64 galaxie 500XL frame swap w 96 Lincoln Town Car
Anyone frame swapped a 64 galaxie XL w a
96 Lincoln Town Car? I'm about to begin.
Wheel base is a near match within an inch or
so... And the low profile air ride geometries
will help. Having owned a couple of town
cars I can say both would dust my crown
vics and easily cruise 115 on the tollway.. or
pull a 5000 lb trailer w ease.. on paper the
specs are similar.. but the tc is far more
powerful and stable. So..my question.. any
advice on making this swap go well?.. I
mean.. what could go wrong? Haha..
Do you have a lot of money? I would not attempt this unless I had 30 or 40 grand to play with.
I'm not hiring a 100$ per hour shop for the swap nor is it a restomod so no big spend.. .. and yeah my friends hire theirs out at hourly shops nn spend 30k. but this will probably go patina rat driver.. And.. its a galaxie.. I'm into for 300$ and the low mileage great running Lincoln Town car set me back 100$.. my son and I will do the swap.. 12 chassis bolts, wiring, brakes n ac deciding to keep old firewall and dash or tfer Lincoln firewall dash and floor is currently a thought as I see crown Vic dash n firewall tfers...
Good luck building your death machine.
the guy w the xke pic knows death machines at least when the Lucas wiring and carbs allow her to run on all 6..right? ;)
Runs all the time. 20 years without a problem.
They are cool. Have a friend who let his 70 go a few years back.. My xj6 I bought new was much later after Ford was involved.. was lovely but was constantly committing suicide
