    Default 1983 Thunderbird Heritage - 03.03.10 New parts!

    Well I finally got back into a fox, I sold my old rusted out Altima.
    Car has a 302, so I stay true to my user name. I just got it 2 hours ago so my plans for this week are put my Pioneer deck in it, bolt the 10 holes on, and wax the shit out of it. It only has 122KM, a couple of rust bubbles and a small dent on the hood and some scratches, an old lady bought it new so the thing is loaded.

    Pics tomorrow, my internets is acting slow and I have to go to work in a few hours.

    Hey guys sorry about the wait. Gave the car a good wax, gonna apply another coat tomorrow, and I took the mud flaps off and I'm considering selling them as they're almost brand new.


    Anyway enough talk:









    I'll clean the interior tomorrow and post some pics.

    You know if that car was driven daily I bet it was the mud flaps that saved it from the salt

    What a nice looking car. Never was a fan of mud flaps but they sure saved that car. My 80 had them also and it has zero rust issues. My son has a 83 Heritage also, do you have any interior pics?
