Low Miles: 1985 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe

I hate that classic cars has become a lot like collecting stamps, where low mileage is more important that actual condition and things are only original once...but mostly the prices people want for these things.  Anyway, if I'm going to get a really low mile car from the past, it'll be something like this T-Bird Turbo-Coupe...because I could actually drive it! Find this 1985 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe offered for $6,500 via craigslist in Sacramento, CA. Tip from Safety Fast.

See a better way to drive something turbo?


  1. Is the dog extra? He seems to want to be in the pictures...

  2. I had one. Red. Put 130K miles on it before selling it. Only issue was the metric size wheels and tires. Michelin was the only vendor and they don't make them anymore. I understand Coker has them for $350 a tire.

  3. Yes, this car is in that sweet spot where adding another 10,000 miles will not affect its value one way or the other. Drive and Enjoy! My personal preference would be a V-8 with the 5-speed.
