Value of a 1985 Ford Thunderbird


Asked by ptreese83 Dec 24, 2009 at 04:13 PM about the 1985 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Could someone tell me the Value of a 1985 Ford Thunderbird Fila Edition. Keep in mind it is in good condition, but i do drive it around as my every day car.

My Transmission is rebuilt, my engine is used engine with 100,000 miles, new radiator , new alternator, new starter, new voltage regulator, new headliner, the seats are the orginal but are in very good condition.

Could someone tell me what is the blue book value of this car. Thanks!

Well, it's a fox chassis bird. And it's an 85 (square 4-headlight model, right?) These are already two counts against you. It's not exactly collectible. Depending on condition, it's worth $1000-2000. I have some badges from a FILA edition and if I remember right they were all 2.3L models with an automatic. Pictures are everything when asking "what's my car worth"? Be sure to post some. Here's a few helpful websites. Post it in their forums under "cars for sale." the thunderbird/cougar club of america post in the classifieds section, also useful for how-to's. the thunderbird super coupe / 89-92 mercury cougar xr7 club of america post in classifieds. less useful info for your model. Hope this helps.
