    Default 84 TC owner - what to pull from 89 TC parts car?

    Hi,
    new 1984 Town Car base model owner.

    Ill visit a guy who has a 89 TC for parts next week. Since Im in Germany this is a lucky find.


    Any advice on what to pull (except for the stuff I had already on my list)?

    Not want to learn afterwards Id better pulled some hard to find stuff.


    Thank you.

    Any lens assemblies that are in good shape if they are the same style as yours. I don't remember what year the TC went from the pointed lenses to the rounded ones. Though, that can be changed by pulling the entire header panel if one piece or just the corners if both are 3 piece header panels.
    Dashpad if in good shape or better shape than yours.
    Glove box door (mainly for the latch as they like to break if you aren't real nice with them).
    Anything interior that you want a spare of. Seats, door panels, etc.
    Power antenna.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Good one on the lenses. Didnt think of it. Dunno if theyll fit since 84 is pointy and 89 rounded.
    All the other stuff you mentioned is already on the list

    Interior is wrong color :-(

    EFI would be nice, but I dont really want to deal with a conversion (-yet).

    had a feeling that might have been it.
