VERY CLEAN CONDITION! JUST 39K ACTUAL MILES! 2 OWNERS, CLEAN HISTORY, BOTH TOPS!

Are the 'new' Thunderbirds going to be as collectable as the originals? Even with their recent spike in popularity and meteoric rise in values, the verdict is still out (after all, the bar was set very high by the legendary model), but the bottom line is that ultra-clean, low-mileage examples like this 2004 Ford Thunderbird represent a first-class ticket to nostalgic motoring that can hardly be rivaled.

Ford knew what they were doing when they rolled out the 2-seater Thunderbird convertible, capturing the look and feel of the original while updating in every way. This one wears gorgeous Merlot Metallic paint, an elegant color that complements the long, sleek design and makes this Thunderbird look far more expensive than it is. The dark paint accentuates the swooping profile and works better than many of the other colors offered, and because this a 2004-only color, you won't be seeing too many of these Merlot beauties at your local cruise-in. With just 39,729 actual miles showing on the clock, you know this one is in great shape in every way and has lived an easy life, like most Thunderbirds, as a future collectable. As such, it's never seen snow, never been wrecked, and if it's even been ... Please ask for the full description.

VERY CLEAN CONDITION! JUST 39K ACTUAL MILES! 2 OWNERS, CLEAN HISTORY, BOTH TOPS!

Are the 'new' Thunderbirds going to be as collectable as the originals? Even with their recent spike in popularity and meteoric rise in values, the verdict is still out (after all, the bar was set very high by the legendary model), but the bottom line is that ultra-clean, low-mileage examples like this 2004 Ford Thunderbird represent a first-class ticket to nostalgic motoring that can hardly be rivaled.

Ford knew what they were doing when they rolled out the 2-seater Thunderbird convertible, capturing the look and feel of the original while updating in every way. This one wears gorgeous Merlot Metallic paint, an elegant color that complements the long, sleek design and makes this Thunderbird look far more expensive than it is. The dark paint accentuates the swooping profile and works better than many of the other colors offered, and because this a 2004-only color, you won't be seeing too many of these Merlot beauties at your local cruise-in. With just 39,729 actual miles showing on the clock, you know this one is in great shape in every way and has lived an easy life, like most Thunderbirds, as a future collectable. As such, it's never seen snow, never been wrecked, and if it's even been in the rain, it was only in an emergency because this was not a daily driver. And with only 2-owners since new and a lifetime spent in the Southern United States - imperfections are very minimal and any that can be found could easily be remedied with a buff-and-wax. Build quality on these cars is quite good (Ford obviously knew their halo car had better be excellent in every way) and the various parts fit together better than you'd expect, highlighted by doors that close with a reassuringly heavy feeling. Unlike so many 2-seat convertibles, this 'Bird feels substantial, almost like the hand-built cars of old. There's still a bit of chrome as an homage to previous generations, mostly on the grille, and all of those details are in as-new condition, too. And should you ever get caught out in the rain, this baby comes with both a power soft top and color-matched auxiliary hard top that both seal up flush.

The tan leather interior is a dramatic contrast to the dark red bodywork, elegant and sporty in every way. With such low mileage, there are almost no signs of use save for a few wrinkles and surface-level scratches on the driver's seat leather, and even those might have been there when the hides were still on the cow. Black carpets are largely unmarked, protected by black carpeted floor mats outlined with tan piping, and the lovely leather steering wheel isn't dirty or majorly discolored, which is pretty remarkable for a light-colored piece that's in such a high traffic area. Heck, even the shifter knob is wrapped in matching tan leather and looks great too. Just about everything was standard on the 11th generation Thunderbirds, including automatic climate control, power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, cruise control, and a powerful factory AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds great when you're running alfresco. The big, clear gauges have a retro feel but aren't duplicates of old gauges, but rather a modern take on a classic look, right down to the turquoise-colored pointers. A tan power convertible top is the one you'll use most often, but it also includes a color-matched porthole hardtop so you can use it year-round.

Ford's 3.9 liter DOHC V8 engine is smooth, torquey, and utterly capable in the smooth 2-seat T-Bird. It's not made for tire-shredding performance, but if you want to hustle, it's ready and willing. Properly maintained from new, it's turn-key ready for a cross-country road trip, and with the 5-speed automatic transmission behind it, fuel economy is decent. Like the original Thunderbirds, the suspension is supple without being soggy, and the all-independent setup rarely puts a tire wrong. Big power disc brakes give it a level of confidence earlier Thunderbirds would have appreciated and the factory dual exhaust has just the right eight-cylinder burble. This one currently wears a set of 17-inch chrome Thunderbird wheels with 235/50/17 Michelin radials, and the bright wheels are the perfect complement to the Merlot paint, making this a very flashy T-Bird indeed.

Only time will tell if these are legitimate collectables that will bring huge bucks, but buying a low-mileage Thunderbird in a great color combination is a smart first step toward progress. Call today!
