Following a prolonged absence, the Thunderbird nameplate returned on an all-new two-seat roadster platform designed to recall the 1955-57 first-generation cars. The exciting 2002 Ford Thunderbird was positioned to lead a host of long-time enthusiasts into a new era with modern features and excellent performance blended with a nostalgic personality. Classic lines combine seamlessly with outstanding design and functionality.

Finished in Whisper White with a stylish two-tone red and black interior; the Thunderbird possesses a sporty elegance that is reminisce of the initial cars of the mid-‘50s, just as intended. Power is derived from a 3.9-liter, 252-hp V-8 engine that is paired with a five-speed automatic that is smooth and responsive. Inside the 2002 Ford Thunderbird, you are surrounded with the comfort of leather-clad fittings, air conditioning, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, intermittent wipers, remote trunk release, AM/FM/CD with six-CD changer, rear window defogger (on removable hardtop), steering wheel controls; power windows, door locks, seats, soft-top, windows, steering and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. Chromed alloy factory wheels, round headlights, eggcrate grille and the porthole on the hardtop complete the exterior with retro flair.
