Junk torque converters

I had the tranny rebuilt in the '94 and installed a Mark VIII TC I bought from Jordan. Now I have the old stock TC and was wondering what to do with it besides using it for a boat anchor. Any of the aftermarket manufactures looking for them?

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

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.

They are kind of fun if you can find a big hill. Something that heavy can do some serious damage to things when it hits them.

My shipping was UPS, but I'm only 3 hrs away from Dan.

Just an idea, call your local Ford dealership and see if they can do anything about it.
