The 1977 Ford Thunderbird was a drastic departure from the previous generation. Rather than continuing to grow, the Thunderbird, like much of the domestic product line, shrunk in size as a response to growing concerns about fuel costs. The car was nearly 1,000 pounds lighter than the 1976 model, and rode on a wheelbase that was 6 inches shorter. In addition to size, the 1977-79’ Thunderbird’s price was reduced as well, now with a $5,000 base price. The car was still Ford’s entrant in the “perso...nal luxury car” market, however, despite the smaller package.
The Thunderbird’s new look was similar in spirit to earlier models, only now it featured concealed headlights, a more square grille, and a glassier cabin, with opera windows.
The car’s 302-cid, 130-hp V-8 was standard and 149- and 161-hp versions of the 351-cid V-8 were optional. Regardless of engine choice, shifting was managed by a three-speed automatic transmission. This particular example is equipped with the optional 351 V8 and has optional Factory Air Conditioning. The car hails from Arizona where it has only been driven 30,803 since new. From the outside to the inside, every corner of this Thunderbrid is absolutely impeccable. The original owner took extremely good car of his Thunderbird and did not let her go until 2 years ago. We also have all the original paper work for the car including Protect-o-Plate, Warranty Car, Sales Receipt and Owners’ Manual. Overall, the car is in superb condition and belongs in a museum.
