    Deb's Tbird, a low volume color/options vehicle MIGHT bring a small premium but mileage and condition are going to count for much more.

    The Neiman's were the first 200 sold, but not the first 200 made.
    Very early builds are used by the company for test driving and for company employees and executives to drive, evaluate and for shows. Yours was built 6/6/2001 and there were 113 built before that date and 90 built on 6/6/2001... so yours could have been as early as the 114th or as late as the 203rd. I don't know of any way to narrow it down further than that. Since the actual build date is so difficult to pinpoint most people value the lowest VIN number higher. Cars are only approximately built in VIN order.

  4. Mahalo, for such great info. We’re thinking of selling this car and was wondering if there is anything special about it.

    There is something special about ALL Thunderbirds...
    The most unique item about yours would be the EXACT mileage, including tenths.
    Good luck marketing that unless it is extremely low.

  6. Thanks again slingshot great info. It would be cool to find out who drove and evaluated this particular car or if it was shown in the North American auto show in Detroit. Thanks again n God bless us EVERYONE.

  15. Thanks for that information actually very happy to know there are not that many of mine around only 534 is pretty cool to know. Thank you
  16. I just trailered home Wednesday a 2005 T-Bird 50th Anniversary that was willed to me by my Dad. I was humbled by his generosity. The car has 26,600-some miles on it - all original down to the tires. He had not driven it for easily 5+ years. Always garaged.

    The thing is loaded with electronics, all of which I think are standard, like 6-disc changer and the accessory that allows you to control garage door openers and home lighting (forget the Ford name for it). I am still trying to learn how to operate it all. Don't know a whole lot about the car yet, just glad it made the 650-mile trip OK.

    Black leather interior with silver door panel inserts
    Black convertible soft top
    Hardtop carrier
    Seat heaters
    Dual range HVAC controls
    Exterior: Dark silver, I'd call it.
    Spoked chrome wheels
    Dealer: Reynolds Ford, East Moline IL
    Delivery date: 7/22/2005
    VIN: 1FAHP60AX5Y101524

    I also wondered what the last VIN vehicle number was of 2005 production. I know that was the end of the line for T-Birds. Be neat to know where my car was in the production sequence. All help with dealer cost, production numbers and anything to look for as options, etc., is definitely appreciated! I plan to hang on to this for at least another 20 years (good Lord willing) and keep it low mileage. Then I can will it to someone else!

    Not sure where the delivery date you have came from.... there were 1,550 2005 Thunderbirds built before your 9/7/2004 build date, 55 Tbirds built the same day as yours, and there were 7690 Thunderbirds built after the day yours was built for a total of 9,295 of the 2005 Thunderbirds built. The highest VIN number and also the last built was 1FAHP60A75Y109337. Automobiles are not built in exact order of the VIN but this very last one went to the Ford family and the Wixom Assembly Plant made sure it was the last one off the line. Good luck with the car!! If you don't have the original sticker see note below.

  19. THANK YOU, QUICKDRAW! I'll be in touch for the window sticker, since I could find no sales docs with it, and that was disappointing. Not new to Fords, as I own a 1969 Fairlane coupe and a 1969 Ranchero. Interesting note, the car was towed home by my factory ordered 2001 F150 with Ford tow package (probably a 1 of 1 the way I ordered it) and 193,6XX on the clock at the start. The truck pulled like a dream and burned just 1/2 quart of oil for the 1,300 mile round trip.
  20. Thank you sir my vin is 1FAHP60A25Y107401.
