Yep, another land yacht that sucks gas and has approximately 32 lbs. of chrome, not including the bumpers. I spotted this one today, and immediately latched onto the listing.
For sale in Richmond, it would look great on the 4th of July with its red, white and blue color scheme. The color combo shouldn’t work, but it kind of does, probably because it’s on such an obnoxiously luxurious ’70s land cruiser, the vaunted 1972-76 “Thunder Thighs” Thunderbird, bwahaha!
I’ve done a couple posts on this era of Thunderbrougham, so I’ll keep it short. Per the listing: “’74 Ford Thunderbird with Ford 460 motor. Very clean 61k original miles, I am the 2nd owner as of Jan 2021 have clean & clear title. Vehicle runs and drives as it should and cruises down the road with no issues at all.”
“Trim pieces are all there, nothings missing including original wheel covers. Within the last 30 days I have already done a tune up on the vehicle. I changed exhaust, spark plugs, cap and rotor, spark plug wires, oil change, cooling system flushed and carburetor rebuild with all new gaskets, float, check balls and needle valves.”
“Float was adjusted to factory specs of 15/16 all electric windows mirrors, power seats, etc. all work as they should. The car is a cruiser, not a muscle car however it has plenty of power, truly a classic, asking 9500 obo. Willing to trade for other classic cars in need of work i.e ’70s Dodge, Ford, Chevy however cash is king!”
Anyway, check it out here ifin you’re so inclined. Keep calm, Brougham on, and always tip your bartender! And to the new owner: re-dye that carpeting, posthaste!
