A donor T-Bird could give the parts needed, most of those were 5-speed with Traction Lock 8'8" rear and 3.55 gears('87 & '88)... I looked for approx a year at the auctions to find one optioned with automatic that I used for my 5.0/AOD swap...

The late 2.3 with all the computer controls, DBW etc would be a nightmare... If a stand alone harness could be sourced most of the work would be fitment...
