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.

Finally starting up my 1977 T-Bird again after a whole year!
Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to start up my T-Bird and give it a
spin. It has been way too long. Last time I started it was Sept. last
year (2010). Starts up again without really any problems, small fuel leak,
40 second fix. lol.
Here is the history of my t-bird:
My dad bought it for his first car and he stopped driving it in 1989
because of some carb problems. My dad saved the car for me and in 2004 I
had the chance to get it running again. To my surprise, after not running
for 15 years, I poured gas down the carb and it fired right over!!!!! After
I bypassed the gas lines (old gas in them) I had it running like new. Haha,
first time I put it in gear it squealed the tires and jumped forward a
couple feet!!! I make sure I have the break to the floor before I put it in
gear now! Later in 2004 I brought the car in to a mechanic to have the
tranny flushed, but because of my lack of car knowledge I found out the
hard way that you don't do that to a old car. It now has tranny problems,
sometimes it wont stay in gear. Which really sucks because the tranny was
working beyond perfect before. It still has the minor carb problems
mentioned above too. And so I parked it in the storage shed in the video
and it is waiting for me to have the money and time to continue rebuilding
