My 97 Ford Thunderbird LX Limited Edition
It's a tour of my 97 Ford Thunderbird LX Limited Edition. I went over some
of the features. Showed the engine, did a start up along with an Exhaust clip.
This is my summer weekend ride right here. Got it back in 02 with only
11000 miles on it. I plan on keeping it as my classic.

Reflecting a further industry-wide adoption of smaller vehicle designs in
the interest of improved fuel efficiency and emissions compliance, the
Thunderbird was redesigned for 1980 on the compact Ford Fox platform, which
first appeared only two years prior as the basis for the Ford Fairmont.
Compared to the previous Torino-based Thunderbird and its large 114 inches
(2,896 mm) wheelbase and 215.5 inches (5,474 mm) overall length, the new
Thunderbird lost 5.6 inches (142 mm) of wheelbase and 14.6 inches (371 mm)
in overall length. The squarish styling seen in the previous generation
Thunderbird was favored for the new model, but the small car platform
resulted in a poor translation with a distinctly upright appearance.
Frameless door glass was no longer used; a chrome metal frame was used,
making this car more like a two-door sedan. Combined with the poor
performing 4.2 L (255 cu in) Windsor V8 as a base engine, this Thunderbird
generation was not well received by the public. The available 4.9 L (302 cu
in) Windsor V8 was a welcome alternative to the 255, but with only 131 horsepower (98 kW)
performance was only modestly enhanced. Significantly, though failing to
generate any new interest for the Thunderbird, a six-cylinder engine was
made available for the first time in the Thunderbird's history in 1981, the
200 cu in (3.3 L) Thriftpower Six. For 1982 this was followed up with the
replacement of the straight-six with a V6, the 3.8 L Essex, which was also
now the Thunderbird's standard engine. Hurting the Thunderbird's sales
performance further, the 302 V8 did not return for 1982, leaving the 255 as
the only alternative engine. At 288,638 examples produced between 1980 and
1982, the eighth generation Thunderbird was barely more successful than the
final model year of the previous Thunderbird generation. In order to
revive the Thunderbird's success, a redesign was needed and Ford would
deliver one for 1983.
