2003 Ford Thunderbird
2003 Ford Thunderbird James Bond 007 Edition
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 offer in that year bird.
A mere 10, 343 Consigner stated miles are clocked on this number 537 of 700. Seen here with white hardtop and in convertible mode, 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 60 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.
Spotless white horizontal ribbing vinyl 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 meter. 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 unmarred. Also seen are climate control instrumentation, heated seats, as well as automatic convertible top up and down. Power windows, and 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.
A 3.9 Liter 32 Valve Dual Overhead Cam all aluminum V8 backed by a 5-speed 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.
