From ebay listing:
have a 1983 Ford Heritage Thunderbird for sale. This is one of the
sharpest 83 Thunderbirds out there, it has a custom turquoise paint job
highlighted with teal green and hot pink body trim.The paint job is over
20 years old but still looks like new with the exception of where a
motorcycle I had fell into the rear drivers side leaving a couple of
small dents and a chip out of the paint as shown in supplied photo .
Inerior looks practically new with the exception of the headliner
sagging some , car has a custom sound system with 4 separate amplifiers
that total about 1500 watts and 8 speakers including 2 10″ Bazooka subs ,
this car actually won 1st place in the 1st sound wars competition at
Audition Hi Fi in Kingsport,TN back in the day.Motor is a 302 and
transmission is AOD. Car has developed a water leak that I assume is the
water pump , it will also need a new master cylinder for the brakes , I
replaced the fuel pump but the new one makes a whining sound though it
does work well. Feel free to ask anything you need to know and I will
tell you. This car just needs a few things to be a spectacular car.
I think you got the Mustang Fuel pump by mistake if it is whining common problem…
My Mom bought an 83-84 ? T-Bird it was a champagne color somewhat rare had the V-6 was a much better car then her 80 Monte-Carlo that was bought from Budget rentals used car's not a wise decision and that Monte had 2.23 gears with a turbo-200 slow as hell and even slower on a long grade but great mpg.The T-Birds brakes always scared me as pedal height changed with each application or un-even as they say unnerving @ best.My Mom left this world in 95 and my brother took the T-bird south to Phoenix from Seattle his oldest teen boy ran the car into a support beam @ the local HS messed up the drivers fender and bumper..so sat then went to the recycler was an easy fix but they shit canned it.
