Thunderbird 2005

Title Status --
Exterior Color Black
Interior Color Tan


The 2005 Ford Thunderbird was both the car's 50th anniversary and final production year. It represents the kind of bookend classic that made it a collectible from the moment it left Motown. This kind of pedigree only gets more desirable on a V8 cruiser with one of the best-coordinated color combos around.

It's almost assured this is the last of the Thunderbirds. Ford can never again match the level of classic details with the long boulevard proportions, a hint of sporty hood scoop, and the right touches of chrome that look so good against the piano-like back paint. The tan convertible top has a timeless elegance against the black, and the two-tone pinstripe does a nice job of making this a uniform package. This example has only averaged about 2,600 miles annually. That keeps it well out of daily commuter range, and you see that kind of quality in the fit and finish. That means a sleek style that looks great as the sunshine rolls over the retro-cool curves. But this wasn't meant to be a museum piece, and so you won't be afraid to take it out of the garage when the time is right. After all, there's something extra special about taking the top down on a warm summer night and letting the car pick your destination.

While the pinstripe matches the tan convertible top, there's a good reason why it's a two-tone, and that gets understood the moment you take the top down. This has the optional Light Sand interior package, and so you get more of the beautiful tan on the seats, steering wheel, gearshift, and carpet piping. And the other color of the pinstripe goes well with the touch of golden inserts on the doors and dash. It gives you an impressive level of color coordination, and that just seems like the right way to celebrate the T-bird's 50th anniversary. This one is not only desirable but also for its substance. It's loaded with a premium AM/FM/CD stereo, a power driver's seat, power convertible top, power windows, power locks, power steering, alarm system, dual front airbags, heated seats, cruise control, and dual-zone automatic A/C climate control. Just like the exterior, this one keeps the right mix of a stylish presentation that also doesn't want to be a display piece. So you happily sit down in the supple leather seat, grab the Thunderbird logo steering wheel, and watch the full gauge package dance as you hit the open road.

The 3.9-liter DOHC motor was the right choice for this Thunderbird. It upholds the tradition of V8-powered cars, and this was even shared with premium brands like Lincolns. This powerhouse shows all the right signs of proper care and originality, which just fits with the cherished driver feeling you get throughout the car. The V8 fires up with the ease you expect from a modern motor, and there's a smoothness out on the road that makes it a true personal cruiser. Add in the five-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and you can understand why this one is ideal for hitting the boulevard.

Complete with the owner's manual, this distinct final-year thunderbird has pedigree and rarity. So when it's also this affordable, you know it won't be with us long. Call today!!!
