I just picked up a 1996 4.6L the other day (in addition to my 93 LWB). I can't seem to figure out which wheels I have. I am pretty sure they aren't original to 1996, they are 18s. Which turn signals and tail lights do I have? How hard it is too find the later model headlights (2001-2002?), and are they are direct replacement of the early ones?

Your wheels are "Comets" I think which were fitted to the last of the P38s, your rear lights appear to be year 2000 on clear one's. Headlights look like early ones so proably original.

Super, thank you for the insight! Got the truck cheap, on the account that the owner says it needs a motor. I still runs, but not very well. I am going to pull it in soon and check it out. From what I read it may be a crank sensor. Other then that it is in really nice shape, no rips in the leather, it already has the coil conversion as well.

Now I just need to get those updated headlights `) The turns I have now are they from the later model p38 as well?

Looks like you have the later door mouldings with the chrome inserts as well, unless it's a trick of the light.

Yup, i like the late model turn lights more than the all clear ones. Exterior wise it seems to be the only thing you are missing. And painting the side mirrors and bottom sections of the front bumper. I would just paint the while front a rear bumper and go for the westheimer look

Yea they have the chrome on the side moldings. So that is later model only as well? This is great, all the goodies.

What you need now are some of the chrome interior parts from the later model, door handles, speaker surrounds etc. adds a nice touch in my opinion. Unless of course it has already had them fitted.

Depends - you can get aftermarket chrome strips to insert to make it look like the later models. The genuine chrome strips are wider than the after market ones.

Someone pin striped the chrome on the moldings. Doesn't look that bad...

On the motor bit...just as expected. Torque converter bolt backed out and bent the crank sensor and some tang on the reluctor wheel. Just in the middle of bending everything back to the right shape `8)

as a bit of an update...

We took it away for the weekend, and it's about 250 miles one way. It started stumbling on the trip, and got progressively worse to the point we had to keep the revs up over 3200rpm to drive it. It definitely felt like an ignition stumble, so we figured the CPS was sending a 'fuzzy' signal as it got hot because of the damage, so we swapped it with a new one and the truck seems to be 100%. BIG difference all around with the new sensor, so we're psyched. We'll find out for sure on the way home... fingers crossed. Truck is absolutely awesome, and can't wait to fix the climate this week when we get home! It's SO different than our LWB County it's incredible... but I still love my Classic :)
