Hello fellow Thunderbirder!

Since you are reading this you must be like me and share an interest in Ford’s most iconic model, the Thunderbird! You may like the classic version from ’55 or bought a ’66 Flairbird brand new. Perhaps you grew up with an ’83 Aerobird in the garage or are enjoying the classic lines and late model comfort with a 2005 Retrobird. Personally, I am a “bookend” Thunderbirder with ’57 and ’03 Thunderbirds. It doesn’t matter what year you like (or even if you own one!) you are part of the Thunderbird family and are welcome here.

Hey you guys,
I have a red 2003 Tbird convertible that I need to sell. I've had it since 2006 and I can't afford to keep the repairs going now. It is still running...only has 79,000 miles...I seldom drive. The biggest problem is that it needs a new top. The canvas has come away from the back window and I've got it taped over right now to keep the rain out. The back defroster still works, though...LOL.

It's never been in even the smallest accident. But I don't have a garage and it's been in the sun of Myrtle Beach all this time. The clear coat is peeling, and it needs a new paint job. Even with that, it's still beautiful after a wash. It also needs the switch that controls the heat and air. It's permanently on air conditioning, which works great. Not so good in the winter, obviously. This is causing electrical issues and the horn has gone out. Could be a fuse or something else...I don't know.

Lastly, it needs 2 cyclinder coils replaced. I have done 6 of them.

I only want $2800 for the car. The book value is $8000, so it is surely worth this much and can be fixed for less than the difference.

If you are interested, please either PM me and I'll give you my phone number. I'd love to get it gone by New Year's. I will try to post some pictures if I get any interest. This is what it looked like when I bought it.

Thanks for the add guys. I have a 1996 Tbird, 4.6l. Tonight heading home, the trans decided to give up. Barely wants to move itself. Have done some research but haven't gotten much good information. So, my question is, what other vehicles use the 4R70w that would drop right in the 96 Tbird that I would not have to swap speedo gears, electronics, etc? ... See MoreSee Less

1955 Ford Thunderbird Gasser style hotrod $25,000 - Horicon, WI Built originally in 1969 by a well known speed shop just outside NYC (I am trying to validate this claim by the previous owner). First off this car is a true hot Rod. The engine is a 496 cu- inch big block Chevrolet backed by a built 700R4 with a 3,000 RPM lock-up converter. The rear is a Ford 9" posi with a locker, and 3.90 gears. The car has disc brakes up front and drums in the rear. The front rims are 15" X 4" team 3 and the rear rims are 15" X 8.5" american racing with drag radial. The rear wheel wells are flared and gives it a unique look. The car has line lock, MSD ignition, electric fan and trans cooler. It has new fuel pump, fuel lines, aluminum heads, 8 quart oil pan. All new electric throughout the car. Everything works, all lights, directionals, gauges, interior with LED lights. The oversized aluminum radiator lets the car run at 180 degrees. Oil pressure is 60 lbs. Their is a small tear on the original seat where you get in over the years. The paint is in great condition but with minor spider cracking in a few spots. There is ABSOLUTELY no rust underneath or on the car. All glass is in excellent condition. The car was always stored indoors. This is a true iconic Hot Rod. You can view the car on YouTube (55 T Bird at Island Drag way). There is no T Bird like this around. Not looking for trades. Pontiac sign is not for sale.
