89-92: base and LX = black strip on bottom, no LEDs
SC = all red with LEDs

94-95: base and LX = black strip on bottom with LEDs
SC = all red with LEDs

96-97: all red with LEDs.

Correction:
89-91 base models and LX's had the black strip on the bottom, the Super Coupes were all red - but neither had LED's. It was just a reflector panel on both.

93-95 LX's had the black strip on the bottom with LED's, the Super Coupes were all red

96/97's were all red.

so would the super coupe trunk be different or can I just pick up a set of SC lights and bolt them up to my 93 LX?

Thanks in advance for the help

Okay, I was misinformed. The early SC's did not have LEDs.
As to me putting 94-95 instead of 93-95, that was a mistype.:tongue:

I notice that you left out the 92's the same way that I left out the 93's.:D

One think to watch for is the 97' cornerlights have an extra plastic "location prong" sticking out of them that needs to be cut off to fit 92-96 models.

So it goes.

89-91 LX- Non LED, but reflected tails, with a black strip on the bottom with Thunderbird LX (or just Thunderbird or Sport in script) on the strip.

89-91 SC- Non LED, but reflected tails that are all red. (Thunderbird SC is on the bumper)

92-95 LX- LED'ed tails with black strip and Thunderbird LX on the strip.

92-95 SC- LED'ed tails that are all red (Thunderbird SC on bumper).

96 LX- Same as 92-95 SC's

97 LX- Sames as 96's but with an extra clip.

NOTE: The 92+ trunks got a slight redisgn, the tails have a curve in them and there is nothing between the liscene plate and metal on the trunk lid.

I've read in other threads here, that the 96-97 all red lights are a different red than the earlier SC tails. Can someone verify this?

the 93-95 SC led lights are the same as the 96 LX lights nothing different

the 97 led lights have a different red tint to them they are more orangish if you will. they also seem to last a heck of alot longer then the previous years. i cant tell you the last time i saw a 97 with LED's that were out.

I have 94 SC centers (with all the LED's working) and 97' Corners on my 96' they look the same color red to me. :confused:

put a 97 light on one side and and one of these (92-95 sc or 96 or to judge color put any 92-95lx) put one of thoes on the other side, and take a look at the different shade. the 97 is more orangeish vs the deeper red of the previous years.

has nothing to do with the corner light lenses.
