1969 F100 meets Police Interceptor (Thats the plan anyways....)

Hi All,

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...

Pulled the front clip off...

pulled the engine and tranny...

removed the box....

Lowered the rear end with a front shackle mount flip....

Removed the front coils and set the ride height. Ready to start measuring and cutting out the original x-member to make room for the CV front end.

You might check out some other build threads where they attacked the evil rust Demon. Use the search engine top of this page. I think it is 67nuke that really dove head 1st in to his.

Here is where my Centerline ended up. Not too sure if thats right, haha but it looks great holding the fender up

IFS drilled and bolts just set in

[IMG] photo 010_zpsfaf49749.jpg[/IMG]

Then got down to fitting the sleeves in. Used 5/8" ID thick walled tubing and filled the rivet holes in

It is out of my league to know if it's necessarybut, you gonna box in the frame? Seems like I've seen other threads and they did. I am assuming for dipping in to corners hot and heavy?

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.
