i'll try to get that. would putting up a pic of the front of the car help at all? because im pretty sure it has the right front clip for a 88, but i know that you can change that pretty easily...

i asked him if he was sure it was a 88 because it had the 86 taillights and i'm waiting for a response from him. i'm really hoping its a 88 because its a pretty good deal and my neighbor, who has been a mechanic for pretty much his whole life and owns a couple foxbodies, said that the 88-93 engines were the best engines for the foxbodies.

heres the pic of the front anyways.

its definitely a coupe the thing thats throwing me off though is the 86 taillights because he said in his posting that it is a 88. i emailed him asking for the vin number so i can run that to figure out what year it is.
