2002 Ford Thunderbird Roadster For consignment, a first year retro, low mileage, (28,086), fully equipped car. This car presents in very nice condition with the usual minor blemishes one would expect on a car from 2002 with 28K miles on it. A hardtop and soft top version, so you can drive it and have fun year-round and a hardtop folding stand/cart and a boot cover for when the top is down. Complete with its original window sticker, various brochures, and a rarely seen Thunderbird hard case book. Add in a new fuel pump in May of 2023 and you have a snappy yellow mink coat for father in modern form! Exterior Inspiration Yellow loudly announces its presence and shouts out it is in very nice condition with straight steel, and well minded gaps. A black canvas power convertible top, in very good condition, raises and lowers quickly and effortlessly with only minor staining of the canvas. If you want more protection, put on the available hard top, complete with the harken back to the 50s porthole window, and lightly smoked glass on either side and brave the elements. This hard top is also Inspiration Yellow... see fields of sunflowers. Retro styling cues are seen throughout in the chrome Ferrari inspired egg crate grille, fog lights that simulate a flattened version of the Dagmars of yore, a simple hood scoop and those sexy rocket engine style tail lights. Chrome cast aluminum wheels are noted on all 4 corners and are wrapped in newer black wall 17 tires. Interior The dual bucket interior in black and Inspiration Yellow leather wraps numerous surfaces, with only the buckets showing slight age wrinkling on the smooth bolsters. No errors here on the carpet, headliner of the hardtop, or dash surfaces. White faced gauges with black numbers and indicators are embedded into the curvaceous dash and are fronted by an original steering wheel. These surrounding surfaces are also using the black and yellow motion colors. This includes the snappy center console presenting with a black top and yellow sides. Dual temp zones, an AM/FM/6 CD stereo, power seats, power locks, and power windows, along with a tilt and extending memory steering wheel column are some of the options on this highly appointed car. Even the door panels get into the retro action with a mix of smooth black plastic, ribbed black vinyl and a yellow vinyl insert all looking good. Drivetrain A 3.9 Liter dual overhead cam V8 sits within a clean engine bay making an impressive 252 horsepower, oh should I say wingpower. This is attached to a 5R55N 5-speed automatic transmission that shifts quietly and smoothly. A 3.58 conventional rear axle is on the back. Nary even dust on this clean engine and bay. Undercarriage Clean rust free and structurally sound no problems here. We can note 4-wheel independent Macpherson strut suspension, 4-wheel power disc brakes with ABS, and dual exhaust with what appear to be the original mufflers. The only flaws that appear are some splashed road dirt and a few scrapes on the black X-bracing, otherwise its miles of rust-free yellow sprayed floor pan steel and some added corrosion free aluminum lightweight parts. Drivability A quick starting procedure and on the test track this car performs beautifully. Only 1 issue crept up on my drive which was the AC blowing warm. The compressor was working so it may be due to a faulty blend door motor. A true pleasure to drive and gives an overall feeling much like its predecessors. A first-year reintroduction Bird with some nifty chrome wheels, low miles, in Inspiration Yellow, with a hardtop attachment, and a soft top. Talk about fun all year round. Yours for the taking, and you better act fast since Ive always carried a torch for these retro rides. 1FAHP60A62Y112841 1-USA F-Ford Motor Company A-Passenger Car H-Active Belts, Front & Side Airbags P-Ford 60-Thunderbird A-3.9L DOHC V8 6-Check Digit 2-2002 Y-Wixom, Mi Assy Plant 112841-Sequential Unit Number Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
