2004 Ford Thunderbird
The Ford Thunderbird is a rear wheel drive automobile which was manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury car.
The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sporty two-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette, it was not marketed as a sports car. Ford positioned the Thunderbird as an upscale model and is credited in developing a new market segment, the personal luxury car.
In 2002, production of the Thunderbird started again; a revived 2-seat model was launched which was available through the end of the 2005 model year.
Why This Car Is Special
The maroon 2004 Ford Thunderbird we have at Skyway Classics returns to the original formula for the Thunderbird, a two-seat coupe/convertible layout like the first-generation Thunderbird and retrofuturistic styling to match.
Our Thunderbird is the eleventh generation Thunderbird and built at Ford's Wixom Assembly Plant based on the company's DEW98 platform, which was shared with the Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type. Though the Thunderbird's exterior styling was unique relative to its platform mates, the instrument panel, steering wheel and other trim pieces were borrowed from Lincoln LS.
The engine in our Thunderbird was a Jaguar-designed AJ-35 V8in with it variable valve timing (VVT) and electronic throttle control (ETC) as well as 280 horsepower and 286 lb⋅ft of torque backed by a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Our car was has a great black leather bucket seat interior with Lumbar Support and came optioned with: A/C, AM/FM Radio, Anti-Theft System, CD Player, Cruise Control, Driver/Passenger Airbag, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Rear Window Defogger, Seatbelts, and Tilt Wheel.
The Thunderbird is finished in a deep maroon color of paint Merlot color with the matching color cloth convertible top.
