Yes, fender skirts were an option. If you have the skirt pins installed then it came with skirts. If not, then it didn't.

The cruise-o-matics used on Thunderbirds were MX not FX. The C6 bell housing will bolt up fine. The linkage should not be a major issue. The transmission mount will need some modification though.

Thanks for the response, Like Ive said my folks bot this bird when I was just a young teen. I dont remember skirts on it but was not sure .

Probably going to go with the C6 simply becuase they are easier to install
I remember trying to Fight the FX style on to the converter

Im sure Ill have a million more questions aftre i get it back from the Beauty shop and start trying to get it all back together.

Make sure you match the flex plate with the starter for any given trans.
