This Ford Thunderbird from 1971 is partly restored and has several new parts. Engine and attached parts were revised and the underbody was sealed. The C6 gearbox was renewed and a special exhaust system was built in.
The Ford Thunderbird, called T-Bird in short, is considered a classic of American automobile history, as it symbolizes the USA of the 1950s and 1960s like no other car does. Its name is one of the longest used trade names in automobile and industrial history – comparably only with the American icons Corvette and Mustang. Initially, the Thunderbird competed against the Corvette and had the advantage of a V8 engine. Over the years the Thunderbird series became more and more replaceable and the vehicle lost its reputation of being innovative in terms of technology and design. The style of the models from the production years 2002 to the end of 2005 was an homage to the original version and an attempt to recapture the the old models' character. They were a reminiscence of one of the most legendary cars ever. (ala)
