Forget Barrett-Jackson: Dozens of '70 and '71 Thunderbirds Going For PeanutsMurilee Martin4/30/08 11:00amFiled to: Auction19701970 Ford Thunderbird1970s19711971 Ford ThunderbirdProject Car HellFordThunderbird43EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkSince helping our Czech friend BobAsh get a Malaise Corvette from California to his homeland was so easy, I agreed to keep an eye open for a nice Crown Victoria Police Interceptor for him. After all, roaring through the streets of Prague in a genuine California cop car would be almost as much fun as roaring through the streets of San Francisco in a genuine Tatra 603. Last weekend I stopped by the auction yard at which I bought my Crown Vic a few years back, and found that the inventory included quite a few early 70s Ford Thunderbirds. In fact, the inventory was almost entirely 1970 and 1971 T-Birds. Make the jump for more photos and the rest of the story.
