Welcome back to T-Birds. Sounds like She had a fender bender.
I am not 100% sure but I thought I saw a mid 80's Thunderbird at the Pennsburg U-Pull-it
a few weeks ago. I was there scavenging the many 89-94 parts, a 35th that I pillaged and I thought I saw one. Problem is I do not remember the exact year or condition.
I plan to be back there in a week, if I do I will look.
A good search engine I like to use is Car-Part.com
. It comes in handy.
All you need to do is find a junk yard that has one. Chances are as long as She does not have front end damage you will get your part.
