1988 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe

This 72k mile Turbo Coupe is optioned out and in excellent condition. It's all original except for:
-K&N Cone Filter-Gillis Boost Valve-Pioneer Bluetooth Headunit with hands-free calling-Chrome exhaust tip-'93 Cobra R Wheels and Nitto 555 tires with less than 1k miles (245 front / 275 rear)-Upgraded intercooler couplers-Digital Boost Gauge
Notable options include:

I purchased this car from the son of the original owner. I have all the service records back to 1988, as well as the original window sticker and sales receipt. This car has been pampered its entire life. Some notable recent service records:
November 2017:-Brake Pads
August 2017:-New Battery
October 2014:-Alignment
September 2014:-Timing Belt-Cap and Rotor-Ignition Wires-Spark Plugs-Coolant Flush-Serpentine Belts / Tensioner
August 2010:-A/C Evacuate and Recharge / R34 Retrofit / New O-rings
February 2010:-New Exhaust
The car is mechanically sound. It starts, runs, drives, and stops like it should.
Cosmetically, the car isn't perfect, but it is close. There are minor rust bubbles forming behind the left front and rear wheel wells, and around the right rear wheel well. I have painted these areas to stop the rust from progessing and they are inconspicuous. There are also two dime-sized dings - one near the driver's side door handle and another on the driver's side rear fender. Other than that, the exterior is in excellent condition. All the body panels are straight with no indication of anything being repainted.
As far as the interior, the only flaw is a nickel-sized tear on the driver's seat where the bottom meets the back of the seat. The rest of the interior looks basically brand new including a crack-free dash. I also swapped out the equalizer for a storage slot above the radio.
If you are looking for an unmolested Turbo Coupe, this is it. This is the third Turbo Coupe I've owned. I bought it to put a T3 turbo on and a 5-speed, but I just can't bring myself to do it to such a good car.
