Differences include the tonneau cover as the after market
covers just don't fit which you would see in a side by side comparison. The roadster badges which appear on the front fenders and on the tonneau cover between the seats. the Sports Roadsters had a passenger grab bar which no other T-Bird had. A decal in the center console glove box that informs that the power seats have been disconnected to avoid the seat back from hitting the tonneau cover. Cars equiped with the Kelsey Hayes wire wheel, which were standard on the Sports Roadster, had a fender skirt delete as the wire wheels would not fit inside the skirts. After market wire wheels had a different offset and would fit but become a deduction in T-Bird judged events.
