FastBird232 said:Wait, the '98 was supposed to be FWD? Or subsequent models?
SVT2888 said:I think your thinking of the t-bird that was going to replace the MN-12's. Ford wouldn't waist their money trying to make a rwd platform FWD.
Hmm, that sounds like a good place to have a So Cal chapter meetBlackCat94 said:The last MN-12 T-Bird (built Sept. 5(?) 1997) is at the Classic Thunderbird Club International's headquarters, in Signal Hill CA, which is near Long Beach I believe.
Not even Ford would be that stupid... the development costs of turning a RWD into a FWD would be impossibly expensive and never be justifiable. Plus the 4.6 V8 couldn't possibly be transversely mounted in a MN-12 chassis.FastBird232 said:Man, what would be the point in turning a RWD platform FWD? Stupid Ford...That makes no sense whatsoever.
Kinda gets you wondering, what would the FWD (non-MN12) Thunderbird be like? Sort of like a Ford Monte Carlo? A two door Taurus variant?
I gave it a try. I'm not too "up" on these things and the fact that it's late doesn't help any. Here's what I came up with, maybe someone else can finish it...FastBird232 said:I still think someone could decipher the entire VIN and run a Carfax. We've got the serial number, we just need some nice guy to actually run it...
