors, but it comes with more modern driving features. The fully-independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS make this a highly capable cruiser.

This is a true collectible that has been treated with true respect from day one. It even comes with the original window sticker. So if you know how special and rare this T-bird is, then you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
