    Very nice SC!

    The odometer is a pretty easy fix, just be careful pulling the trim around the cluster since it gets very brittle and cracks easily due to age. If I have to pull one, I will usually...

    I have seen photos of a supposed test mule that was a red fox body t-bird with the 3.8SC engine, plus there have been numerous SC engine swaps into fox bodies over the years, so it definitely fits.

    Not likely. Something fell on the car while it was stopped. There is no damage on any of the corners, and no airbags deployed, so the car had to be stopped with the key off when the damage occurred.
