Most insurance company's say that all Tbirds are SVT's

SO how are they pulling a fast one? And they are just parting it out, The winner gets whatever is left.

huh, say what?
When did that happen that they were refered to as 'svt' by the insurance industry?
The svt birds were never produced for consumer consumption. Although a few of the 7 made managed to escape the scrap heap, those few cars did not cause all thunderbirds to be labeled as 'SVT Tutelaged Vehicles'.

If Ford had continued the thunderbird into 1998 then we might have seen them but because they didn't then it isn't.

I don't mean to grouse, but accuracy counts especially when selling something.

my insurance company does not list my car as an SVT, nothing on the card, nothing in the computer, i even asked and they showed me. I have Allstate, BTW.

that guy is a member of this site. I believe he bought another t-bird and his parents sued that one, then it was backed into by someone.

and anyway, that rear tire seems to not be straight.. like its bent inwards toward the back. so possibly new control arms, halfshaft, bushings, and sway bar might be needed... -greg

just because it's a parts car doesn't mean it can't be restored. Could be a fun project.

I think quite a few ppl here have their birds listed as SVT's thru their insurance company's if my memory serves me. I dunno, there was a thread on it a while back...

The insurance company I was with before my current one (GMAC) had the car listed as an LX and they wanted about $1700 for 6 months of full coverage. I have one speeding ticket on my record from about 2 years ago. I had their plan for about a year and a half and the rate was going up $300-400 every 6 months, so when they wanted $1700, I got rid of 'em asap. The company Im with now lists the car as an ""LX/SVT" (maybe because its a sport?) and a FULL YEAR with the same coverage and deductables is about $2200. Id say I was getting screwed over...now Im just getting ripped off :D
