1990 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe
1992 Ford Thunderbird SC
Head to Head
Its a 35th Anniversary Edition with about $20,000 put into rebuilding it. This car is 1 of 3,371 made. I am the 4th owner and know the 2 previous owners well (brothers).
I picked this up because the Supercharged 5 speed. I thought this was odd, but it was a good deal and could not pass it up. before I bought it I blue booked it and it said it was worth more then I payed for it so I got it. When I got home later that day I looked on line and found out that they only made 1100 of my car.(66,000 super coups made from 89-95) I thought this would make it hard to find parts, but its not that bad.Almost all the parts fit from the cuogar, and the trans off a mustang will fit.
Before I bought the car, I had the Ford dealer look at it and tell me if it was worth the 1,600 I paid for it. They said it was worth a lot more then that even with the problems it had. The guy also said the problems would be easy to fix. So after 14 weeks of trouble shooting and talking to some motortopia members several times a day the "easy fix" is finally got finished. And she looks so much better on the road then on jacks stands. I am still having some miner problems with her, but what girl is going to be hassle free? (Just kidding......kinda)
