My parents have a 1983 Thunderbird - Heritage Edition in Midnight Blue that is in absolute mint condition. They are the original owners and have only driven this car 11,848 miles. It has been in the garage and covered for years, driven only occassionally. It even has new tires! I would like to know if there is a museum that would like to buy this pristine vehicle. It is way too nice and rare to be driven around for pleasure.

Hi,
I have a 1983 Ford Thunderbird Heritage Edition. It has 63K miles on it, garage kept, in like new condition. I purchased it from the original owner. I am trying to find out what this car might be worth in todays market. I am thinking of selling it.

Thanks everyone for responding to my original question dated almost three years ago. Nothing has changed as far as the vehicle is concerned. It's still sitting in my parents garage in Cleveland, Ohio. I will be visiting there for the fourth of July and hope to take some photos that I can post.
I do not have an asking price because I still need to do some research on what the car might be worth.
I was really hoping to get it on display somewhere for many enthusiasts to enjoy and where it would be well cared for. It is almost like new.

Son - Don't get rid of it. I had a 1983 Ford Thunderbird Heritage. It was a beauty. Chocolate brown leather interior, digital dashboard, cream over beige with brown pin striping, wing windows. Gosh, I miss that car! I wish I had never gotten rid of it in 1990, but that is life. I would love to find a similar car. I'd be willing to pay 5-6K for it today.

I'm the same, Steve! I had a beautiful '83 Heritage edition, white with the plushy premium red velour interior. I even sold mine off about the same time as you. Wonderful mileage, ride like a cloud, it was a great car. With the 'aerobird' becoming older, these might actually start going up in value someday but not yet. I'd say one with fantastically low mileage could be worth as much as $7500 or more if it was in perfect shape but if it's been stored for years and years it's worth more like $5-6k just for the reason it has sat for such a long period of time and needs to be refurbished before it can be driven. I seriously doubt if any museum will buy the car but may accept it as a donation which would then be a tax deduction. The next best thing would be to sell it to a collector such as me or maybe Steve who would have it as a second or third car and just drive it in the summer to car shows.^_^

Just doing a little research...just put money down on a 83. Great find with only 29k on it. Digital display....where are the gauges? This was just showing speed and fuel. I don't get the car for a few days and I was just wondering......thanks

Just to let you all know, the beauty in my original post dated Aug. 1, 2009 is still sitting in my parent's garage in Cleveland, Ohio with 11, 848 original miles on it.

Anyone with a serious desire to purchase this vehicle should leave a post accordingly, including offer, and I will contact my parents about their interest to sell. This vehicle is as described, but it hasn't been driven in many years.

Thank you.
