Re: 69 c10 crown vic frame

Anybody ever do a body drop on a c10? Was looking around at the metal shop and they had 2 x 6 square tuning on sale so I picked up a few lengths. Plan is to move the frame in around 3" and down. Going to take the springs out to see how far down I have to make my new frame so I can slam it down. But...then I have to drop the body down to cover the new frame. The pan is rusted out in all 4 corners and well as around the rockers so it will have to replaced anyway. This should be fun.

Re: 69 c10 crown vic frame

I was just thinking today that the Crown Vic must have been one of the most "sorted out" platforms ever built. Millions of cab drivers and police using and abusing them for a decade of feedback and analysis... if Ford took all of that data to heart, that thing must have been bulletproof by the final years!

Its pretty solid brake and suspension wise. It seems pretty simple to integrate an older f1 or f100 to the vic chassis. I also read the interceptor comes with some with some sort of posi. But Chevy runs deep lol.

A few progress pics. Seems to be pretty "simple". This is way more work than I originally wanted to do with this truck but I get so far and say fudge it, might as well go all the way
