It's time to get your hands on a cool cruiser for quite an affordable price. This 1988 Ford Thunderbird is the perfect blend of technology, style, and power - all presented in a time capsule level of quality.

Thunderbirds have always been about the mature coupe for those who appreciate more, and this one showcases it the best. We like these ninth-generation cars because they returned these T-birds to an aerodynamic shape that ignited a design revolution at Ford. You can instantly tell by the level of gloss on the original Dark Cinnabar paint that this coupe has been treated with respect since day one. It has an amazing metallic shine that you'll appreciate every time you go for a sunny day cruise. But don't let just the paint steal your heart, because this one is great in the details. The pinstripe, bright trim, and all those iconic Thunderbird logs will make you fall in love, too.

Inside, this one perfectly blends personal luxury with cool '80s-style technology. And the way the cinnamon color of the interior matches the exterior pinstripe is exactly the kind of thoughtful touch that tells you Ford gave you your money's worth back then. If you're wondering why those buckets look like they have never seen any seat time, that's because this survivor-level vehicle has averaged less than 700 miles annually! So people have only been in the driver's seat for special occasions. Like a true luxurious T-bird this one has a long list of desirable features, like power seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a. And the digital speedometer is exactly how you want to showcase '80s premium performance.

On a coupe this original so far, it's great to lift the hood and see the numbers-matching motor. The 3.8-liter looks great surrounded by all the original components and decals, so you'll love taking this Thunderbird to survivor car shows. But more than just a time capsule, this coupe was made to drive. The V6 has plenty of power, and the four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect blend of versatile shifting and overdrive comfort. And this is backed up by an athletic suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.

A car with this level of preservation is nearly impossible to find. So when it's on a cool T-bird for an exceptional price, you should view this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don't miss out, call today!
