Yes.

There was a motor home built in the 80s with the front end of a Lincoln Mark VII.

TK,
I admit it! ... I'm envious!
I really need to get my priorities straight and find one before they are too far gone to salvage. If I could find a second one with the front trashed and interior stripped, it would make a cool trailer to haul my Mark VII around in behind it for transportation! :idea:

Ok.... Back to reality now.... :(

(These were also sold as Americruiser.)

Wow.

Too cool.

Yes. From what I've read, the 460 was standard yet there have been conversions.
I would need the heart of an F150 to even consider pulling a Mark on a trailer.

One of these days, I've godda' have one of those.

I also restore Motorhomes. I've done quite a number of unusual units in the past.

The cool thing about restoring motorhomes is that you don't have to go too far to get a cold drink or snack, use the restroom or take a nap! :lol:
I'll find one... when the time is right....

Right now, the time is NOT right! :roll: :?
