There was no better way to make the personal luxury statement in 1976 than with the Ford Thunderbird. This was the last of the large boulevard cruisers, and today this is celebrated with an exceptionally preserved example. So look over all the details - from the original 460 V8 to the luxurious A/C interior - and soon you'll understand why this is one of the best values in survivor classics going.
This was the last year for the sixth-generation T-Bird. The next year these would be smaller car, and that just seems to go against the personal American luxury car feel that the Thunderbird has always represented. That makes this a very significant vehicle, and why this would be cared for so correctly. This is believed to be the original application of the Silver Starfire paint, and it looks absolutely fantastic today for spending four-decades on this earth. The high gloss really shows off how well the sheetmetal still holds its unbroken angular creases. Then again, with a coupe that's averaged 680 miles annually, it has been babied like a good luxury classic should. You see this carefully preserved history in the shine of the bumpers, straightness of the trim, and how everything is complete - right down to the hood ornament. The true elegance is also shown in the factory burgundy pinstripe that coordinates with the taut vinyl roof.
The exterior burgundy accents are also a nice preview of the interior, so this was a well-coordinated classic direct from the factory. Just like the outside, the inside of this T-bird is excellently preserved. The carpets, door panels, and headliner are all in a rich red wine color. And the leather seats have a fantastic button-top presentation. No matter how many family and friends are in this classic, everyone will truly feel luxurious thanks to features like power windows and air conditioning that has been upgraded to modern R134a for easy servicing. But the best treats are reserved just for you. The driver's seat is power adjustable, and the dash is oriented to the driver in this personal luxury cruiser. So you have easy access to everything from the factory AM/FM radio to the fingertip cruise control buttons.
With a car that's been so original so far, you'll be quite happy to see the numbers-matching 460 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. This is truly survivor grade as the low-mileage motor still has the factory decals. And when it looks this good so many decades later, then you know it has received proper service its whole lifetime. But just because this is a time capsule, doesn't mean you should hesitate adding miles to the odometer. The motor is strong and smooth like a classic luxury car should be. Plus, features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes make this T-bird is the perfect any time cruiser.
Complete with owner's manual, it's amazing you can get this kind of standout vintage cruiser for such an affordable price. That's why we know it will be gone quickly. Call today!!!
