96 T-bird LX: Parting out

I have a 96 LX I'm parting out as it needs a ton of front-end work among some other work and it just isn't worth it to keep.

It is a 3.8L auto. Exterior is white, interior is green. It does have a 97 console with cup holders and I installed a cigarette lighter in the console so you don't need the ashtray/cigarette lighter combo from the 97.

Let me know if you're looking for anything and offer up a price.

I just copied and pasted this from another thread to make it easier:

Looking for some parts at a reasonable price, no scrape yards around here seem to have any T-birds .

1996-97 T-bird - Front corner lights.

1996-97 T-bird - Hood release slider bar

To fit 95 T-bird - Parking brake adjuster cable for rear disk brakes. Pic below for reference.


To fit 95 T-bird - Rear disk brake dust shields, reg size brakes. Surface rust is ok, but no holes or extreme rust areas.

Thanks
-Dave

1995 T-bird 4.6l - Eibach lowering springs, Cobra R hood, One 12" sub woofer, Alpine type-R front speakers. 16.249 @85.11mph 1/4 mile
2001 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 - Cam, headers, HPtuned by me.

Hi Dave,

If the brake parts from the '96 will fit on your '95, I should have everything you need. Let me know before I start taking everything apart.

Do you have a timeline for how soon you need the parts? I'm hoping to get a few requests for parts at a time since the car is not at my house, I have to drive about 20 minutes to go take parts off it. I'd like the make as few trips as possible.

no no...by front end i mean it needs steering/suspension work. the front end of the body is in good shape, aside from the paint flaking off the bumper in a few places.

the header panel is kinda big, it might be hard to ship. let me find out and get back to you.

Any pics of how you installed the cigarette lighter in the console? If it looks good and OEM-passable, I'd be interested..

sure. i'll go over to where the car is tomorrow after work and take a couple pics. i'm very anal about how the interior of my cars look, so it definitely looks almost factory.

How are the rear LED tail lights? Does the car have the auto antenna assembly?

as far as i know, the tail lights are good. i'll check for you. it does have the auto antenna, but the antenna broke off a couple years ago. i never got around to replacing it as i listen to sirius all the time.
