Head to Head

 

About “Madeira”

I've always liked big cars. They are more comfortable than smaller ones and today they just aren't as common. Personally, I like coupes better than sedans, so when this '84 Caprice coupe came along - CHEAP! - last summer when gas was over $4.00 around here, I couldn't pass it up. It looks and rides like new!

About “T Bird”

Here is my 1978 Thunderbird. Car has 70,000mi, org. from Flagstaff AZ. This car has a super rare Police Interceptor Pkg which includes severe duty suspension, multiple coolers, 4core radiator, and a 140mph certified calibrated speedometer.

 

Specs for “Madeira”

No specifications listed.

Specs for “T Bird”

351 Police Interceptor V8, 9in rear end with Posi-trak, heavy duty suspension, stabilizers, 4core radiator, 140mph speedo,
and with all the luxo of a Thunderbird, which is much nicer than the LTD II. According to sources at Ford, they made other mistakes like this car involving Mercury Cougars, and Villager wagons, so I am told. To date, I have only run across one other guy with one of these, and he held on to his car like I did mine. Have owned this Thunderbird since 1990.

 

Factory Options for “Madeira”

This car is completely LOADED! If Chevy offered it, it has it!

Power windows, seats, locks, air cond, AM/FM stereo, cruise, Rallye wheels, rear only Landau top, and Interceptor Pkg.

None. She is pure stock.
