    WS6 was no longer an option on Formulas after '00 AFAIK. Prior to that, the equipment content of the WS6 option was exactly the same whether it was on a Formula or T/A. HOWEVER, the 1LE option (which required WS6 and M6 too) was only available on the Formula, NOT the T/A. So a 1LE-WS6 Formula would have more "extra equipment" than a WS6 T/A (although I believe 1LE also deleted some convienience options like power windows, leather and alarm). So it's a give-and-take sort of thing w/ 1LE.

    you sure t-top and leather is standard on T/As?

    dont forget about the front bumper guys. the Formulas have the same front bumper as the sixers.
