1996 T-Bird (Sport?) FS in AZ

1996 Ford Thunderbird | eBay

It seems the MN-12's come to Ebay in waves. Maybe cause it's Spring.

Here we have a nice low mileage example, overpriced as always. I am not an expert on what makes it a Sport, but this one has Sport wheels and springs.

Overpriced, yes. Because it is in near mint condition and with real low miles though, I'd pay somewhere around $5k for it.

Door jam sticker also has the JJJJ code for the springs!

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Darren, about a year ago I would have been interested. I picked up a low mileage '97 in Oct 2015 and sold my '95.

I got in the habit of shopping for them, and can't quit the habit! I like seeing that there are nice examples still out there.

I also shop for '69 Roadrunners, but have no intention of buying one. No room in the stable!

Are the JJJJ springs better than the SC springs? I seem to recall finding a springs code breakout on either this site or SCCOA and for the life of me can't find it again.
