2003 Ford Thunderbird Convertible 007
A 2002 Thunderbird was driven in the Bond film “Die Another Day” by Bond girl Halle Berry (Jinx). In the spring of 2003, Ford sold 700 limited edition 007 Ford Thunderbirds to commemorate the first appearance of a Thunderbird in the 40-year history of the James Bond film franchise. The Special Coral Color matched Berry's swimsuit, and is similar to the 1956 Sunset Coral offered in that year's bird.
A mere 37,086 Consigner stated miles are clocked on this number 150 of 700. Seen here with white hardtop and in convertible mode (black top), the car is in near showroom condition, and surely a collectible at this low mileage. A Bond time capsule…James Bond.
All panels straight with gaps where they should be, virtually unharmed with any dents or dings, and covered in Coral glory. A white hardtop with the iconic porthole mimicking 50 styling is removable to reveal a wind in the hair experience. All chrome and bright work is in very fine condition, as well as all power accessories. Convertible top appears unused and is actually dusty from being sealed in its time capsule. 21 Spoke modern style chrome wheels are on all fours. No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die….for this car.
Spotless white horizontal ribbing leather bucket seats make up the small but ergonomically styled passenger compartment. Luxurious black carpet covers the flooring and rear deck behind the seating. Dash contains white analog instrumentation, with a digital mileage/trip meters. A 6-disc CD player as well as an AM/FM stereo radio are molded into the center vertical console. An automatic transmission shift lever sits between the driver and passenger. All interior surfaces are immaculate, and unmarried. Also seen are climate control instrumentation, heated seats, as well as automatic convertible top up and down. Power windows, power locks, power mirrors, variable delay auto off headlamps and power seats, are the conveniences list. On steering wheel cruise control and sound system controls adorn both sides. 007 aluminum appliqués are on the dash as well. “I'll do anything with a woman with a knife”.
A 3.9 Liter 32 Valve DOHC all aluminum V8 backed by a 5-speed select shift automatic transmission with overdrive is seen in the crowded but pristine engine bay. A glimpse of a dual exhaust system with bright tips, 4-wheel ABS vented disc brakes, and a very clean underside. “Well I like to do some things the old-fashioned way”.
Clean and just like it rolled off the factory floor, all good underneath. Independent McPherson strut suspension on all 4 corners, and a 3.58 conventional axle are looking fine…” There's a saying in England; where there's smoke there's fire…”.
An overall quick starter, smooth runner and nice handling capabilities, this Coral colored car performed beautifully on the test track and passed with flying colors. “I thought Christmas only comes once a year?”.
