This is correct. Only the inner lights are different. I parted out a Sport model a few months ago and used the headlights for one of my cars because they were in better condition than the ones I had.

Thanks for the clarification, I thought I remembered it being that way but it was over 15 years ago when I bought/replaced all of the front lights on my 88 T/C. I also replaced the fog lights at that time, all told the 8 NOS parts ran me close to $1,000. Local Ford dealer located parts for me but I had to contact the different dealerships and arrange the purchase myself. One of the inner lights came from Larry Bird Ford, which was pretty cool to me as I live in New England and was a Boston Celtics fan. I believe I still have the box it came in as well as a Larry Bird dealership sticker the parts guy threw in for me.
1988 T/C Silver with red interior, fully loaded except for leather. 5 lug conversion with 97 Cobra wheels, Cobra 13" brakes up front, Mustang brakes out back, Koni adjustable shocks and struts, NOS Koni lowering springs . Maximum Motorsports control arms and caster/camber plates, subframe connectors.
SOLD September 2020. Will miss this car after 19 years of building/driving/showing....time for a new chapter in my life.

I was going to have the radiator clean out but when I pulled it out if felt like it weigh 100 pounds so I just tossed it in the trash and bought a new one. Car runs a lot cooler.

Ha. I had a lady friend who junked out her Toronado with only 73k on a 403. Grabbed the motor and put that sweet baby in my 79 Cutlass Supreme when the V6 finally went out. With a set of Hedman headers that car went really fast and phenomenal mpg since the engine barely had to work to get me to 70. I miss that car.
Publicity, fame and accolades can make a theory popular. They can't make it true.
