        HI JERRY
        the differences of the deluxe vs premium on an 03 is the lack of traction control and seat heaters. if i am not mistaken the deluxe was available with the black accent pkg and possibly the partial accent (with hardtop only).
        hope this helps

          Difference between deluxe and premium 03s:

          1 - the wheels
          2 - premium only had the heated seats

          ALL of the 03s had traction control.

            Congratulation Jerry

            Have you run a "CarFax" on the car ?

            If you have not PLEASE DO IT. It cost $ 20.00 but it is worth every penny.

            You can obtain it in the following:

            Please let me know if I can help

                Tom,

                According to the 2003 brochure, the differences are the premium has chrome wheels and heated driver and passenger seat. Traction control is standard on both. The optional part or full color interior is available with the hardtop only on both deluxe and premium. Those are the only differences listed in the brochure.

                  Jerry,
                  As I'm sure you know, 02's have less horsepower than the 03's and 04's.

                    Jerry: There's an '03 Premium, leftover, here on the outskirts of Boston for $32,000 with 0 miles on it. Of course it's probably too far away. But maybe worth shopping more.

                        Local dealer had an ad in the paper awhile back for a 03 new for $29,000. Was in about a week ago and it is still in the showroom. Black W/White top. I know they have had it since August as they had it at the fair.

                          Which dealer?
                          I checked inventory, on www.fordvehicles.com, at 10 dealers, within a 25 mile radius of Wellington, OH, and no 2003's are shown. In fact, all 10 dealers have only 5 or 6 new Thunderbirds.
                          I can't understand how a dealer can sell a new 2003 premium with hardtop ( "black w/white top" ) for $3,000 less than cost ( invoice minus dealer incentive minus dealer holdback )?
                          Are you sure this wasn't one of those ads that says "with $???? down-cash or trade", in fine print?
