83 to 88 T bird owners

Question on the deck lid. Are they the same on the T birds except for the license plate cutout? I am looking at one for my 86 and they show one for 88 and it appears the same in all points with the exception of the cutout.

Anyone know for sure???

I don't know for sure but I think the 87-88 ones are diff, they don't look as long from the lip down to the bottom of the lid. I'm pretty sure all the panels are unique.

Definitely different.

Pic of my 87 on the left and a 83 and 84 on the right. The front part of the decklid near the base of the window is shaped different as well.

Thanks all,the pics answer my question. My 86 is the same as the 83-84 in the pics. I was thinking of getting the one that Harold has, but its different.
