2003 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
Purchased in January 2013 for wife who loved it.
White with hardtop and black and white interior.
Had only 73000 miles on it and looked hardly used.
came with all service records.
Car was fun until the summer when the HVAC fan controller
would only run at full blast.
Found out that part was unavailable EVERYWHERE in the world but just as important cost to replace was over $1600 in labor!
While still trying to find part 3 of the coil on plugs modules failed.
Then transmission started to make noises.
So car had to go .
Loved looks and ride but!
Looks and ride and very quick acceleration.
Needs parts reliability and more importantly parts availability.
It is easier to get parts for a Model T!
