a 96 rear bumper should work as well, they are the same.

96/7 work no problem doesnt matter v-6 or 8, but honestly i think you can get any mn12 rear bumper to work, its just that the body lines dont match up.

casper has a 96/7 body, with a 94/5 sc back bumper and it looks pretty good, but if you really care, the body lines dont match up (the side molding with the back bumper)

Not sure if this helps...

but i have a 94 with a '92 SC kit.... i think that all years can interchange bumpers. Just that some of the mouldings won't match exactly. You can barely tell on mine since it's all painted to match exactly

yea, but the 94 doesn't have big fat lower cladding.. it'd probably be more noticable on a 96/97

Casper,

Any close ups of the rear bumper? Nice job! It's a 94/95 SC cover, right? Just wondering, was there a lot of work involved removing the SC and centering the Thunderbird?

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