mn12 and Mk8 are the same.....mn12 is the body style. Like FOX is the chassis platform for Stang/mark7/Tbird/Cougar/LTD

just fyi, since you listed it twice above

If I had known that, I obviously wouldn't be asking that question.

No, the Mark 8 is the FN10 body.

I widthdraw that information after a short bout of research

"The ’93 to ’98 Lincoln Mark VIII is technically
not an MN12 chassis as it had its own name of FN10, but there are many
similarities between the MN12 and FN10 platforms"

You would be hard pressed to identify it as any differnt.....so what are the differences?

ok, lets do this the easy way. The internal Ford chassis designation for the Mk8 is FN10. So, you could argue similatrities and differences all day long, but a Mk8 is not an MN12.

Engine and suspension both spring to mind.

Engine isn't exactly what makes the chassis, so leave that out - what are some specifics? Is there any threads or vice/verso info laying around?

Any suspension specifics?

Will FN10 fenders fit an MN12? Windsheild? doors?

Even though the suspension might be change, it is the chassis I am talking about...obviously the suspension will not interchange due to mounting positions changed?

FN10 and MN12 doors, fenders, hoods, bumper covers, etc., are not interchangable.

Not counting glass etc not interchanging. The entire interior is as close to being a bolt in swap as putting a V12 in a Pinto.

EDIT: And actually, the suspension will interchange. As long as you have the air system and the rear lower control arms, thats pretty much the gist of it.

I remember buying a frpp pumpkin a few years back in a group buy of sorts from here...then I put it in the car, sold car to my brother, he decided he wanted the t-lok with the 3.08's and moved the 3.08's to the alum pumpkin and now I got 3.73's and an iron pumpkin sitting here with a bucket of bolts.
