Up for sale is mint condition 1987 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. This car has been meticulously maintained, never winter driven, always stored indoors, always garaged.
The paint is all original, in pristine condition. The Raven(gray/black) leather interior is also in mint condition(a rare interior in rare condition).
The motor is the original Ford 2.3L turbo with some bolt-ons mods. Originally an automatic car, a 5 speed swap was performed by a professional transmission shop. The auto was replaced with a World Class T5 from a 1991 Mustang, with a Spec Stage 3 clutch.
Installed in the last month is a rebuilt Holset HY35W turbocharger, 52# injectors, tuned with a Moates J3 adapter. The car has also been converted to a Mass Air meter(80mm MAF) from the stock VAM setup.
