97 t bird


Registered User
Just had a 97 t bird show up at my local junk yard.

I have a 91 and need some donor parts. Is there anything on a 97 that would be an upgrade that I should commandeer of this car before its crushed?

Am I correct in assuming that I can use the rear glass off any mn12?

Thanks guys,

rear glass has the same stupid purple tint that mine does but not as bad. They want 75 pulled but I was hoping to avoid taking off bad tint.

Is the master cylinder off this car worth anything if I wanted to go to conventional brakes?

Gas tank work for true duals? What would I need, tank straps, shield?

Trunk had spoiler on it so ill pass on it but will grab the lights and corners in case someone wants.

Good evening

Take a good overall look at your car. Have parts in need of replacing? Replacing old parts with new is the way to go. But sometime the resources are not available (money and or time). This is a small sample of parts I look for in 96-97 thunderbirds at the u-pull-it salvage yards. Carefully inspect before removing.
