Body code vs chassis code -FoMoCo
Published 16/08/2022 @ 15:19:35, By dhill_cb7
Hi all,

Upon speaking with antp he instructed me to get feedback or consensus from the community. I am in no way calling out anyone. This is purely a discussion on how we classify certain FoMoCo codes on our site.

We can discuss other models but mainly for body code vs chassis code. There was a change recently with the panther codes we use without discussing with the community.

For over a decade we used [P70/71/72/73/74/75] as the chassis code for the Crown Vics. A few years ago this same process was adopted to the GM [M74/75] and more recently to the Town Car [M81/82/83/84/85].

I will follow up with a site for breakdown and a few examples.


*If the community chooses to use body codes vs chassis codes the WE have a lot to change. Simpler would be to keep the same system we currently use as changing 1000s of entries would be counter productive.*

Please let us discuss how we want to proceed. Again I am not calling anyone out. This is a discussion as a community. Thank you.

I knew the subject is old, but I still want to agree that we can use [M8*] codes for Town car and other Lincoln car
It seems like we have more [M8*] codes rather than [SI4]
As dhill said, we already use [P7*] and [M7*] for lots of cars on site, and since other cars using Panther platforms follow this pattern, why rule out Town Car?
