84 LTD with 4V swap

This will be the third LTD I've built over the last few years and I'm really looking forward to this one. It's an 84 LTD w/ roll up windows that I bought as a roller. I have an 03 Marauder that I bought a few years ago that was my DD. When I got the Marauder, the trans was destroyed and #5 had ZERO compression. I freshened up the engine rebuilt the heads and completely went through the 4R70. I added an FTI 2600 stall converter, SW long tubes, UD crank pulley, CAI, 4:10's, and a Marty O tune. I enjoyed the car until one day my wife was driving it to work and crashed it... I bought another Marauder the next day and sat the other one off to the side to do a frame swap w/ a 55 F-`100. I'm not really a truck guy and had just sold the second LTD I built when I came across this 84 for cheap. I decided to build the LTD instead of the F-100, but I'm going to trade what's left of the Marauder for an 04 P71 to do the F-100 swap. I pulled the engine, trans, and wiring pulled from the Marauder the other night, and will hopefully start test fitting things this weekend. The only part I'm concerned about is the wiring, and hopefully it won't be too bad.

I cleaned up the car some over the weekend and did the first test fit. I found out that the Marauder manifolds are a no go and the hood won't shut w/ the stock LTD k-member. I was able to find a Mach 1 K-member w/ arms, and springs and also a set of 96-98 Cobra manifolds. I plan to swap out the k-member and manifolds this week and hopefully get started on the wiring.
