what is an F-10 platform and an F-12?

here is a guest book entry of a friend of mine with a '89 SC. what is this? I know they are MN-12's. Is this refering to something else on the car?


""sweet super coupe , f-10 platform, i drive an f-12 platform . similar to the t-bird check out my mark VIII. you got a nice ride man.""

The mark is the FN-10 platform, I think he has his wires crossed.

Platform is the basic structure, including drivetrain, that the car is built on. Ex: Lincoln LS= new Thunderbird, Ford Ranger= Mazda B-truck etc.

The FN10 is based on the MN12, but it is slightly longer and slightly wider.

The Bird and the Mark both have 113 inch wheelbase and the same Track: f/r (in.): 61.6/60.2

The body is wider, longer & taller however on the Mark VIII.
