1978 Ford Thunderbird
Coupe Car for sale in Henderson, Nevada 89015
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Classic Car Overview
1978 Ford Thunderbird $12,500
1978 Ford Thunderbird in Russet Red.
22,500 original miles. Original paint, interior and drive train. I got this car four years ago with 12,500 original milescame with original Michelins, belts, hoses, etc. Spectacular condition, runs perfectly, drives as new, meticulously maintained...
I changed a few maintenance items for preventive reasons, such as front rotors and pads, new radiator, new AC compressor, new belts and hoses (but kept the originals), new muffler, new battery, new tires, shocks and rear springs, rebuilt carb and alternator, new cat converters and fuel tank.. Paint is 9.5 out of ten (has small scratch by gas filler door), interior a ten, zero rust, original spare tire, NO engine or transmission oil leaksengine compartment detailed, undercarriage very clean.frequent car show winner. In four years I put nearly 10K on it taking it to car shows and cruise-insgreat highway car, tight, solid and striking. Absolutely everything works including the clock. Heck, the silver paint trim on the tail light lenses isnt even worn. The chrome is excellent. Vinyl top is perfect, upholstery is as new, dash top is perfect. It has a reclining passenger seat! Comes with a quality car cover.
The car is equipped with factory AC that works perfectly, AM/FM stereo radio, dealer installed cruise control, PS, PB, rear window defogger, interior dor group and came with the stock wheel covers which I replaced with the optional (NOS) wire wheel covers I kept the originals which are perfect. The engine is a 302 CI V8 with a 2bbl carb. It passed emissions in California when I got it with no problem and now is exempt in Nevada from emissions testing because it is registered as a classic car.
This car was built at the Chicago plant and purchased from a dealer in Parma, Ohio by the original owner. It was in a private collection, rarely driven, never saw rain or snow and lived in a climate controlled garage with siblings until the owner passed. It lives with me in Las Vegas, Nevada. It has a clear California title in my name. The MARTI report shows details of the build. It even has the starting instructions still on the sun visor.
This car is as close to showroom as you can get and I challenge you to find another low mileage original as nice as this. It needs absolutely NOTHING except a caring owner who will keep it as nice as it is. You can buy one for 8 or 10K and put another 5K in it to be nice and it still wont be as nice as this. The car was recently completely and professionally detailed.
The photo of the car at the airport in Palm Springs shows it featured in the movie Do It or Die...seethe links...
