Just post an ad saying that it came out of a 1994 Thunderbird. Because it did. Even if it was originally installed in something else, you pulled it out of a 1994 Thunderbird. That's honest.

There's not some bit of info that you're going to find that'll suddenly make it more desirable. It's a 15+ year old V6, that you're trying to sell in a market that is limited by the number of people who are trying to keep vehicles running that might still use that motor. It's going to be worth a couple hundred bucks, tops, no matter how you slice it. Sorry dude. Best to limit the amount of time that you spend on it between now and the time that someone else hauls it away - time is money, after all.

Cobalt's link just happened to have a pic of a 1994 Thunderbird installation:

Is that what yours looks like? Yes? Then it's stock.
