1979 Ford Thunderbird
Coupe Car for sale by Lafontaine Classic Cars in Milford, Michigan 48381
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
"The platform was taken from the Ford Torino which also made the design of the car sharper and lower, a fact which turned out to be popular with the customers as sales rose quickly."
1979 Was the final year for this body style, although there were a few cosmetic changes for this model year . The 1979 models received a bolder front grille in a large 4x4 grid pattern with a new spoiler located below the front bumper. The clear fender tip parking lamps were positioned directly ahead of amber marker lenses. The full width tail lamps were replaced with large rectangular tail lights located on either side of a single backup lamp. Emissions concerns a quest for greater fuel economy lead to a redesign in 1980.
This Thunderbird features a 302 CID carbureted V8, an automatic 3 speed transmission, rear wheel drive, ventilated disc brakes up front and drums in the rear.
