I saw a fair bit of those on airbb and vrbo when looking for a cabin in the mountains. Someone could fix it up and find a long term campground and rent it out.

This could be a cool driver.


Anyone have any experience with the Super Coupe?

View attachment 390602
some....heavy driving feel. Sorta sporty. Not a super sleeper signal light racer. The interior wasn't really up graded so fairly soft seating with no real sporty feel. My father spent a period driving nothing but Thunder chickens as demos. Then it was exploders. The super coup was not on the allowed list but we got to play with one or two. They did have some reliability but of the same era the ol Pony car was still much more fun..... The Birds seemed heavy but this also made it a bunch more comfortable to ride in over a distance( over the pony car). Back seat could seat a average adult but wasn't comfortable long......the Crown Vic did everything as well and more room with the interceptor package.

The 1989 Ford Thunderbird SC Specs And Features
The engine in the Ford Thunderbird Super Coupé is a 3.8-liter, overhead valve 90-degree V-6 cylinder with two valves per cylinder supercharged petrol engine. It generates 207 hp at 4,000 rpm and 315 lb-ft of maximum torque at 2,600 rpm in this application.

To be clear the police interceptor I compared the Super Chicken to was also a bit latter production dated car. It still makes a good comparison though as lots of folks are familiar with them in some fashion. The torque was sorta impressive for the super charged 3.8 but the motor in several articles didn't make a lot of top end power. For the Birds weight this helped it get up and moving.

Two wiki comments and versions of the Crown Vics in police trim.....


The CVPI came equipped with many heavy-duty parts, such as a revised transmission, and a 186 kW (253 PS; 249 hp) engine. Used versions are normally stripped of any police decals, equipment, police radios, and emergency lights before being sold or auctioned to the public.[2]

Further alterations were made in 2001, but most importantly, the CVPI now received the “Performance Improved” 4.6L 2V V8 engine as standard equipment.[3] It made 235 hp @4,750 RPM and 276 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM. In a corresponding move, the ECM was once again re-calibrated and the P71 sported a more powerful 135/82 amp alternator. Midway through the 2001 model year, the intake manifold was re-designed to include an aluminum thermostat housing, and the 3.55:1 rear differential was deleted in favor of a 3.27:1 unit

Thanks for that input @WARRIORWELDING I'm about 6 months before I can pull the trigger on a driver other than the 250. I love the 250 but would like to have something to make lowes runs or shop in Hartsville runs, 40 min drive, to keep the miles off the 250. I want a manual and really want an LJ 6 speed but they are pricey. This popped up and got me wondering and dreaming. Of course when the motor went out I'd Godzilla swap it.... ;)

I want a wood splitter but with the prices on FB I'd be better off to go get a new one and pay it off in 24 months for 0%.

1. This will be in @jeepinmatt ’s driveway by Friday.
2. The video shows it driving itself.
3. I expect a flamethrower mounted to the front and a new video by Saturday!
Now I want this just to add remote control via an Arduino and a cell phone.
