Parts for

83 Through 88 Thunderbirds

I am just getting into the later model parts cars so the selection is still fairly small. I realize there is and will continue to be a growing demand for these as most salvage yards crush these older (late model) cars.

I am currently interested in purchasing parts cars of any year and batches of used parts that are left over from someone else dismantling one. I cannot afford to travel too far to get these however so I usually limit my self to somewhere within 300 miles depending on how good of a deal it is and what it takes for me to get it.

I currently have the following parts cars:

1983 plain jane red with red interior, 5.0 liter engine with automatic on column body is rusty and front end is poor condition

1985 with digital dash blue outside and blue inside interior is really nice velour with bucket seats. It has a V6 and automatic on column. Front end collision damaged most front end components and probably engine. Had a new gas tank with a dent and also a new fuel pump in the gas tank. Tail light assemblies are excellent

1986 plain jane with digital dash. V6 with auto on column, bucket seats but fairly ratty interior. Most sheet metal is good. It runs yet but very high miles. It is white exterior with bluish gray interior that is ratty also. Has lots of good parts that will need to be cleaned up.

I also have many parts for these model years that I have purchased from individuals who have salvaged them from parted out cars. Below is a partial list-----------------------
