Classic Car Overview

For consignment, we offer this nearly perfect, low mileage for the age, car that is from a good year of the Thunderbird design. In fact, in 1987/88 there was a complete redesign, and it was definitely all for the better. Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area. Exterior Looking like it was just dipped in Medium Red Metallic, this pristine exterior paint shows age appropriate wear and faults. The only chrome on this car are the badges, and they are shining brightly. This nicely executed fox bodied design has integrated headlights, all black trim, dual hood scoops, and a red stripe within the black body side moldings that works its way around the total circumference of the car mid doorline. A sunroof is noted as are tinted windows and snowflake polished aluminum wheels are seen on all 4 corners. This is a stunning 93,775 mile car exterior-wise and it is hard to find fault! Interior Deep Scarlet Red velour cloth covers the front power bucket seats, and rear bench seating complete with a cushy fold down armrest. One needs to look very closely to see any wear or faults in the cloth beyond the normal entrance and exit wear on the bolsters. The very same holds true for the carpeting which is flooding the floor and presents very red and very clean. A black console speeds up the center between the buckets and houses the power buttons and toggles for the drivers power seat, power windows, and mirrors as well as a stylized leather wrapped shifter. Moving forward and upward we note a System Sentry warning light panel, climate controls, and then the killer factory AM/FM/Cassette stereo with a factory equalizer. The gauge cluster, and ride controls, fuel saving mode, exterior lighting, and headlight sentinel sit behind an original very nicely preserved steering wheel. The headliner is nice and tight and shows near perfect as it surrounds the sunroof and the louvered sunroof shade which is intact, a rarity in and of itself. The door panels are near showroom, and house the power locks for the doors. Drivetrain Sitting proudly in the engine bay, and not to be outshined by the exterior and interior, a 2.3ci 4-cylinder EFI engine with intercooler a turbo, putting out a cool 150hp. A 5-speed manual Tremec T5 transmission is attached to the back, and works flawlessly sending power back to the Ford 8.8 rear axle weighing in with a 3.55 ratio and TracLoc capability. Undercarriage To sum it up in a word, Ill use original. Nary a hint of any rust or structural issues, and we can also note a 4-link suspension in the rear, and an independent coil spring front suspension. Power disc brakes are all around, and they are controlled by a Teves-2 antilock brake system. A single exhaust system splits to dual mufflers to create a melodious tune but we must note that the catalytic converter has been removed in favor of a straight pipe. Drive-Ability This car fired right up and floated like a butterfly to the test track where it stung like a bee. Plenty of power from the 2.3 liters, especially under boost, the 5-speed shifted easily and smoothly, and offered up a low RPM highway cruise. The interior was comfortable and roomy, and all functions were working just fabulously save for the AC blowing warm and a notable rattle in the exhaust system. Sitting in this car is like going back in time, and one can reminisce about the good old classic 80s in this very well kept, very nice, example of the 1987 Bird. Loaded with conveniences, mighty powerful and ready to compete with the European sport coupes and sedans of the day, this Fox chassis based bird is worth a look, just hang on tight once the boost comes in! 1FABP64W8HH224285 1FA-Ford Passenger Car USA B-Active Manual Belts P64-Thunderbird Turbo Coupe W-2.3L 140 CUI I4 Intercooled Turbo 8-Check Digit H-1987 H-Lorain, OH Assy Plant 224285-Sequential Unit Number DOOR STICKER PNT 26-Medium Red Metallic DSO 42- Cleveland, OH BDY 63D-Thunderbird Turbo Coupe TRIM BD-Scarlet Red Articulated Cloth Seats R H-AM/FM Stereo Cassette S 8-Power Moonroof AX K-8.8 3.55 Traclock TRANS 2TTKK-T5 5-Speed Manual
