The Thunderbird SC (Super Coupe) was introduced in 1989 and won Motor Trend magazine's 'Car of the Year'. The new super sleek styling was just part of the deal, as the car sat on an all-new platform with A-arms up front and a full independent rear with pivoting axle halfshafts. The SC was a celebration of 35 years of the Thunderbird, and came with black wheel and paint. It also had beefier springs and gas shocks, plus four-wheel disc brakes which were vented at the front lo aid cooling. While T-birds of the past had used four cylinders, V6s or V8s, the new car was exclusively V6 powered, and the SC used an Eaton supercharger in conjunction with sequential fuel injection to boost output. Dual tailpipes was one way of telling the SC from regular Thunderbirds, along with the 7xl6-inch (178x406mm) alloys on 225/60 Goodyear Eagle tyres.
