This 2002 Ford Thunderbird was bought to be a classic from day one. With only 34,558 miles on the odometer, smooth V8, loaded A/C interior, removable hardtop, and beautifully original presentation, this is a cherished collector car waiting for its next caretaker.
This Thunderbird is very much like buying it brand new, which makes this retro-styled collectable irresistibly appealing. The bold Torch Red is borrowed from the original '55 T-Bird palette, but it has the luster of a modern clearcoat. And the way the car has been babied, you better believe that this factory paint is so nice it will make your garage feel like the Ford showroom. But we love these because all the details are right, too, including the grille, hood scoop, fender vents, and the porthole on the optional removable hardtop. Everything is exactly how the factory made it, so the doors fit tight and the bright alloy wheels have never seen a curb. This truly is a rare opportunity to own a full surviving future classic.
The interior is every bit as flashy as the '50s styling, but now you get a whole lot more modern features and comfort. It starts with the black and red sports bucket seats. We don't believe this car has gone around with its top down much, so when you decide to do so, the red leather is still so vibrant that it matches the exterior for that highly stylized appearance. The driver gets a modern take on the Thunderbird logo on the steering wheel, and beyond that are white-faced gauges that also carry a cool retro style. This comes loaded with everything you could want, including a premium AM/FM/CD stereo, power seats, power windows, power locks, power steering, alarm system, and cruise control. Owing a modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side air bags, and anti-lock brakes. If you do happen to take this out for a sunny-day cruise, there's the power folding soft top to keep everything secure when you need it. Plus, the dual zone climate control means you and your passenger get to have the perfect temperature to stay cool while looking cool in your T-Bird.
Ford's reliable and smooth 3.9-liter DOHC V8 was the choice for the Lincolns and Jaguars of the time, and so it was the perfect powerplant for this T-Birds. As expected with a car that has averaged less than 2,500 miles annually, this is the original motor and it has been well maintained. But if you do decide to take this low mileage collectable out on the road, you will be rewarded. The fuel-injected V8 was designed with low-end power that's great in traffic, and it also has plenty left in the reserve to keep you effortlessly cruising on the highway. This versatility is only heightened by the five-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. It's a personal luxury car like its ancestors, but it comes with more modern driving features. The fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and Continental touring tires means you can be confident on any road.
Complete with owner's manual, you could try to search for a Thunderbird that's more factory fresh than this one, but by the time you realize this is the best of everything, it might already be gone. Call today!!!
