Hey everyone, I'm sad to see it go but I'm selling my 1990 35th Anniversary Thunderbird SC. The car runs and drives perfectly fine. Just had it out today, (3/9) to make sure everything was working properly. The motor and supercharger are strong and the trans is shifting fine. One hose clamp needs to be replaced to the water pump, slight leak. The car has been in storage since November. The paint is good except for a few spots of rot, nothing major as you can see in pictures. The interior plastics are becoming separated from age, nothing is cracked though. It is only present on the dash and a door panel. Minor wear inside the car is present but nothing major. The back seats have some minor stains in the suede but I believe it can be cleaned. Any other problem areas I have show in the pictures. Please email me with any questions you may have, or come see it!
New crank sensor
New brakes all around including new rear calipers
Tires are 75% Goodyear Eagle RSA's
Wheels repainted a few years ago
3 1/2 inch cold air intake (I have the original parts)
The rear ride control is not functioning, It is stuck on firm setting (does not affect driving)
The cruise control is not turning on, possibly a fuse but I'm not sure
The original head unit is blown but I still have it
The gauges need to be replaced because the tachometer is not reading properly.
Right rear speaker is blown as well as factory subwoofer.
Soaring Spirit book
Factory Floor mats in plastic
Factory suede cleaning kit

I'd prefer someone to pick up the car on their own, and I encourage taking a look before bidding.

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.

When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
YouGov's mid-year Brand Index rankings of America's best perceived brands has been released, and Ford has found its way to the top. The Dearborn, Michigan based manufacturer beat out online shopping giant Amazon, The History Channel, and home improvement superstore Lowe's, to take the top spot.

Ford jumped from sixth overall in 2012 to first for 2013, but those that have been watching these rankings shouldn't be hugely surprised. Ford was rated the best perceived automotive manufacturer by the same organization last year. The Blue Oval's success on the overall brand rankings is made all the more impressive by the complete lack of other automakers on the list.
YouGov (that is, survey respondents) cited Ford's first quarter of 2013 business, which saw an increase in market share and the best earnings recorded in over 10 years. Successfully launching the Focus and Fusion (pictured) and keeping them fresh in the minds of consumers has also contributed to Ford's best overall score.
Ford's latest don't-call-it-a-minivan is called the S-Max Concept, and it's a looker. As you can see, the conceptual overgrown hatch makes good use of Ford's latest design language, especially at the very front of the S-Max, which bears a striking resemblance to production models that include the Focus, C-Max and Fusion.
Powering the S-Max Concept is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine, and while Ford doesn't actually list power figures for the concept, previous estimates put the mill at 133 kW of power (about 178 horsepower) and 240 Nm of torque (about 177 pound-feet). Inside, there's room for seven passengers and at least some of their luggage.
As you'd expect, the S-Max is loaded up with all of Ford's latest infotainment technology, including Sync and MyFordTouch. More interestingly, there are also onboard heart and blood glucose monitors that we doubt will be seeing the light of production anytime soon. On that topic, don't expect to see any S-Max-shaped vehicles hitting the US market from Ford, either.
