Located in Southern California, selling for $2,800 OBO...

smogged and CA registered
replaced old engine with new (w/ paperwork)
replaced all shocks
new tires
replaced ball joints in front
lower control arms
bushings in the front
brake pads and rotors
tires
front windshield
completely redone the A/C (1000 dollar job w/ paperwork for all new parts)
replaced radiator
upper and lower radiator hoses
thermostat

tan interior, cloth, everything works.

Paint on the hood and trunk are faded. Its still green but its not glossy anymore and none of the junkyards here have green Thunderbirds so might have to get them repainted. Headliner falling apart. Interior is near perfect (except for headliner). Cloth tan interior.
104K miles on the clock.

97 lx (sport??) 'burd
sn95 hub swap (in progress)
cobra rear brake (parts needed)

Need more info/pics.
4.6 v8? 3.8V6? Is engine actually "new" or re-manufactured? If re-manufactured, from what shop?
How close to the coast in Southern Cali do you live? (for rust concerns)

Anything more than 3 miles (conservatively) from the coast is not important for rust purposes here in SoCal.

sorry about the confusion, engine was replaced with another 4.6 of similar mileage and I have paperwork for it. all the gaskets in the engine that needed to be replaced were by the shop. Work was done by a well respected chevy/ford junkyard they do great work. Car is not by the coast isn't rusting
4.6l LX, not a sport.
it shifts a lil harder than it should although the tranny fluid has never been changed. other than that every gear works fine and I get 17mpg in the city and 20 hwy sometimes 21mpg
