1971 Ford ThunderbirdReview

You Have To Drive It Or Even Better Own One — overall i like everything about this car except for the hydro-wipe system.itis the only thing that has given me problems.the 427thunder-jet engine is a real performer. i like that ford had retained the wrap-around rear seats the car drives very smooth. it almost compares to my 66 bird. braking could be a little smoother, had replaced front end rubbers and rides very smooth,great body lines. overall very fun to drive with quick acceleration, smooth handling.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: great hot-rod or lowrider

Cons: the wiper system

More To Come — I just got my T-Bird and have started diging in on the project. A sleek black ride w/ gobs of horse power is the goal.

Owner for 0 years, 2 months

Miles Driven per Year:1,000

Pros: Great powerplant w/ much room for do it yourself improvement. Great late 60's- early 70's style. Dont see alot of them.

Cons: Old electrical options tend to act up, usualy need replaced.

50 Anniversity, Limited Edition By heinem1

Drive and rides very nice. Wife's car and she loves the Cashmere color and looks. White cashmere leather interior feels soft and is better than the basic 50 Anniversity we had previously. The retro l... Read More

Retro T-bird Ok, But No Classic By Luger

The retro-Birds are nice looking and average performers, but they miss being either a luxury car or a sports car. The trunk is so shallow that there is little storage. Ford got the retro part right,... Read More

Red Hot 2003 Thunderbird By Michelewoodward5

Excellent Ford Thunderbird! By Chrystael

The Ford Thunderbird is a weekend cruiser. Drop the top for a great canyon drive with the retro look and feel, but all the modern requirements of a nice reliable car. This vehicle is the perfect pleas... Read More

Great Car By Vwags

This car is a joy to drive. The style is very nice and it has the power and handling to support the style. The car gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a V8. I would think long and hard about get... Read More

Impressive By 97TBirdOwner

The Ford Thunderbird in this generation is a very nice mix of performance, luxury, and style. They can be relatively inexpensive if you look around and get lucky. I drive this one daily, and as mentio... Read More
