This beautiful car is an eleventh generation of Thunderbirds. Also, what would be accurately dubbed as the retro reincarnation of the of the 50's T-bird. It has taken cues from the classic T-bird for sure. Generating such accolades, it was up for nomination for The Motor Trend Car of the Year. With only 40,000 produced this year in total. This is one of 8300 made in this color code. It's almost like driving one of the older ones with all the modern conveniences. This car looks fantastic as one would expect. Specially ordered and kept out of the elements by its ONLY owner. Everything is original and it should be considering it only has 19,577 actual miles on it. The only subtitle touch that the owner put on this goes unnoticeable that is until you start it, Upgraded Magnaflo exhaust that makes this sound perfect! From the factory, these came loaded but this one does have a couple upgrades that were available upon order. One being the hardtop. Have you always wanted a convertible but wished it wasn't so loud when you had the top up? Well with this car optioned as it is you have the original Hard top as well as the soft top. The other one being this exquisite interior leather and color option. Here is a list of the creature comforts you'll enjoy with this modern T-bird. When given the choice who wouldn't want AC? Also has AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Power Convertible Top, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power steering, Power Locks, Power Windows, Power seats, Anti-Lock Brakes, Telescopic and Tilt Wheel, Keyless Entry, Driver and front Passenger Air Bags, Anti-Theft System, Leather Interior, Radial Tires and Alloy Wheels.
