1969 F100 meets Police Interceptor (Thats the plan anyways....)
So i have purchsed a very nice 69 F100 SWB from the US and am planning on swapping the entire drivetrain and suspension (minus the rear axle, staying with the 9" and leafs) from a 2011 Crown Vic Interceptor with 63000km's on it. I may stay with the original 302 still but not sold on that yet. Heres what Im starting with...
So got the flu last couple days but am back at it now

I have always been of the mind set that the factory Steel cross members were ok with out a boxed frame because it could handle the twisting motion. But now with the Crown vics aluminum crossmember that was meant for a unibody style carwhich has alot less flex stiffening up the frame would be crucial so that the aluminum crossmember would not have to take as much twist.
