    Default Is my car a real član?

    My '85 T-Bird has the član emblem on the decklid, but not on the lower bodyside trim. The only exterior options are alloy wheels, wide body side molding, pass. side mirror, and the luggage rack on the decklid. Inside it has power mirrors and windows, A/C, rear window defrost, and full console.
    It has the base radio, base climate control, base seats, no cruise, no power locks, and 2 speed wipers.
    I was told back when I bought the car that it was a Ford "program" car for 3 years. Could that be why it has the član name, but not many of the član options?

    Door panels & seats are usually the giveaway.

    Mine has basic cloth bucket seats and vinyl/cloth door panels. I bought it from the guy that bought it when Ford retired it as a program car in '88. He had it from the spring of '88 to fall of this year. Could he have put an član emblem of the trunk at some point?
    Also, is there any way of telling based on the VIN?

    Can not tell from the VIN or data plate. The only way to know is to order the Marti report.

    I don't think so? Do you have a picture of the buck tag? FoxChassis is an expert in this area, maybe if you chant 'foxchassis' three times he will appear. :-)
