I'm looking for a back glass for my 94 SC. Needs to have rear window defrost. I have a 95 XR7 with many good parts that I'd be willing to trade for. Engine and tranny are gone, radiator is gone. If you have a back glass and want to trade, let me know what you are looking for. It would help if I didn't have to drive over 200 miles to pick up the back glass but I do travel from Alabama to Michigan frequently so I COULD pick up/deliver along the way...
 
It's so difficult to get windows out that you might be better of having Safelite install a new one. They show they can do them for $400 for the heated model.

Welcome to owning a near classic. Just booked my windshield from them as no one else can get them.

Thanks man. I've considered that route. I have a bit of metalwork that needs fixing just above the deck lid. If it were anything other than a 5-speed SC, I'd just cover it over with Duraglass since it's such a tiny spot. I might have to take it to a collision shop to fix it. If no metalwork were required, I'd have had Safelite fix it already. I'll find a low-dollar T-bird somewhere. I'm currently trying to get in touch with an owner who is selling one cheap with a slipping transmission. I also need other parts. Just figured I'd put a notice out here in case someone had one they wanted to get rid of.

I'm not new to owning a "near classic". I currently have 4 Thunderbirds on the property. I've had the SC since 2002.
 
 
I've seen a bunch of fords in the yards with engine fores, from disintegrating o-rings on the injectors. Ford reengineered them, and now they are blue and green, made of a material more resistant to alcohol. The change in gas in 92 used an additive that was toxic, so alcohol was used instead. Alcohol eats buna-n rubber, so fires.
If you dink with injectors, get the right orings, and change them out.

https://theinjectorshop.com/ IIRC, green on top, blue on bottom, but check. None deals with liquid, one with vapor, so different.
A #10 machine screw removes the filters fairly easily, they won't be reusable, lol. All the ones I refurbed were full of black slime from the fuel lines. :(
The green tops I bought that had been on several member's cars,were so clogged they barely flowed. It's a wonder they didn't eat an engine.
They don't know that a 96 bird came with a 4.6, so skip the car lookup, lol.
