Hi Everyone. Some of the old timers will remember me, I was a very active member from 2005 - 2011. Been a while since I have a tbird, but hoping maybe that'll change again in the near future.
Does anyone know the thread size for the sport seats in the Turbo Coupes? I'm looking to mount one, and I can't find the bolts, but I also can't bring the entire seat into a hardware store to match it up.
I have a set of blue ones out of an 87 and I think a set of grey ones. I can get pictures for you. The blue ones were mint when I put them in storage. I'll look tonight. I may have to wipe some dust off of them, but I bought them cheap, and I'd sell them for what I paid + shipping. Send me a PM if interested.
If you turned around tomorrow and wanted to sell it, even to a Fox Body T-Bird enthusiast, you'd be hard pressed to get that kind of money. I've been on this forum for a decade (my first car was an 88 T-bird 3.8l), and what I've learned is, unless heavily modified, $5000 Fox body t-birds don't sell very quickly.
With that being said, the 3.8l motor is 88 is an absolute piece of garbage. If you drive that car, it will sooner rather than later need a head gasket. Most of us swapped in 5.0l motors out of other T-birds or mustangs. I wouldn't buy a 3.8l car with the intent of driving it long with the 3.8. You might get a year out of it, or two, or a day. It's really a roll of the dice.

Mine came out of a barn last year with more problems than a math book but through Frustration, Aggravation, determination, and the help of the people on this Forum we succeeded in building a sweet car. I have seen these cars priced over $10,000 I would not sell mine for less than $5000.
Price and what the actually sell for, or the owner gives up and keeps it are vastly different things.
