Default Will T-4 bodies fit on a T-3?

Does anyone know or have you tried fitting a T4 body onto a T3? Specifically the JConcepts Illuzion body. Pardon my saying so but the ProLine Bulldog is one butt ugly body.

Thank you in advance if anyone can answer this for me.

Tower had it in stock last time I was lid shopping and AE is where I bought one a year ago for a shelf queen. The T4 lid doesn't fit it well.

BTW, the current Thunder Tiger stadium truck IS the old T3. Not sure if there is a clear lid for it though.

Thank you!

I'd REALLY like to find Proline's 97 F150 for the T3. DAMB good lookin' body.

As far as the T4 body, it fits just not very well? Do you mean hard to secure to the car, are the wheel bases too different or what?

Mainly shock tower clearance and yes, the T3 lid rear mount is at the rear shock tower. You'd need to accommodate for that.

I tried it, wasn't pretty.

I do remember a company that was still making lids for the T3 that made mostly oval stuff. McMaster?

Thank you guys very much for the info. McAllister does indeed have a decent looking body for the T3 at a reasonable price.
