Depends on what you are looking for, I have quite a few SVT Focus parts. I have a complete interior for a 3 door(blue and black). And most everything for a 5 doot(red and black). Complete engine and trans. I?ve been looking for another project car. But I need to find newer project cars. These older ones are fun. But I can?t keep them all, and require so much work to sell them. May consider parting with the SVT Wagon, or I have a 2004 SVT Focus ZX3.

It’s been a while since my last post. Kinda put the wagon on the back burner. Did a 2.5 swap on my sons Focus ST. But I’m back on the wagon. Not much left to actually finishing it. So I’ll post some more pics of the progress. Everything went great from the front doors forward. Had some minor hurdles to jump from the rear doors back. Rear suspension from a SVT would not bolt in directly. So I had to take all of my rear suspensions and build the perfect one for me. I had to swap the rear discs from the SVT over to the rear subframe of the wagon. Then I had another SVT that had aftermarket stabilizer bars and adjustable rear control arms. I have all of that in place now on the wagon. Coming along nicely. Had to drill the rear seat mount out of the SVT and spot weld into place to get the lower rear seat to bolt in. Then had to remove the rear seat covers from the SVT and install on the metal wagon frames to get them to latch correctly. Found a Mach Audo subwoofer and going to install it. Small hurdles to overcome. Still have been unable to find a wagon with the charcoal black interior. I need the cargo panels and trunk carpeting. Not even sure if a wagon ever had charcoal black interior. Here are some pics. Sorry for the delay. But I’m back on it now. Hopefully it will be finished in the next week.

Still chugging away at the build. Finished the rear suspension and fuel tank. Got the Borla exhaust installed. Have to lengthen the tail pipe about 6 inches. Very slight modifications to perform total swap. I’m guessing somewhere north of 200 hours. It’s not for someone who is not dedicated. And I lost focus (no pun intended) myself. Parking brake cables installed. Console installed and shift boot installed. I can actually fire up the engine at the moment. Not going to fire it until it’s complete. I’m giving myself a goal to strive for.

Got the strut tower brace installed. Next is the poly engine/ transmission mount and torque strut. I can’t t believe I’m this close to finishing it. I did have to drill the spot welds and remove the rear lower seat mounting bracket from the SVT. Since my car had the bench rear seat and the SVT seats were the 60/40, I didnt t have the center mounting boots. But a drill and a slight massage with a hammer then weld the bracket in. I am just like new. Got the rear calipers painted. Looking for Bilstein shock and strut combo right now. I think Im going to get it running and driving first before that.

I looked at my first post. I can’t believe it’s been over 2 years and this project is not finished yet. But I have had to do some other projects in the meantime. I’m finishing up a Crown Vic swap in a 78 F100 right now.
