Launched in 2002 at the height of the retro boom, the eleventh-generation Thunderbird heavily evoked the model's first variant with vintage elegance. This 2002 Ford Thunderbird is finished in Thunderbird Blue with a matching removable hardtop and black convertible soft top over a black leather interior. It is powered by a 3.9L V8 and features a five-speed automatic transmission, 17″ chrome wheels, and power-adjustable seats. Thoroughly serviced and well documented, this Thunderbird is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Ohio showing approximately 10k miles on the odometer.
The eleventh-generation Thunderbird is heavily inspired by the first-generation model, and similarities can be seen in the egg-crate grille, chromed windshield surround, hood scoop, and round taillights. This Thunderbird is finished in Thunderbird Blue with a matching removable hardtop along with a black convertible soft top. Details include integrated fog lights, Thunderbird-script badges, a dual-outlet exhaust system, and chrome 17″ seven-spoke chrome wheels. The wheels are dressed in tires with 2002 date codes. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, the power-adjustable front bucket seats are upholstered in Midnight Black leather with Thunderbird logo embroidery. Black carpets line the floors while aluminum-look trim accents the dashboard and door panels. The premium Black Appearance package adds high-gloss black trim to the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter surround. Amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, an 8-speaker Audiophile sound system with an in-dash six-CD changer, and more. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
Power comes from a Jaguar-designed AJ-30 3.9L DOHC V8 engine driving the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel independent suspension and power-assisted 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes are standard. The seller notes that service in June 2022 included the replacement of front sway bar links, rear sway bar links, and replacement of all dry-rotted bushings. Additionally, a new battery was installed in April 2023.
This sale will include a clean title.
