1978 Ford Thunderbird

For sale in our Detroit showroom is this gorgeous cream white 1978 Ford Thunderbird Diamond Jubilee Edition. When thinking of the Thunderbird, two words should come to mind: performance and luxury. This seventh-generation Thunderbird is known as the "basket handle" Bird referring to its unique roof treatment and was the best-selling T-Bird line of all time. In 1978, Ford offered the "Diamond Jubilee Edition" Thunderbird to commemorate the company's 75th year as an auto manufacturer. This option package escalated the price of the car to almost $12,000 (USD), virtually doubling the base price. Lighter than its predecessors, this Bird is powered by 351 cubic-inch, 5.8 liter "Windsor" V-8, providing around 135 horsepower along with 245 foot-ponds of torque, which really helps get this Bird into motion despite being a mid-sized car. With the 1979's "bird beak" style front grille work and bumper, this car projects high-style and that helped make it so popular. On the inside you'll find warm tan carpet and tan cloth seats which are so comfortable you'd think you were sitting in an easy chair. It is fully equipped with options such as automatic transmission, A/C and heater, AM/FM radio with cassette player, plus cruise control. This is a fine driver-quality luxury car, waiting to take you to cruises, car shows or a even a trip to the grocery store in style. Other great options on this Thunderbird include power locks, power seats, power windows, carpeted trunk and tilt wheel. For more information on this 1978 Ford Thunderbird including 100 HD photos and a video, please visit our website at www.gatewayclassiccars.com or call 313-982-3100 to speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
