A great car for performance upgrades, or just a daily driver
The passenger side head gasket leaks oil.
Rear differential bushing worn out.
Driver's side door sags and needs new door pins.
Radiator side tank started to leak so replaced the radiator.
Power antenna mast replaced.
Headlight turned yellow and leaked so replaced with new ones.
Transmission shifted hard into second gear - accumulator spring broken - replaced springs and flushed transmission fluid - replaced with Mercon V fluid - Ford bulletin.
This car has plenty of power.
I have updated many of things on the engine and transmission to make it faster.
Very reliable, comfortable, and handles great.
A site to look at if you like Thunderbirds is www.tccoa.com
There are many people who get together and have meets around the Charlotte and Pinehurst area in NC.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
