1985 30th Anniversary Thunderbird:

In 1985 I helped my mom purchase this 1985 30th Anniversary Thunderbird to say a big "THANKS" for helping me complete my college education.  This is the very first Anniversary Edition Thunderbird offered by Ford.  A 35th Anniversary Edition and a 40th Anniversary Edition were later offered.  I later purchased this Thunderbird from my mom in 1996.

There were only 5000 of these limited edition Thunderbirds produced, all have the special Reatta Blue paint and tri-color stripe below the belt molding.  The grille and headlight bezels are body color.  The chrome trim is blacked out.  This limited edition 30th Anniversary Thunderbird came equipped with a throttle-body fuel injected 5.0L V-8, AOD automatic overdrive transmission, 10-hole aluminum wheels, quadra-shock rear suspension, electronic dash, premium sound, sunroof, and all the power accessories you'd expect (power windows, power seats, power antenna, cruise control, air conditioning with automatic climate control, power steering, power brakes, etc.).

Here's a couple of old pictures where this Thunderbird was brand new in 1985. You can see the 1977 Olds Cutlass in the background.  You can check it out in the Team Hoghead Garage!
Here's all the factory books, owners manual, warranty card, etc. that came with this Thunderbird originally. Here's the special 30th Anniversary Thunderbird historical booklet that came with this special Thunderbird.
Here are the 30th Anniversary floor mats STILL in the original Ford box!!  We never installed them. Here are the special pewter 30th Anniversary keys that are UNCUT and still in the velvet bag along with the keychain.
Here you can see the original 30th Anniversary emblems that are also still in the original packaging.  Here you can also see the 1985 Accessory catalog and the original drive-out tag from the dealership!! Here's a close-up of the original 30th Anniversary emblems still in the original unopened bags!!  We also have the instructions as to where these emblems were to be installed on the exterior and interior.

Here are the original belts and hoses too!! Here's the original dealer brochure.
Here's the order form from Ford to receive your Celebration Package from Ford which included.... the interior and exterior emblems, the special keys and keychain, embroidered floor mats, booklet, and Members Only leather jacket as shown in these pictures.
Check out this jacket!!  Dyed to match the car and has a... embroidered Thunderbird emblem on the pocket!!

We also have the ORIGINAL Goodyear Gatorbacks that came on this Thunderbird originally... yes, they've got some miles on them, but still in great shape.  We knew this Thunderbird would be a collector car and have tried to keep all of the items that make this car special.

Today, this Thunderbird has just over 100,000 miles on it.  It still has the original paint and interior in very good condition.

We have ALL the service records for this limited edition Thunderbird and a complete history.
