1971 Ford Thunderbird in Collectible Condition

If you’ve followed us on our Facebook page in the last week you would have seen a few very scenic photographs we took on our last road trip where we brought back a beautiful 1971 Ford Thunderbird Sport Back. And if you didn’t do not worry… I left them in the back of the gallery for you to enjoy.

Today the car is being offered for sale.

Exterior paint remains largely original. All the panels have the perfect gaps.The doors / hood / trunk open and close like a brand new car with a nice “thump”. The two original keys operate all locks as they should. Exterior trim is in excellent condition. Chrome has a very nice shine. Perfect glass all around. Undercarriage remains completely original without any welding, or collision history.A new set of 15×8 Magnum 500 rims with brand new BF Goodridge tires were fitted for a more aggressive look. The original steel wheels, hub caps are included with the sale.

Interior is completely original and is near immaculate. Dash, door panels, headliner, aluminum trim pieces, switches, gauges all perfect. Everything works including the factory electrical antenna, radio! Even the air conditioning system blows ice cold.

From the factory the car came with a 429 / 7.0 Litre V8 with a 4 barrel carburetor dubbed “The Thunderjet” which was rebuilt completely from top to bottom less than 7,000 miles ago. The car itself has only 67,000 original miles.1300 of those miles were added by us with zero issues. She doesn’t eat water, or drink any oil. The steering box is perfect, the suspension is tight and the brakes are as they should be. It drives brand new…!

Comes with clean title, original build sheet, operating manual, spare, original steel wheels, original hubcaps, jack.
