1992 Ford Thunderbird 2dr Coupe


This is my 2nd SC and it is a blast to drive, when it runs. I bought it with bad head gaskets, the dealer ran 87 octane when it requires 91 or better. I have driven both the auto and 5 speed and the 5 speed is by far more fun than the auto though it is notchy and does get expensive to fix if it breaks. But then again, the whole car is like that. The handling is outstanding for a car its size and it does it with out sacraficing the ride. The interior is a little dated for today but it still is nice and doesn't have all the squeaks and rattles that would be expected from a car this old. Over all, if you don't have a strong mechanical back ground or a deep wallet this car is not for you.

Best Features

Selectable ride control. Instant power when needed. Good handling with Lincoln ride. Sports seats that keep you in place during hard cornering. The manual transmission. Usually doesn't get too much attention from the police when you are speeding.

Worst Features

Drop the notchy 5 speed for a 6 speed, the extra gear would be nice. Bigger brakes for those back road and mountain drives. Lower curb weight.
