    Default Lincoln Town Car JBL Sound System

    I'm looking for a complete JBL sound system out of an '86 or '87 Lincoln Town Car. This set up came with a head unit almost identical to the Ford Premium sound system found in '86 and '87 Vics and Marquis. The difference would be the color of the head unit. The JBL system has a gray face instead of the black face found in the cars not equipped with JBL. Not all town cars got it, it's an option.
    The head unit looks like this but gray


    It also says JBL in the bottom right corner. I'm looking for the head unit, the wiring harness, the complete harness, speakers, and the amp. If the speakers are bad I'll settle for just the other stuff.

    Thats the radio. These were also found in the Mark VII.

    http://thelincolnmarkviiclub.org/Gallery/album60?page=1 has some pics of the other radios along with shots of the back so you can get an idea of what the connectors look like.

    fishing the cable out from HU to amplifier is kinda crappy, but the rest is not hard at all. Its more time consuming than difficult to pull the cable though.

    rear speakers are 3 way speakers actually. I think the dash and door are just single speakers, so it should come out to 13.
