Two decades later, we know to appreciate the 2002 Ford Thunderbird. So we especially like finding one that has been treated with exceptional respect. It's a two-owner example with ultra-low mileage, excellent documentation, rare options, and a single-year color. So if you're looking for a modern collectible, this is the one.
Inspiration Yellow paint was a one-year-only option. Its purpose was to be a bright and distinct way to stand out in any crowd, and you know this by the way the factory finish continues to be smooth and vibrant. The reason why a car can continue to look like this is that it has averaged under 550 miles annually. Plus, it's a two-owner T-bird where they were friends. So this one sets the right tone for comprehensive care. This level of cleanliness and completeness means the details are correct, too, including the brilliant brightwork on the grille, hood scoop, fender vents, and porthole on this iconic removable hardtop. Everything is exactly how the factory made it, so the doors fit tight, and the Thunderbird logo looks crisp at the center of those polished alloys.
Just like the original T-Bird, the interior does a fantastic job of coordinating with the exterior. While these extensive Thunderbirds came loaded, one of the few options was a color-matched interior like this. The center console, door panels, dash, shift knob, and steering wheel all have cool inserts to match the unique yellow exterior. Even the leather bucket seats are part of this color theme. So while you have both the porthole hardtop and an electric folding soft top, this is especially the kind of cruiser that you're going to love showing with no roof at all. The driver gets a modern take on the Thunderbird logo on the steering wheel, and it's mounted on a tilt/telescopic column to give you a good view of the white-faced gauges. This comes with everything you want, including a premium AM/FM/CD stereo, power driver's seat, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, and cruise control. Plus, the dual-zone automatic A/C climate control means you and your passenger have the ideal individual temperature to stay cool while looking fabulous in your T-Bird. Owning a modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. If you take this out for a sunny-day cruise, there's the power-folding soft top to keep everything secure when needed.
You've seen a pristine presentation inside and out, and even the engine bay is particularly striking for its clean factory-fresh appearance. Ford's 3.9-liter DOHC V8 was the choice for the Lincolns and Jaguars of the time, so it was also ideal for the T-Birds. A modern fuel-injected V8 is excellent, especially when paired with the versatile five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. So you get that great classic Thunderbird look but in a package that drives like your best modern cars. You even have a fully independent suspension, traction control, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
The sale comes with the original window sticker, the owner's manual packet, and a hardtop stand. This is the first year of the final-gen T-bird, and it's finished with a level of distinction that you'd expect to pay thousands $$$$ more to obtain. So don't miss this deal. Call now!
