Are there any parts interchangeable with a Mustang or other Ford other than the drivetrain? I think up to 88 was a Fox body but what is the 89-97?

I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

Also older FORD Special Service Tools

So I guess it is a different animal!

Thanks!

I did find this site that was cool.

A much improved animal. When you have a chance, study the front suspension, the later IRS and the 4.6L (early still had 5.0L). The MARKV III is on an extended MN-12 platform. Beautiful automobile.

Correct, 89-97 Tbird, Cougar and 93-98 Mark VIII are mostly interchangable. With the Mark, you may need to swap a bunch if you do it, since most of the body panels are unique, but as a group, will swap.

Ford really screwed up dropping all 3, and coming out with toy replacements. I think GM is making the same mistake with the Camaro and Trans Am. They should of merged them to keep one of them.

Here is my 93 Bird

LOTS of mods...
