Turbo Bird: 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe

The Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe was introduced in 1983 on the ninth generation Thunderbird platform. Sure, you could get a 5.0 windsor V8 as an upgrade over the basic V6, but if you really wanted performance you needed to step up to the 2.3 liter Turbo-4. Selecting the Turbo Coupe added a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, limited slip differential, big 16-inch wheels and sporty analog gauges. Today a nice used example is cheap and fun. Find this 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe offered for $5000 in Danville, CA via craigslist.

Nice original car. I have owned this car for 32 years. The reason I have kept it so long is it has been the nicest driving and most reliable car I have ever owned. 5 speed manual, 4 cylinder turbo. I have kept it up. Outstanding road car.

Recent work: Air Conditioning, fuel pump, fuel filter, water pump, timing belt, heater core, radiator, new hoses, belts, relay control module, plus more than I can remember.

Original paint, no dents or rust, still looks and drives very nice.

Time for a new driver.
