1988 Ford Thunderbird 5.0 LX - roller project

Post by grampy666 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 2:23 pm

2-door coupe, 118K, V8 302/5.0 EFI (not HO), automatic/OD, factory dual exhaust, class 2 trailer hitch, 6-way power seats, power moonroof, power windows, power door locks, digital dash, Ford premium sound system, gold exterior, gold cloth interior. clear title.

does not run. needs a gas tank and fuel pump. motor turns over and catches on starting fluid.

Spent its life in Chicago and Maine. As with any 30 year old car in the rust belt, it has rust issues, the worst of it being the doors, which are beyond repair. gas tank is out and body/frame rust behind the rear end looks like it could be restored with sandblasting and paint. No floor, trunk or frame rust-through, everything looks solid.

Includes my stash of parts - a black Turbo Coupe hood, black fenders, black doors and 4 16" turbo coupe "snowflake" wheels.

Come and see for yourself if interested. If and when I install a new tank and fuel pump and tackle the rust repair, price goes up.

Located in Maine. Delivery available as far south as Hartford, CT for negotiable fee
