1971 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Coupe with Black Vinyl TopThe 1971 Ford Thunderbird
My name is Al and I am a broker. I have been hired to sell this car on ebay. The pictures used in this auction were taken with my digital camera. The pictures have not been re touched, manipulated or photo shopped.
I took over an estate of 11 collected cars, and this car is one of the last three to be sold. The family is in the process of locating any documents, receipts and paperwork for all the cars including this one. The car that we have in this auction, is a very complete and kept original 1971 Ford Thunderbird, with the 429 V-8 Thunder Jet Engine, and 3 speed automatic transmission. These cars were built for comfort, power and durability. The vehicle carries the California White license plates that are current, however, it does come with the original California Blue License plates, in case, you would like to use them, they are available with the car. Vehicle comes with clear title. The odometer reads and states, 86,353 miles.
It does drive like a T-Bird. Fun and nostalgia wrapped into one car. It has been garaged for many years. Engine starts up and is strong running. Tires and brakes are in good working order. It has been re painted with the original OEM Ford Yellow. The vinyl top looks original. Noted that the Air conditioning system isinoperable. Both power windows do not go up and down. It looks like the trunk lid seal may have not have sealed properly at one time, so you can see some surface rust in the trunk floor. Well, I guess there will be some things that may need some work on an older car, that I may not know about. However, the body looks straight, has had no wrecks or accidents. The interior, seems quite nice, It looks like no body sat in the back seat. I think to be able to purchase a classic and drive it, at an affordable price, just might be the fun car you have been looking for. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself. You just might find yourself behind the wheel of a Thunderbird.
So What Was Happening In The Year 1971?
The 1971 Ford Thunderbird, was the last of this body style. 1967-1971, had carried this traditional looking T-Bird for about 5 years, The 1971 Thunderbird, had the tried and true Thunder Jet Engine, connected to the traditional Ford 3 speed automatic transmission. The Thunderbird was a small part of the 9,146 two door hard top coupes produced that year. It came with rear wheel drive and did a great job in moving as one of the lighter cars of the day at 4,400 pounds. In dollars and sense? The average american annual income was about $10,600. The average home cost about $25,250.00, and a gallon of gas cost about 40 cents a gallon, and the average postage stamp about 4 cents. Those were the days, weren't they? Well you can re live almost all that, by taking this one home today.
