Fox project for sale
Economics force the sale of our family project;
84 Mark VII LSC, turning into a BBF powered drag racer.
Body fair, needs a fender, windshield, could use a door (T-bird door will work too), a lot of sound deadener has been stripped, interior completely stripped. Mark VII steering column included. Mark VII wiring pared down to lights and engine. No luxury items at all. Needs paint.
Clear Michigan title.
Mild 84 460 from an F250, straight up timing chain, Weiand Stealth, Mac long tubes, dizzy recurve, otherwise stock, runs very good, sounds VERY! good. Revs like a small block, but with big block torque. (The engine ran very close to this state of tune in my 84 F250. The Stealth and the bigger carb are different now and it had smaller tube Hooker headers on the truck.) Completely stock C6 trans works well. New OEM flywheel
Stock LSC 8.8 disc brake posi with 4-11 gears, stock rear suspension. No front struts, brakes, spindles, they are going on another project. It has not been converted to coils. We were going to use manually controlled air bags until we proved it to ourselves that they would not work in a drag racing application. 4 good air bags included. PS rack included.
The car never moved under 460 power, but you can hear it run. (The carb in the pic CAN NOT go with car. It is from a 70 428 CJ Mustang, and it is not part of the package. It's too small for real power anyway.)
Lots of potential and it sucks that it has to be sold (I don't want to myself, but majority and lack of money rules.)
We will not part out anything, it has to go as a complete package. But at the price asked, the body essentially costs nothing, so if you have a better Fox body there is no loss on a good starter drag racer
We live in Michigan. Pic from last summer.
P.S. For an extra $100, an excellent straight rust free complete 84 Thunderbird front clip is available. It bolts on to the Mark VII and all the body lines line up. Weird maybe, unique for sure, and definitely lighter then the Mark VII front clip. We tried it and actually liked it but thought it's cooler as a pure Hot Rod Lincoln.
pic attached. That is a T-bird fender. Thats the only pic I got before I took the T-bird clip off.
