2002 Ford Thunderbird Roadster
2002 Ford Thunderbird Roadster
Ford revived more than an American icon when it boldly resurrected its unique Thunderbird sports/personal car for 2002. It also, as events would have it, reprised an historic Motor Trend Car of the Year win. Our forefathers here named the '58 T-Bird-the first of the larger, four-seat versions-as Car of the Year, hailing "the overall concept...that combines safety with performance and comfort with compactness." For 2002, we're happy to bestow that honor again, recognizing today's Thunderbird for how it combines heritage with modernity and pleasure with practicality.
For consignment, a first year retro, low mileage, (39,308), fully equipped car. This car presents in very nice condition, with the usual blemishes one would expect on a car from 2002 with 39K miles on it. A hardtop and soft top version so you can drive it and have fun year-round and a hardtop cart and car cover for proper storage.
Evening Black quietly stands proudly and shouts out it is in very nice condition with straight steel, and well minded gaps. A power convertible, in very good condition raises and lowers quickly and effortlessly with only minor staining of the canvas. If you want more protection, put the available hard top complete with the harken back to the 50's porthole window, and tinted glass on either side. This hard top is also Evening Black…let me get my tuxedo. Chrome cast aluminum wheels are noted on all 4 corners and are wrapped in new blackwall 17" tires.
The dual bucket interior in black leather, wraps numerous surfaces, and appears like new. 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. Dual temp zones, an AM/FM/6 CD Stereo, power seats, power locks, and power windows, along with a power tilt and extending steering wheel column are some of the options on this highly appointed car.
A 3.9 Liter Dual Overhead Cam V8 sits within a clean engine bay. 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.
Clean rust free and structurally sound no problems here. We can note 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel power disc brakes with ABS, and dual exhaust with what appear to be the original mufflers. Our consignor states that the fuel pump and brakes were recently replaced.
A quick starting procedure and on the test track this car performs beautifully. No issues crept up on my drive and all functions performed swimmingly. A true pleasure to drive.
A first-year reintroduction Bird with some nifty chrome wheels, in Evening Black, with a hardtop attachment, and a soft top. Talk about fun all year round. Yours for the taking, and you better act fast since this matches my tuxedo so very well.
