Thunderbird 2002

Title Status --
Exterior Color Yellow
Interior Color Black


The retro good looks of this 2002 Ford Thunderbird are only the tip of the iceberg. With the single-year color, matched hardtop, loaded A/C interior, and smooth V8 power, it's an all-around awesome cruiser offered at a very affordable price.

This is an exceptionally desirable year to own a Thunderbird. 2002 was the rebirth of the legendary nameplate in this cool retro style. Plus, the Inspiration Yellow paint was a one-year-only option. It's believed that the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, and that means a car that has averaged less than 4,400 miles annually. So as this one crosses into its second decade (and gets closer to full classic car benefits,) it's good to find one of this caliber. After all, it has been driven, but you'll see a level of respect and care that's far above commuter status. And that's the point of this T-Bird. Ford delivered the iconic style we love, but in a package that was everyday usable. You'll love that all the details are right, too, including the grille, hood scoop, fender vents, and alloy wheels. And of course, there's the porthole on the iconic removable hardtop.

Just like the original T-Bird, the interior does a fantastic job of coordinating with the exterior. That's because this car is meant to be seen with the top down. So the center console, door panels, dash, shift knob, and steering wheel all have cool inserts to match the special yellow exterior. Even the leather bucket seats are part of this color theme. It was one of the few options Ford offered with these loaded Thunderbirds, and it's something we know to look for today. 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 loaded with everything you could want, including a premium AM/FM/CD stereo, power driver's seat, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, and cruise control. Owning a modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. If you do happen to take this out for a sunny-day cruise, there's the power-folding soft top to keep everything secure when you need it. Plus, the dual-zone automatic A/C climate control means you and your passenger get to have the ideal individual temperature to stay cool while looking cool in your T-Bird.

Ford's 3.9-liter DOHC V8 was the choice for the Lincolns and Jaguars of the time, and so it was also ideal for the T-Birds. A modern fuel-injected V8 is great to have, especially when paired with the versatile five-speed automatic transmission w/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.

Complete with owner's manual, this is the first year of the final-gen T-bird. It's a great car for those who love driving something distinct, special, and effortless. So don't miss this deal. Call now!
