As gas prices steadily increased in the late 1970s and 1980s and more capable foreign sports cars with smaller displacement engines began to make their way into the states, the Big 3 (Ford, GM, and Chrysler) needed to change up their approach to the sports car market. Each began experimenting with with smaller engines with added forced induction to make up for loss of displacement to compete with lighter weight and more efficient foreign models. Fords answer to this problem was their turbocharged 2.3 liter inline-4 engine that eventually made their way into the top-of-the-line Mustangs and Thunderbirds of the 1980s. This 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe is an excellent, collector grade example of these great turbocharged sports cars with only 7,800 actual miles. As many of these great sports cars were driven and thoroughly enjoyed when they were new, finding pristine and low mile examples of these cars is getting more and more difficult. This Thunderbird Turbo Coupe presents in overall near mint condition finished in its gorgeous, factory Bright Red Metallic paint that is complimented by its factory wheels wrapped in Pirelli P4000 tires. The Turbo Coupe Thunderbirds received a number of unique exterior touches including their grill-less front fascia, functioning dual air inlet hood and Turbo Coupe emblems and trim. This Thunderbirds factory original Charcoal cloth interior is in near mint condition, as well. Powering this beautiful Thunderbird is its turbocharged and fuel-injected 2.3 liter inline 4 engine backed by its T5 5-speed manual transmission.
