    Default 1985 svo turbo in a 1984 ltd ii wagon

    New to this forum: I just purchased a 1984 LTD II wagon (roller). I have a 1985 SVO with good running gear but the body is a rust bucket and past the point of no return. I'm thinking of using everything from the dash forward (dash, wiring, pedals, trans, engine, etc.) from the SVO and turning the wagon into a LTD/SVO. Ideas and suggestions anyone?

    EDIT. I kept thinking...man that looks familiar until you said it. If also appears to have a lot of decal residue left on it too. Plus the windshield banner matches this one EXACTLY. I guess it is a MAC car

    My car is an 85. I believe the Mac car was an 84.The 85 is a 9L white car but the front frame rails are completely rusted thru along with rust in many more places.

    FYI - Mark Haas has both Mac Tool SVO's so this one was a fake....

    Go for it, a turbo wagon would be cool....

    Does the wagon have green interior? If so, i'd love to see some pics of it!

    Also, project sounds sweet! Can't wait to follow it!

    It has blue guts and they are almost sun faded to light gray. Lol. I'm planning to change to Dark Charcoal like SVO.

    Just a quick FYI--the "small" or "baby" LTDs (or "not the LTD Crown Victoria") are NOT LTD II. The LTD II was a 1970s beast from before the Fox era.
    I wanted to point that out before any of the more zealous LTD folks stopped by.

    As for the project--go for it! A 2.3T/5-speed wagon sounds like a great, fun driver!
