Parting out 1987 Thunderbird Sport 5l


New member to this forum. I am a member of the TCCoA forum, but found not many owners of this model. I am in the process of transplanting the drivetrain from the subject vehicle into a 1973 Mustang. So, I joined this group so I can ask questions about the particulars of the 87, especially the harness and EFI stuff, that will be my first time attempting this.

So, I have these parts that I will not be using that I would like to go to a good home.  The car is in Fort Mohave, AZ, very near the Colorado river. I am using the engine, Trans, driveshaft, and wiring harness. Most the rest of the car is available. As an added benefit, I will be traveling on I40 at the first of September to Texas, so if something big is desired, and I40 isn’t a long trip fir you to make, we might be able to arrange an off ramp transaction.

Let me know what you need and I’ll get back to you. According to the previous owner, the car was well optioned, but does not have the original rims. Here are a few pics of what I’ve already removed (dash insert, instrument console, AC Heat unit, radiator with cowl) and I have a tilt wheel, nice hood, hinges, etc. PM me if you would like to talk.

Do you still have the instrument cluster? Do you know how many miles is on the odometer?  How much do you want for it?

I still have these parts if anyone is interested; today, the remains of the 87 TBird went to the salvage yard.
