SVO in a Suit: 1985 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
The ninth generation of Ford’s iconic Thunderbird road on the fox platform shared with the Ford Mustang, Mercury Cougar, and Lincoln Mk VII. For the most part this version of the Thunderbird was a big boulevard cruising personal luxury coupe, but Ford built a few special models that are interesting for low-buck collectors and turbo fox fanatics alike. The OG exposed headlight T-Bird Turbo Coupe had those classic headlights for the 1985 and 1986 model years and today’s example is covered in a sweet two-tone silver over gray with wicked red pinstripes. This is the kind of suit I’d wear. Find this 1985 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe offered for $5,800 in Olmsted Falls, OH via faceface turbobook.

45,000 miles, 2.3 turbo, 5 speed. Car sat for a while not sure how long but a few years for sure, parked because it smoked and was never worked on, seemed the seal went on turbo so it smoked, I sourced a turbo and fixed that, at same time we did valve seals also as that’s a known issue after they sit, now has zero smoke, runs and drives like a new car! Body is clean not perfect but overall very clean, some tower rust nothing critical, see pics of under car, has undercoat that may have helped since it sat, been repainted at sone point and no signs of a wreck that Incan find, I know what to look for as a body man’s son, interior is in nice shape as seen, new tires. I have put 60 ish miles so far and continue to if it’s nice out and roads dry. Asking 5800.00 obo cash at pick up, want it shipped? you come see car and buy, then arrange it. Title is in my name and registered. Located Olmsted falls Ohio.

Banal comment… I really like it. I don’t know why. Even the anti-aerodynamic recessed headlights. Maybe I need to start a stick rescue, take in any forlorn blob with a manual transmission.
You could choose far worse life pursuits. My preferred ride wears a
“Get Your Shift Together” magnetic emblem, as does my daughter’s. Seems i taught her well.
I really, really like it so.. doubly banal, I guess. I’d take it out on Saturday nights to get vanilla ice cream.
My friend’s dad had one of these in high-school, I LOVED that car!!!
