2002 FORD THUNDERBIRD
The Ford Thunderbird is a rear wheel drive automobile which was
manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model
generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a
market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury
In 2002-2005, production of the Thunderbird ran again, returning to
the original formula for the Thunderbird, the latest version had a
two-seat coupe/convertible layout like the first-generation
Thunderbird and retro-futuristic styling to match.
The Thunderbird Blue with a two-tone interior 2002 Ford Thunderbird
we have at Skyway Classics was the first year made of these
classics. The eleventh generation Thunderbird was built at Ford's
Wixom Assembly Plant and was based on the company's DEW98 platform,
which was shared with the Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type.
Engine & Drivetrain
The sole engine of the Thunderbird was a Jaguar-designed AJ-30 3.9
L DOHC V8, a short-stroke variant of the Jaguar AJ-26 4.0 L V8,
making 252 horsepower and 267 lb�ft of torque. The engine was mated
to Ford's 5R55N 5-speed automatic transmission.
Ours has all the factory parts including the Thunderbird V8 logo
air cleaner assembly and sits in a very clean and detailed engine
compartment and looks as new.
Power gets to the ground on chrome Ford Factory Mag Wheels and
performance black sidewall tires as the exhaust makes a great sound
as it exits out the rear thru duals and dual tips.
Though the Thunderbird's exterior styling was unique relative to
its platform mates, the instrument panel, steering wheel and other
trim pieces are borrowed from Lincoln LS.
It has a great retro Thunderbird Blue/black interior twin high-back
bucket sear interior package with matching door panels and console,
shift knob, a full dash with the factory gauges, and
steering-wheel, with all power options and an automatic
The interior has high-quality materials, thoughtful color accents,
retro-look gauge cluster, real aluminum trim, not aluma-look
plastic. The steering column, instrumentation, and center stack are
even borrowed from the LS Lincoln.
Our T-Bird looks great with the factory Thunderbird Blue paint job
over the body including the fenders and with its black convertible
top, but it even has a Thunderbird Blue painted hardtop to put on
when you need it. You will love the look of the porthole top as it
does remind you of the 50's TBirds.
The low hood scoop and long sweeps of the fenders make for lovely
scenery out the chrome-ringed and radically curved windshield.
The 2002 Ford Thunderbird we have here at Adventure Classics looks
so good, from the chrome "Thunderbird" script to the rear tail
lights, the Thunderbird looks dramatic.
Its appeal is as a stylish boulevard cruiser. This is the coolest
ride Ford has created since the original Mustang.
