F-100 Crown Vic Swap



PROJECT TRUE BLUE, OUR 1963 FORD F-100 UNIBODY, NEEDED A NEW LEASE ON LIFE. If you’ve been following along in the previous issues of F-100 Builder’s Guide, you know that we decided to breathe new life into our clapped out and rusted Uni by way of a full Crown Vic makeover. For the new readers here, we’re smack dab in the middle of doing a “body swap.” Taking this worn out ’63 F-100 that would usually just be junked or be a parts truck, we’re now mating it to a 2008 Crown Vic Police Interceptor rolling chassis to give True Blue a second shot at road duties.

Since the last update, we took a trip on over to I95 Motorsports to get the F-100 merged to the CVPI. First thing we did was get it into the shop and on the lift, and then we proceeded to remove the body from the factory frame. Once the frame was out, it was time for the real fun. We supported the truck on boat stands as well as the lift to be extra safe. Solomon from Unibody Union has done this swap before with I95 Motorsports on Project Black Sheep. So, they already had a leg up on where to cut on the F-100. The plan was executed using cutoff wheels, Sawzall and a plasma cutter depending on the cuts/area needed. They made quick work of removing the old rusted out firewall, cab floor and bed floor.
