Car description

RE-LIST. This vehicle was just featured on this webiste:https://barnfinds.com/turbo-5-speed-1988-ford-thunderbird/

1988 Ford Thunderbird 2.3L 4 cylinder Turbo Coupe 5 speed manual. Garaged vehicle. 62,000 miles. Drives tight and stops straight. Starts, idles and accelerates as it should. Posting this vehicle for a fellow car guy who doesn’t have an eBay account. I have personally driven this vehicle 63 miles this past weekend, no issues. Clutch feels right. Gauges are operable. NO RUST.

Body is straight. VIN tags on body panels. Deep paint. Nice luster.

Interior is crisp and clean. No noticeable wear on driver’s seat, shifter or steering wheel. Power seats work. Power windows work well.

The exterior door locks illuminate. When you open either door the annoying door open signal chimes. The dash indicator illuminates that the door is open. When the doors open the lights on the door panels illuminate, the dome light illuminates, the underdash lights illuminate. When you open the center console the convenience light illuminates. At night the gauges and instrument panel backlighting is nice and bright too.

Underhood engine compartment is clean and stock. No fluid leaks. No excessive corrosion on hardware or metal surfaces.

This vehicle has not been overdetailed.

Clean CarFax details and documents milage and no accidents.

Please keep in mind all 25+ year old classics have some nuisances. The only issues I personally see with this car is that the a/c is blowing cold but not ice cold and the alloy wheels have some discoloration. Also noted that the passenger's side fog light is being replaced this weekend.
