[MA] 8.8 Thunderbird IRS

::SOLD::

Selling a 8.8 IRS out of what I believe was a 94 Thunderbird SC with an auto tranny.

Complete subframe, pumpkin, half-shafts, disc brakes (Although the dust shields are trash), rear sway bar, etc. The rear shocks were cut and it’s got rust as it came out of a New England car, but the assembly itself is very solid and should clean up nicely. I was planning on using it for a project of mine, but as that has fallen though it’s up for sale.


Looking to get $125 for it. Located on the South Shore in MA.


I’ll post up pictures in the next day or two when I get a chance.

Sorry about the delay, but here's pictures.

I was planning on disassembling the entire subframe, media blasting, and then painting or powdercoating it along with installing new bushings and whatnot, but plans have changes so it's being sold as is.

I actually had someone ask me this on another forum. Where is the tag on the pumpkin so I can check? I bought this used from another member so I'm not too sure myself. I was planning on opening it up and changing the gears but never got around to it.

If its indeed from a 94 auto and original, its an open.

Bump.

Tag on the cover is gone, and I don't feel like cracking open the diff, so I'm assuming that it's an open rear.

Even though it was a supercoupe, I have my suspicion it could be trac-loc, but could me open too. What happens when you try to turn one rotor, is it easy and the other tire turns backwards, or a little hard and both tires turn the same direction?

Sorry about the delay in responding, but I wasn't able to turn either rotor as it appears that the calipers have a pretty good grip on the rotors due to sitting for awhile.

Assume that it's an open, and be in for a pleasant surprise if it's actually a trac-loc.
