Nice Ride Reminds Me Of Better Times — Like the big car ride, i like the way it drives and handles, takes you back when gas prices didn't matter style did ! They put the extras in the Crome bumpers chrome on the body lines around the wheel wells , metal not plastic !

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very nice original car. Well kelp    

Cons: Has some age being original , large car compared to cars now not very economical 17-19 mpg.

Big Ol Boat With Out A Motor — Ok so the car DOES run but it needs carb work. its been sitting way too long and not been driven in a long time. Got it for 100 bucks. then I hauled it home. It needs tired and carb work and a good home. 80,000 miles most likely original

Pros: Good interior and no body rust

Cons: one dented fender from loading it and faded paint. plus carb work needed

Just Bought A '79 And Love It — I really enjoy the ride and the appearance of this car and am currently trying to restore it. There are a few disappointing areas however. The first that comes to mind is the lack of horsepower and the overall gas mileage it gets. I know, its a trade off, but right now I seem to be lacking both the ponies and the good gas mileage. Overall though I would not trade this car for anything. Well, maybe anything is a strong word.

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
