For Sale: 1979 Ford Thunderbird in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Draped in Dove Gray, this 1979 Ford Thunderbird stands as a graceful rendition of classic American luxury. The body is crowned with a vinyl roof that matches the car's pinstriping and the subtle yet sophisticated two-tone theme carried through the lower panels. Red accents blend seamlessly into the ensemble, adding a touch of elegance without overwhelming the senses. The vehicle rolls on 15-inch wheels encased in 225/75R15 tires, grounding it firmly in its era yet speaking to its enduring appeal. Notably, the hideaway headlights and clean lines of the bodywork suggest a design that favors subtlety over flash, making this Thunderbird a reserved yet memorable sight.

Inside, a red vinyl bench seat welcomes occupants, complementing the exterior's red accents. The interior, preserved in great condition, features a straightforward layout with the shifter on the column and no center console, emphasizing spaciousness and comfort. The simplicity of the AM/FM radio, combined with air conditioning and power steering, ensures a driving experience focused on enjoyment and ease. The vinyl, known for its durability, promises to maintain its look and feel for years.

Under the hood, a 302 V8 engine provides the heartbeat, offering plenty of power and mated to a 3-speed automatic FMX transmission, a carburetor handles the fuel delivery, while power steering makes navigating a breeze. When it's time to slow down, power front disc brakes provide confident stopping power. The suspension, with coils and shocks at all four corners, strikes a perfect balance between comfort and control. And with just 41,925 miles on the clock, this bird has plenty of life left in it.
