Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is excited to have this 1983 Ford Thunderbird Drag Car for sale!
This Thunderbird is well known in the racing community here in Detroit. It is a tried and true race car and does exactly what it needs to when those 4 tires hit the racetrack. The first thing you notice is the paint color. You look at this car and go WOW is that bright. This Ford is painted in highlighter green, if the sound of the motor doesn't turn heads, the paintjob sure will. The interior has been gutted for weight loss purposes in order to obtain the fastest times at the track. It still retains its original dash that has been modified to fit some aftermarket gauges so you can keep track of all the operations of this high-powered motor. The true showpiece of the car is what's under the hood. The heart of this beast is a 447 cubic inch small block Ford V8 that roars through its open headers at the touch of the throttle. Helping that motor get you moving is 2-speed Powerglide transmission that is common in cars of this nature. This Thunderbird is a real beast and will give you the best kind of adrenaline rush when driving it.
