1983 Ford Thunderbird Heritage 5.0 from North America
Fantastic; it's what dreams were made from
Interior is perfect and the body is almost new looking. I found my second Thunderbird in a storage that just happened to be climate controlled, and it had only 52000 on the car with paperwork confirming it was a one owner car.
The problem I am having is the windows seem to have a strong motor, but yet the windows don't wish to go up or down. I am trying to get any info on why.
I love the car, from the power when you step on it to the ride; it's still just like it was, but most of all, the looks you get when you pull up someplace are just priceless. This is my second one, and I just love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Not sure how the window tracks were designed on that model car. But given the age and its minimum usage, I would say the window runs are dried up. They should work again when you place lubricant on the window runs, this helps the windows slide up and down easier. My old 2000 Grand Marquis had this problem, the motors were strong but the windows were struggling to go up and down. Placing the lubricant on them solved the problem and prevented unnecessary life loss on the window motors. I forget what the exact name is called, but Motorcraft makes it.
I am very jealous. I had a 1983 Thunderbird Heritage. I loved that car and regret getting rid of it in 1990. Can you post pics? My car was cream and beige with a chocolate brown leather interior. I'd love to have another T-Bird Heritage again.
Are you still looking for one?
