2003 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
Well this is a nice vehicle. I watched the car for a couple of years before purchasing a brand new one. And there is one interesting thing about the vehicle. It has a winter hardtop salon type roof with the opera windows. You store this on a rack/gurney. When we removed the top to go to convertible status in late May, 2004 the paint all around the trunk where the top meets the roof very easily lifted up. Had to repaint. So here's Ford's 21st century fix. They send you a kit with plastic strips. You place it down along the outer reaches of the rear deck and than you place the top back on. Just not engineered well.
Heated seats, excellent visibility. Interestingly enough it is quiet when its only used as a rag top version. The hard top roof does make some racket.
