For sale in our Detroit showroom is this gorgeous cream white 1978 Ford Thunderbird Diamond Jubilee Edition. When thinking of the Thunderbird, two words should come to mind: performance and luxury. This seventh-generation Thunderbird is known as the "basket handle" Bird referring to its unique roof treatment and was the best-selling T-Bird line of all time. In 1978, Ford offered the "Diamond Jubilee Edition" Thunderbird to commemorate the companys 75th year as an auto manufacturer. This option package escalated the price of the car to almost $12,000 (USD), virtually doubling the base price. Lighter than its predecessors, this Bird is powered by 351 cubic-inch, 5.8 liter "Windsor" V-8, providing around 135 horsepower along with 245 foot-ponds of torque, which really helps get this Bird into motion despite being a mid-sized car. With the 1979s "bird beak" style front grille work and bumper, this car projects high-style and that helped make it so popular. On the inside youll find warm tan carpet and tan cloth seats which are so comfortable youd think you were sitting in an easy chair. It is fully equipped with options such as automatic transmission, A/C and heater, AM/FM radio with cassette player, plus cruise control. This is a fine driver-quality luxury car, waiting to take you to cruises, car shows or a even a trip to the grocery store in style. Other great options on this Thunderbird include power locks, power seats, power windows, carpeted trunk and tilt wheel.

Our Detroit Showroom opened its doors in June of 2013 and is the fourth addition to Gateway Classic Cars. Detroit has been dubbed as the "Motor City Capital of the World" and has earned that title by being home base for American automobile manufacturers such as General Motors, Ford Motor Company and Dodge/Chrysler. Detroit is also home to the largest automotive gathering in the world, The Woodward Dream Cruise which is hosted annually on the 3rd weekend of August.
Our Detroit Showroom is located in historic "Ford Country" just footsteps from the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters building and a short drive to the General Motors World Headquarters located in the Renaissance Building in Downtown Detroit. Henry Ford once roamed these streets with Model T's, the Dodge brothers raced their way around city roads and extinct companies like Oldsmobile and Pontiac have left us fossils reminding us of the greatest era in automotive history, the muscle car era.
