429 Thunderjet: 1971 Ford Thunderbird

Whenever someone asks me to explain why I like the Thunderbird, I always tell them it is because of the hooknose styling and suicide doors. The questioner will then look around to see if I’m being followed by men in white coats…but I’m not, because I lost them years ago, but if you want a rad Thunderbird, don’t get one with a porthole window or a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, get one with a 429 cubic inch Thunderjet V8 and 4-doors. Find this 1971 Ford Thunderbird offered for $6,500 in South River, NJ via craigslist. Tip from Art C.
