3.9 DOHC V8
Black and Red
Low mileage, exceptional care, and absolute style come together on this 2002 Ford Thunderbird. So when you can get such a nice example of a loaded instant classic at such a nice price, then you know this is a special deal.
How do you average less than 1,300 miles per year? You buy a car that you only use for special occasions. So we bet someone knew that 2002 was a special year. After all, this is the first year the Thunderbird returned to the streets sporting the new retro-cool style. Even the Torch Red paint is borrowed from the original \'55 T-bird. And the way this factory-applied color radiates in the sunshine lets you know this has always been treated as a collector car. Ford really knew how to make a car that we\'d love from day one. The chrome grille, hood scoop, bright wheels, and fender vents are all part of the iconic experience. This one even has the optional removable hardtop with porthole windows. So this is an example of rolling nostalgia that has been cared for just as you would have done if you purchased it new.
While we love the hardtop, this one is really meant to be open to the world. That\'s why the interior is so well coordinated with the exterior. So the center console, door panels, dash, shift knob, and steering wheel all have a cool inserts to match the red exterior. Even the leather bucket seats are part of this color theme, and you can see it so well because low mileage means little seat time. This is a terrific cruiser because the retro style has a ton of modern equipment underneath. You get a power driver seat, power locks, power steering, keyless entry, and cruise control. Plus, the radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD/XM/DVD head unit that includes Bluetooth and a remote. Owning a modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. One of your favorite experiences will include the power convertible top and power windows. After all, that means you never have to leave the driver\'s seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Plus, dual-zone automatic climate control keeps both you and you passenger feeling individually comfortable.
Ford\'s 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 on a car so nicely presented so far, 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 V8 was designed to have low-end power to be great in traffic, and it also has plenty left in the reserve to keep you effortlessly cruising on the highway. This is also why it\'s mated to a five-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. This is a personal luxury car like its ancestors, but it comes with more modern driving features. The fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Michelin tires means you can be confident on any road.
The sale comes with the original warranty card, owner\'s manual, and even a stand for the hardtop. So now\'s your chance at a car that offers comfort and collectability all for quite an obtainable price. Call now!
