Based on the door jamb code it's likely also a Sport. Sport was a factory option, LE was a dealer add-on - so you can have an LE car of just about any flavor (V6, V8 etc.).I wonder if the LEs came with the spoiler or is it a Sport as well?
The fact that the spring code is JJJJ makes it a SportI've never seen an LE without the spoiler, but that doesn't mean they're sports. The dealers who applied the stripes, floor mats and badging either also added the spoilers(they are prepainted from the parts department) or they were special ordered with the spoiler, with or without the sport package(or even V8), from the factory, which seems most likely. Most non-sport LEs I see have the chrome plated fanblades as well.
I want one, but every Mustang GT I would want to buy is out of my price range. People are proud of them for some reason."She's not so bad man, she's got what, you know, some paint and, you know some fiberglass, yes indeedy!"
Honestly, I'm surprised you haven't replaced your 96 with a newer Mustang yet?
The Thunderbird is in my opinion a superior car.I want one, but every Mustang GT I would want to buy is out of my price range. People are proud of them for some reason.
