Soo...Question about the sport model.

Why are they so hard to find? I never see anybody else with a Thunderbird Sport. And what exactly is different about mine from an LX? I never understood it.

thats the 96/7 one


the early versions are stripped of options base models, all had 5.0's, no abs, rear drums, they had the LX/SC bumper and LX side mouldings, but with a stripe going parallel with the lower body line and the emblem on the tails. plus spring/shock upgrades and other misc. things.

this for the 92 btw, the 91 is a little different with the exterior and interior.

Thanks for the link.

And FYI my T-Bird DID have abs, but we swapped it out.
