2002 Thunderbird Roadster in “Thunderbird Blue” exterior and Thunderbird Blue interior leather accent. We bought this classic new off the Ford Dealer in 2002. It has been treated like a baby ever since. It has always been in our garage, it has never seen rain, snow or road salt and no accidents. It was only used for the occasional weekend “Joy Ride”. It still looks like it did when we bought it, both interior and exterior. The car comes with a 3.9L V8 engine with a 5 speed automatic transmission, 17” chrome wheels, power seats, power windows, power steering, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, removeable hard top coverts to a power convertible soft top with storage rack for hard top, and the full interior color accent package. Mint Condition. We still get “thumbs up” from passerby’s. We have the original sticker priced at $39,995.
Owned and driven for years by the iconic Hollywood star, the car could be bid multiple times higher than the auction’s estimate
Pick of the Day driven less than 80,000 miles since new
Car is being sold because owner lost its indoor storage spot
This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
