SVT wagon

Been wanting to build a SVT wagon, or at least a partial on for avfew years now.
I bought SVT brakes a year ago but missing the knuckles, have 17 inch rims allready, and did a HID swap.
A real nasty red SVT just came up for sale at a gas station 6 miles down the road.
Interior nasty, one lug nut on drivers wheel, runs rough, no plates, bad axle and brakes, and rattle can spray job on front bumper and hood.
But it does have all the parts i can swap onto my wagon, bumper, side skirts, mirrors, steering wheel.
So thinking of going back tomorrow and popping in a wheel stud to at least get it home safely.
Then figure out what to do with it after steeling some parts from it.

Should be a straightforward job. A few folks here have done it, just strip the SVT stuff and bolt back into the wagon.

Dont think I'm going to do the drivetrain.
The wagon is my daily driver and I'm not even allowed to work on my car where i live, and dont have a garage.
Going to just try to steel the body parts off of the SVT and get them painted to match my wagon.
Then try to find regular red focus parts to bolt back onto the SVT and get rid of it.

I've swapped the complete SVT brake package, rear sway bar, steering wheel, pb brake handle, and 5 spoke wheels onto my ZX5. Thought about the powertrain, or just the 6 speed, but I think I'm too old now for that.

I just wish I could keep motor mounts and alt's in the dang thing.

So i went and bought the 2002 SVT 2 door yesterday for $400.
The car us the biggest pile of crap I've ever seen or owned, owned by potheads it seems.
I had a friend follow me home after I installed 2 wheel studs onto the front drivers side, it had 3 snapped off.
The car barely made it to me house a whole 6 miles up the hill from the gas station the previous owner worked at.
Scanned it when i got it home, codes PO135, PO720, P1518, PO722, P1000, P1270, then U1041, U1123, U1262, B1359, B1252.
I would love to at least get it running to drivable condition again, so going to try tackling the codes one at a time.
Can't find the front O2 sensor already, and will search for the IMRC unit today.
I mainly just want the front bumper. Side skirts, and steering wheel for my wagon.
I may steel the brakes and suspension parts off of it too if I have to scrap the car.
I was used as a ashtray and garbage dump in the interior, more cleaning today.

That's nasty. LOL
I'd part it out.
Take what you need for your wagon.
Sell whatever parts have any value.
Junk the rest of it
