2k: Refined Redneck Cruiser: 1993 Ford Thundebird 5.0 HO Davey Allison Edition

The tenth generation Ford Thunderbird was the last of the original T-birds (the 2002-2005 retro styled reboot is better left forgotten) and shared many components with the Fox mustang, but featured an independent rear suspension and a few other tricks up its sleeve.  Today's feature is a rare "Davey Allison Edition" named after a famous and deceased NASCAR racer.  Find this 1993 Ford Thundebird 5.0 HO Davey Allison Edition for sale in Easley, SC for $2,000 via craigslist.   Tip from Art C.

The Davey Allison edition was a "dealer installed" package and featured strictly cosmetic additions.  It included a Davey Allison console placard, embroidered floor mats, pin stripe on doors/quarter panels and signature on trunk.  At least all the NASCAR bling on this T-bird doesn't add much to the sticker price.

This Thunderbird is powered by the Ford 5.0 HO V8, and puts out 200 horsepower and 275 ft-lbs of torque into a 4-speed automatic gearbox.  Performance is pretty poor because the tenth generation T-bird was a serious heffer...but at least it is rear-wheel-drive and the 5.0 is very tunable.
