V8?

Recommended Posts

Was there ever a V8 concept? I read that CDW27 was designed to house multiple drivetrain configurations, even V8 RWD. I've been curious how much of this idea was left in a production platform, or if there was ever a prototype or mule built. 

 

It just so happens I've got a 4x4 Mondeo with a rotted shell, and I've been toying with the idea of using the shafts, rear beam supports and rear suspension components in a healthier body, maybe try to fit a 7" or 7.5" limited slip diff from a Sierra, and engine+transmission from a fox Mustang...but no idea how much fabrication or changes to bodywork would be required.

 

Or even if the excellent driveability would survive a heavy V8 and RWD.

Thanks for the quick reply! Shame about no concepts or anything...well at least if I do get this out of head and into reality, it would really be a first then. 

Or maybe transverse Taurus V8 and 4wd. Or maybe keep it as it is, and leave the powerslides to the Sierra...
