For Sale at Auction: 2002 Ford Thunderbird in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 2002 Ford Thunderbird Saleen Bonspeed Edition was created as a Ford prototype and is the only one in existence. When the new Ford Thunderbird was released, Bonspeed Speed and Design Studio in Anaheim, CA, was asked by Ford to build a concept car for their booth. While it was still in clay at the Bonspeed studio, Steve Saleen saw the car and realized it was a perfect design for a Saleen Thunderbird. Then Bonspeed and Saleen struck a deal to build the car as a production vehicle. When Ford announced that it was limiting the production run of the Thunderbird, the project was canceled. This is the only complete prototype ever built. The car features a custom nose, rear bumper, side rocker panels, rear wings, custom scoop and hard tonneau covers. It sits on air-ride suspension and specially designed Bonspeed 19-inch forged wheels. The custom leather interior has RECARO seats and an incredible Sony sound system with hard drive. This historic award-winning prototype has been featured in magazines from Super Rod to Road and Track. To elevate the prototype to the complete and accurate example as Saleen and Bonspeed intended, the owner commissioned Dominator Street Rods to go through the car from top to bottom and restore it to a perfect example of what Ford originally intended as a performance Thunderbird. It had just over 20,000 actual miles put on it while it was campaigned and used by both Ford and Saleen, and the new owner put on an additional 483 actual miles since its complete restoration. The original 3.9-liter V8 engine was swapped out to a 4.6-liter, 3-valve Ford Racing crate engine. It produces 350hp and has 330 ft/lbs of torque. It has an upgraded 4-speed automatic transmission and many other upgraded options and features. Painted in a stunning special Saleen Silver color, this rare one-of-one is a magnificent piece of Ford automotive history. It comes with a complete color illustrated brochure and photos of the work that Dominator Street Rods completed.
