    Default 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe

    This 1988 Turbo Coupe has every option available minus the sunroof, leather, door unlock keypad, and cornering lights.

    Got this a little while ago for $750, been working on it for last 2 weeks.
    When I got it, the engine bay was dirty like it had never been cleaned.

    I started cleaning it and looks like the dirt preserved the shine of everything.

    Most recently I took off the valve cover which seems to have been the original gasket, since it was like opening an egyptian tomb.. gonna finish that today.

    Heres the only pic I have at the moment, but more will definitely come.



    Missing the turbo coupe door emblems if anyone has any spares, let me know what you would like for them.
    I have a whole other parts car with other parts, that I possibly don't need on mine, so maybe we can make a trade.
